Upland DB Batiste looking for new school after SDSU offer was pulled

Upland senior football player Delvin Batiste is searching for a new college destination after San Diego State, to which he verbally committed in August, pulled its scholarship offer. The three-star cornerback was offered a scholarship by San Diego State in June but the Aztecs changed their plans in late December.

“I think one of San Diego State’s guys got hurt and they wanted somebody who could come in right away and contribute,” Upland football coach Tim Salter said. “Delvin got the vibe from them that they were going to go after a junior college guy instead of him.”

Since parting ways with San Diego State, the 5-foot-10, 180-pound cornerback has received interest from Boise State, San Jose State and Sacramento State, according to Salter.
