Hunter Dimick has been hearing from multiple coaching staffs that said they liked his film but wanted to see him in summer camp before offering.
San Diego State decided to go a different route and tell the Syracuse, Utah, defensive end that not only did they like his junior season highlight tape but that they wanted to offer as well.
It's a big deal for Dimick, a 6-foot-4, 250-pound prospect who shined at the Badger Sport Elite Linemen Challenge in Las Vegas and now he hopes the San Diego State offer can push others to offer as well.
"I'm extremely excited," Dimick said.
"I was told by about 10 colleges that they really liked my film and they wanted to see me at camp. It was really, really nice to hear that one school wanted to offer me a scholarship."
While Dimick said he doesn't know too much about the Aztecs yet he's definitely set on doing his research and possibly taking an unofficial visit to San Diego State soon. Getting on campus and meeting with the coaching staff will be important so Dimick can figure out whether it's a fit or not.
"I don't know a whole lot about them right now," Dimick said. "I have just been receiving the form letters and I haven't been getting recruited too hard.
"I definitely want to visit. When I save enough money I'm definitely planning to go out there, take a tour of the campus and see the facilities."
Many other schools are showing interest as well in Dimick, who said Air Force might be close to offering.
Oregon State, BYU, UCLA and Kansas State have also been keeping in contact. In his junior season, Dimick finished with 50 tackles, 14 sacks and a fumble recovery.
