Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) receiver Ray Surry got one surprise on Monday and then surprised himself more.
San Jose State offered Surry on Monday and he didn't waste much time jumping on it.
"They offered yesterday and it was a surprise," said Surry. "And then I kind of even surprised myself by committing so quickly."
But Surry had done his homework on the Spartans and it wasn't as if the offer from head coach Ron Caragher came completely out of nowhere.
"I went to their Junior Day and I took a visit then," said Surry. "Yeah I kind of surprised myself, but it all came back to the visit. I loved the facilities and know it's a great fit for myself."
Surry said even when he took the visit back in the spring, he could envision himself playing for San Jose State.
"When I took the visit, I liked it and I thought I fit the program and could do bigger and better things there," said Surry.
Spartans defensive backs coach Donte Williams was Surry's primary recruiter and he also talked with receivers coach Terry Malley.
"Me and Coach Donte have a really great relationship and he was the one who was recruiting me," said Surry. "Coach Malley, I like him and how he coaches their receivers and helps them to better their game."
With his decision over, Surry said he could look back on it and be confident in the decision and focus on Rancho Cucamonga this fall.
"It's a very big relief and one everyone dreams of," said Surry. "To actually have it, it's a big accomplishment. My family is very excited and my mom can come to every one of my games."
Surry is a part of Ground Zero's 7v7 team, and becomes the fifth player from that team to make a commitment, and the fourth to commit to a Mountain West school. Three teammates from Ground Zero are headed to San Diego State, including his prep teammate Jerry Chaney.
"We are all going to be very competitive and are already talking about going to their game," said Surry. "Me and Hasani Smith are already clashing and me and Jerry are going to be competitive every day in practice. But we're going to have a lot of fun together this year."
