Sacramento State is quietly having a very solid recruiting class this year. That was only enhanced when the Hornets picked up a commitment from one of the top defensive backs in the state in Vallejo's (Calif.) Bethel Bobby Guillory.
Guillory, 5-10, 170 pounds is one of the state's top cover corners. He had a solid season on both sides of the ball rushing for 537 yards and seven touchdowns on just 38 carries and also earned all-league and all-area honors on the defensive side of the ball.
Early on in the year, Guillory was hearing from a host of schools including USC, Oregon, Washington and Cal and had offers from Idaho and Nevada in addition to Sac State. He took an official visit to Sacramento back in mid December and decided to end the recruiting process last Thursday.

"I thought I would take a few other visits but it just felt right at Sac State," Guillory said. "I got a positive feeling from everyone there and it felt like they cared about me as a person and not just a football player. One of the big advantages is I have a learning disability and Sac State offers a program that will help me whereas a lot of other schools don't offer anything like that.
"That was why a lot of schools kind of backed off me but Sac State stayed with me the whole time. I like the coaches there and they said I would have a good shot at coming in and playing right away so that was another thing that was very appealing to me."
