Had a chance to catch up with Tyler Wilemon, the latest player to commit to the Aggies, during the weekend. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound offensive lineman at Saddleback Community College in Mission Viejo, Calif., didn't take long to ponder an offer from the Aggies, committing during his visit.
"I fell in love with the place," he said. "I really like the coaching staff and the school nd Logan is beautiful. I can't wait to get there."
Originally from Memphis, Wilemon was also entertaining thoughts of going to Georgia State or Southern Miss, but a good relationship with Utah State's coaches, plus the good impressions Wilemon had during his visit, made his decision an easy one.
The other reason he picked the Aggies?
"They win," he said simply. "I haven't been on many winning teams in my career and they are known for their wins. They are definitely moving in the right direction."
Wilemon said he hopes to contribute to the winning ways with hard work.
"I plan to work hard so everyone around me will work hard too," he said. "I want to help us get a couple more bowl wins."
