An official visit to San Diego State turned out to be a worthwhile trip for Stevenson Ranch (Calif.) West Ranch quarterback Jake Bernard...

Stevenson Ranch (Calif.) West Ranch quarterback Jake Bernard was getting anxious as Signing Day approached.

Without an offer, Bernard wondered if one would come his way.

Then San Diego State offered him a chance to come in on an official visit. On the trip, new head coach Brady Hoke offered Bernard, and he immediately accepted it.

"I had a great visit, I committed on the trip," said Bernard. "I was crossing my fingers something would happen because Signing Day was only a week and a half away. So when they offered I was both excited and relieved."

Bernard is anxious to begin his time in San Diego, noting the coaching staff in place.

"They have a new staff who's trying to rebuild the program," said Bernard. "I'll be coached by Coach Brian Sipe (new quarterbacks coach), and Coach Al Borges (the offensive coordinator) knows how to put points on the board."

Bernard enjoyed everything else about the official visit as well.

"The campus is real nice and the area surrounding it," said Bernard. "It's not too far from home either."

Bernard also plays baseball, but said with the football scholarship in tow, he'll be done with baseball after this season.

"It's just hard playing football and being a quarterback to do both sports," said Bernard.
