San Diego State has been busy trying to fill scholarships this offseason. The Aztecs already had commitments from Joel Mensah, Nathan Mensah, and Jordan Campbell once the season ended, however Campbell decommitted and went to Oregon State, which left another scholarship open. Junior wing Max Montana went pro after the season bringing the open scholarships to four.
The coaches brought Washington transfer Malachi Flynn and The-Skill-Facotry wing Aguek Arop into the fold. With two scholarships left for this year the Aztecs seemingly have one target at the top of their board, former Washington commit Ed Chang. Chang is scheduled to visit San Diego State this weekend and we asked him what stands out about the Aztecs.
“The things that stands out about San Diego State are the city, the school, and basketball program as a whole.”
Chang is from Nebraska, where he was a two-time all-state performer, but he transferred to Washington for his senior season, however he did not play. He committed to the University of Washington, but never signed and decommitted from the Huskies after the spring.
Even though Chang did not play his senior year that does not mean that he has not been working on his skills. He has been training to stay ready for when he gets to college. We asked him to give us an assessment of his game and this was what he had to say:
“My biggest strength is being able to shoot the ball from anywhere on the court and causing a mismatch for other taller players because I am a big guard.”
In terms to his recruiting Chang is down to three, maybe four schools. Chang announced a final three of San Diego State, Nebraska, and Mississippi, however Missouri has since offered and are now being considered. Regardless of who he ends up selecting Chang knows what he wants in a school.
“I just want a place that puts me in the best position to reach my full potential as a player and person.”
After San Diego State Chang has a visit planned to Missouri. Chang is itching to get back on the court and wherever he goes he hopes to make an impact from day one, maybe that will be on the Mesa.
