Well, the coaches talk to the players before they invite them on official visits.  I wouldn't call them "interviews" but they gauge a player's interest level.  It's not like any random recruit can call up SDSU and say, "Hi. I know I've never talked to anyone at your school, but I'm calling to place my reservation for an official visit on Feb. 1."

Additionally, I believe I read that players have to show that they're on track or capable of graduating with their class before they can take an official visit.  I believe they have to submit unofficial or official transcripts from their high school, or at least a statement from the school saying that they are on pace to graduate with the Class of 2013.

SDSU isn't exactly the beachiest place in the world.  It's inland San Diego. Relative to the midwest, it's like a vacation spot, but if he's interest in being close to some cool beaches, he'd be better off visiting Miami, UCLA, and USC (once breaching the dangers of the surrounding neighborhood).

Bout willis?

Sdsu isn't on the beach, but its much closer and easier to get to than the slum that USC resides in.

The SDSU kids are always going to the beach. Pacific Beach is the party area and there are many accessible beaches.USC is not so easily accessible as you're making out out to be.

Agree with the poster above - SDSU is at least as close to the beach as UCLA (probably closer, and certainly closer to fun beaches) and it's much closer than USC. 

Now, if he could swing an official to UC San Diego, that would be the beachiest of them all, with University of San Diego being not too far behind.

You know whats funny, Peperdine came to mind right as I was hitting enter, but I figured nobody would call me on it. I was implying FBS schools, because no 5 star recruit will end up at Peperdine. That and the school itself is up on the cliffs of Malibu, I'm not sure if it actually touches the ocean, and if there is even a beach there.

The mornings have been in the low 30s.

So if he wants boats and ho's, look further south.

Unless he wants to dress like the Sydney to Hobart racers....
