Zamore Zigler of Carter High picks San Jose State

Carter High senior Zamore Zigler seen above from an interview during his junior year after returning a punt for a touchdown, has committed to play football at San Jose State, coach Alex Pierce reports.

Pierce said Zigler has not yet made his trip to San Jose State.

Zigler, recruited as a running back, has only 47 yards rushing for Carter this season. But he has been explosive once again as a returner, returning four kicks (three punts and one kickoff) for touchdowns this season. He also has an interception and six pass deflections as a defensive back

Last year, he had five touchdowns on returns, including one against Colton, about which he is talking in the interview.

Arroyo Valley’s Maurice McKnight changes commitment

Arroyo Valley’s Maurice McKnight, a quarterback and a running back who was an all-league selection last year for the Hawks, has changed his college commitment, coach Tony DiThomas reports.

McKnight had originally committed to San Diego State, but has since switched to San Jose State.

“It has to do with the system they run,” DiThomas said.
