Last weekend San Diego State hosted three big-time recruits on official visits. The trio consisted of Georgia center Ebenezer Dowuona, Nevada shooting guard Noah Taitz, and California wing/forward Coleman Hawkins.
Hawkins is the son of former Aztecs basketball player Rodney Hawkins and a large target on the San Diego State radar. The 6-9 forward enjoyed his official visit to America’s Finest City and had glowing reviews about his time in San Diego.
“The visit was great, it was good too see the campus and hang with the team and it was also cool because of my dads connection with the school, so he had plenty of stories to tell.”
Hawkins had some great questions in mind for his visit and the staff was clear and reassuring on his role in the program. The Aztecs staff put together a great presentation and really did well on showing Hawkins his value and fit on the team.
“I felt welcomed by the coaching staff and the players as well. I learned how the coaches planned on using me, they compared me to Malik Pope and Jalen McDaniels.”
This weekend Hawkins will head to Illinois for his next visit. After that he has an official to Marquette on September 22nd, and Southern California on October 18th. He has mentioned many times that he would like to make a decision this fall, but is open to waiting until the spring if he does not feel comfortable.
The Aztecs have three scholarships left for the 2020 class with one commit on board, point guard Lamont Butler. Thursday 2020 target Che Evans will make his decision.
