San Diego State picked up a big time scorer as Cal State Northridge graduate transfer Terrell Gomez picked the Aztecs over other finalists, Arkansas, Iowa State, and Washington State. The 5-8 guard is one of the best shooters on the transfer market and was a player that the Aztecs could not pass up.
Gomez went to high school at Inglewood High School (Inglewood, CA) where he was a three-star recruit according to 247Sports. After his senior year he went to renown prep school Middlebrooks Academy were he took a prep year. From prep school Gomez attended CSUN for his three seasons where he starred.
At CSUN he averaged double figures in each of his three seasons, including 19+ points in each of the last two seasons. In all three years he did not shoot less than 40% from the field (43.9% last year) and three-point range (44.0% last year). On top of that he was an excellent free throw shooter, making 94.8% of his attempts from the charity stripe.
With the addition of Gomez the Aztecs are now a the scholarship limit. The Aztecs are still awaiting for Malachi Flynn's decision to test the NBA waters and on an extra scholarship that comes with it. San Diego State is still in pursuit of a big man, namely Long Beach State transfer Joshua Morgan and Loyola Marymount graduate transfer Mattias Markusson. Another name that came out today was JuCo forward Maurice Calloo, who once played for Oklahoma State. It seems like the Aztecs are not done adding to the roster.
