Lakeside (Calif.) El Capitan quarterback Ryan Lindley is one of the fastest rising players in the Golden State. And to their credit the San Diego State Aztecs realized his potential long before other schools, offering him a scholarship. That offer has turned into something much more than that.
"Ryan has committed to Chuck Long and Del Miller at SDSU," his father, Tim Lindley, said on Tuesday morning.
"He took a trip to Idaho a couple of weeks ago, canceled his trip to Fresno State and was recently offered by Nevada-Reno. He is excited about the decision and is pleased to be heading to play for coach Long."
Lindley, who is in line to move up in the updated player rankings in November, was recruited personally by Miller, the SDSU offensive coordinator.
As a senior, Lindley (6-3, 205) has thrown for 2,572 yards and completed 62 percent of his passes. He's also thrown 27 touchdowns with only four pickoffs. He averages 285 yards passing a game.
