The San Diego State Aztecs just recently landed another good recruit in Malik Pope, according to ESPN. With that in mind, let’s take a look at their 2014 recruiting class so far.
San Diego State will have two four-stars and one three-star joining, according to ESPN. Pope is ranked No. 52 in the class of 2014 and Trey Kell is ranked No. 79, according to ESPN. Kevin Zabo is the other player set to join the team.
The Aztecs have been a very solid basketball program over the last few years and they are a team that makes the NCAA tournament on a yearly basis (at least as of recent). San Diego State made the tourney last season as a No. 7 seed and it will be interesting to see if it can make it in the upcoming season with the top two leading scorers no longer on the team.
Regardless, San Diego State seems to be set for the near future. Landing two top 100 recruits is a pretty big deal and the Aztecs still have some time to land even more talented players.
The MWC was solid last year and it seems like it is on the rise despite being a mid-major conference. The emergence of San Diego State has a lot to do with that.
The Aztecs will not be the favorites to win the MWC in the upcoming season, but they will have the talent to finish in the top five of the conference standings. Who knows, the team could be picked to win the conference title in the 2014-15 season with such a good recruiting class set to join.
