San Jose State picked up a commitment from one of the top players in the San Diego area when La Mesa (Calif.) Helix linebacker Rueben Leasau committed to the Spartans Monday night.

San Jose State is off to a fast start and has six total commitments with the recent pledge of Rueben Leasau.

“I committed last night,” Leasau said. “Everything just felt right at San Jose State. The coaching staff was great with me and my family and I felt like I had a good chemistry with everyone there. Plus it just felt like home when I visited and that’s what I was looking for.

“I took an unofficial visit back in April and really liked it a lot. Coach Donte Williams, he’s the one that was recruiting me and that’s my guy right there. I know it’s early for me but I just felt like this was the perfect fit for me so there was no point in putting it off. Plus I wanted to do it before my senior year so I could just focus on school and football and now I’ll be able to do that.”

Leasau had a solid showing at the SoCal NIKE Camp where he measured in at 6-1, 205 pounds and clocked a 4.88-40 and jumped 33 inches in the vertical. He has a long frame and will easily be able to hold another 25 pounds or so without a problem. He was a 1st team all-league selection a year ago for a team that went 10-1 and made it to the CIF semi-finals.
