There is no question that wide receiver/defensive back Sean Alston (5-10, 175, 4.6) from Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) Los Osos was one of the fastest rising prospects in the talent rich area of the Inland Empire in Southern California. He recently picked up his first offer and has decided to commit.
Alston decided to commit to Fresno State.
The Bulldogs are getting a very productive player in Alston. So far in six games the fast rising Alston has 31 receptions for 552 yards and seven touchdowns while averaging 17.8 yards per catch with a long of 63 yards. He is also playing some defense and has racked up seven tackles, three pass deflections and one interception.
Director of Scouting for SGV/IE Scouting James Escarcega, a service that keeps tabs on D-I talent in the San Gabriel Valley and the Inland Empire had the following to say about the fast rising Alston and his commitment to Fresno State.
"There is no player that shot up on our boards more than Sean Alston during the first three games of year," Escarcega said. "He was clearly the best player on the field in the season opener against Corona (Calif.) Colony and on a night when things weren't going well for Los Osos against J.W. North this kid played hard on every down - every minute.
"You can tell that he has worked his speed, but more than that, this kid simply doesn't drop the football," Escarcega said. "This is a huge pick-up for Fresno State and an absolutely perfect school for him to go too. And a great kid as well."
Alston is the type of player that Fresno State has made their living off during their very successful run. The Bulldog staff has always done a very nice job finding good players that fly under the radar and develop them into contributors.
Nice get for Fresno State.
