Ogburn switches to San Jose State

Arroyo Valley wide receiver Damon Ogburn, who committed to Idaho State after officially visiting the campus this past weekend, has reversed field and committed to San Jose State according to AVHS head coach Marcus Soward.

Ogburn’s switch was based on logisitics, as he felt that San Jose State gave him better access to his family in San Bernardino.

“San Jose is about a five-hour drive to San Bernardino and that was the biggest factor,” Soward said. “He thought about it and felt that Idaho State was a little too far away from his family.”

Ogburn joins DE Keenan Brown, who signed with the Spartans two years ago, as Arroyo Valley players who have gone off to San Jose State. Brown’s tale was similar, as he was committed to Utah State before switching to the Spartans in the 11th hour.

Arroyo Valley will have a ceremony for Ogburn and LB Ofa Fifita, who committed to Fresno State, Thursday as part of its senior assembly. Both players will fax their letters of intent to schools tomorrow though.
