Upland High School football standout Vincent Elefante has committed to Sacramento State. He broke the news via Twitter today.
Elefante has been to the school twice, once for a summer football camp and another time during the regular season when it played Montana State.
He was shown around campus by former Upland teammate Trevor Wright, who is just starting his sophomore year here there.
“I really liked it there and think it’s a good place to take my game to the next level,” he said.
Elefante played defensive end the past season for the Highlanders but expects to move to defensive tackle.
He also had considered Weber State and New Mexico, both places he had official visits scheduled for later this month.
Elefante was a first-team All-Inland Valley and Baseline League selection. The 6-foot-4, 280-pounder registered 43 tackles, 2 sacks, 2 fumbles caused and one fumble recovery.
He plans to major in anatomy/physiology or communications.
The Hornets went 7-5 overall and 4-4 in the Big Sky Conference the past season.
