Former Oregon QB Jake Rodrigues is heading to San Diego State.
According to AztecSportsReport.com, Rodrigues made the decision after having dinner with the coaching staff Friday evening. He has already filled out his paperwork to make the move official.
"Coach (Sipe) talked about me just making plays and leading the team, putting our players in the right situation, being a leader, throwing the ball in the right place and being accurate," Rodrigues told ASR. "I've also been blessed with athleticism in my feet so I can run if I have to.
"They're really excited, I'm really excited and I can't wait to see what comes of this."
A four-star recruit out of high school in 2012 according to Rivals, Rodrigues was battling with Jeff Lockie to be the top backup to Oregon's Marcus Mariota in 2014. Now he's preparing to play in 2015. Quinn Kaehler emerged as San Diego State's top quarterback last season and is a senior in 2014. Rodrigues will be a junior when he is eligible to play.
Rodrigues threw six passes in 2013, completing three and throwing a touchdown and an interception.
Before committing to San Diego State, he was set to visit Texas, which has been a possible destination for former USC quarterback Max Wittek. However, the chances of Wittek joining the Longhorns seem to be dimming as Wittek still searches for a school.
Per the Detroit Free-Press, Michigan also contacted Rodrigues.
