One of the main things that convinced Jeff Overbaugh San Diego State was the best fit for him was spending time with fellow specialists Travis Coons and Seamus McMorrow on his official visit last weekend.
The Anchorage (Alaska) Service offensive lineman said meeting with them and getting a feel for what the program is all about convinced him committing to the Aztecs was the best thing for his future.
Overbaugh, a 6-foot-2, 240-pound prospect, is expected to be a long snapper at San Diego State and he's open to other positions as well.

"It was pretty cool visiting with two other specialists that are already committed, Travis Coons and Seamus McMorrow," Overbaugh said. "That was a pretty big factor that I would be with two quality guys.
"It's obviously a terrific location with the climate and everything else especially with being a lot more connected to the lower 48 than I am now being from Alaska."
Academics also played a big factor for Overbaugh, who had an offer from Tennessee and was hearing a lot from Hawaii, too. Everything seemed to fit perfectly well at San Diego State and he decided to make his pledge.
Overbaugh is not expected to visit anywhere this weekend as National Signing Day gets closer.
"The academic program, exercise and nutrition sciences, is definitely terrific seeing that I want to study kinesiology," Overbaugh said. "The coaching staff was great so all-in-all it was a terrific situation.
"No one has come out and said I will only be the long snapper but that's pretty much what I know. That's what they've been talking to me about."
