Fresno State lands talented SoCal WR

WR Delvon Hardaway

Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey wide out Delvon Hardaway has been committed to San Jose State since early December but opened up the process following a coaching change. Sunday morning, the athlete decided he was headed in a different direction.

Delvon Hardaway recently narrowed his choices to San Jose State and Fresno State after receiving an offer from the Bulldogs a few weeks ago. The receiver took his official visit to FSU this past weekend and committed Sunday morning to the Bulldogs.

"I'm excited, it feels good to be a Bulldog," Hardaway said. "It's funny, the first night there, Friday night, I really wasn't feeling it. Then I had a long talk with Coach DeRuyter and he broke things down for me. It was a great talk and after that, I really started to open up to the place.

"Fresno is different than Los Angeles but I like it. It's more of a college town and everything shuts down during Bulldog football games. I met some great people and really got along well with the players and coaches. Ron Antoine is the receiver coach and he's a good guy, I like him a lot and he'll be a good coach for me."

Hardaway said the biggest reason he made the switch from San Jose State to Fresno State was the offense.

"Fresno State runs a wide open spread type offense and throws the ball a lot," Hardaway said. "I think I would do really well in that offense and it will be a lot of of fun to play in. I also like the opportunity to play early and the depth chart lines up pretty good for me.

"It was a tough decision and I liked the new coaches at San Jose State too. I just felt like Fresno State was the best overall fit for me. I think I'll do well there and I'm happy to have this all behind me and I'm ready to sign on Wednesday."
