Damien senior baseball standout Cody Rawson made a verbal commitment to San Diego State today
Rawson, a catcher, visited the school on earlier this week. He also took trips to Pepperdine and UC Santa Barbara before deciding to head South for college.
He has a cousin that graduated from the school and he knows a couple of players on the team who are from the Inland Valley. He also has family nearby.
“I like the feel that I got walking around campus,” he said,. “You could tell there was a lot of pride in being an Aztec. It’s close to home. Who wouldn’t want top stay in Southern California? I liked everything about it.”
Rawson, who hit .288, said he decided to get the decision out of the way now so he could focus on having a successful senior season and getting the Spartans back to the playoffs.
He plans to major in business/finance but hopes to pursue a career in firefighting when baseball is over.
