San Diego State junior RB Donnel Pumphrey will return to school.

"It was an easy decision on coming back (for his senior season)," Pumphrey said in a released statement. "I love my teammates and I love my coaches, and without them I wouldn't even be in the situation that I am in today. I signed up to be here four years, not to leave after three. I've had incredible success here, but I want to have another good year, hopefully win another conference championship and graduate as well." The 5-foot-9, 170-pounder is a two-time All-Mountain West pick and the reigning conference offensive player of the year. He rushed for 1,653 yards (5.4 YPC) and scored 17 touchdowns last season. "I would like to break all of (Marshall) Faulk's records," Pumphrey said. "He's an NFL Hall-of-Famer and had a terrific college career, and it would be a great accomplishment for our team if I was able to achieve that."

San Diego State redshirt senior OG Darrell Greene accepted an invite to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Greene will join fellow SDSU OL Pearce Slater at the event. The 6-foot-4, 315-pound Greene was seen as a sleeper prospect coming into the season but hurt himself in 2015 because he missed the first six games due to a suspension and missed the Hawaii Bowl after being declared academically ineligible. CBSSports does not project Greene to be selected, though it wouldn't surprise us if he worked into the latter stages of Day 3 with a nice postseason circuit. He'll get started at the fifth-annual NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, played at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. on Jan. 23 and televised on ESPN2.

San Diego State junior CB Damontae Kazee plans to declare for the 2016 NFL Draft.

"Been playing this game for almost 16 years, it’s time for me to move up to the next level," Kazee posted on social media. The Aztecs just dominated Cincinnati in their bowl game 42-7, with Kazee allowing just 27 yards on five catches and added an interception. On the season, the 5'11/188 lbs corner deflected two passes but intercepted eight.

San Diego State redshirt freshman QB Christian Chapman completed 8-of-11 passes for 113 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 42-7 win over Cincinnati in the Hawaii Bowl.

Chapman was making his second consecutive start in place of the injured Maxwell Smith (knee). He's been efficient in both of those games, completing a combined 17-of-25 passes for 316 yards. Perhaps more importantly, the 6-foot-1, 200-pound redshirt freshman failed to throw an interception in either contest. In Thursday's Hawaiian showdown with Cincy, Chapman notched a 14-yard touchdown pass to Mikah Holder on the first offensive possession. San Diego State's been predictably conservative in their game plans for the gunslinger given his lack of starting experience. The Aztecs finished the season on a 10-game winning streak, this after opening 1-3.

San Diego State junior RB Donnel Pumphrey rushed for 99 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries in Thursday's 42-7 win over Cincinnati in the Hawaii Bowl.

Pumphrey wasn't exactly lighting the world on fire, as he averaged an even four yards per carry with a long run of 33 yards. Given the dominance of the defense (three interceptions of Bearcat QB Hayden Moore), though, the Aztecs really didn't need a huge game from their star running back. The 5-foot-9, 170-pound junior would score his lone touchdown of the contest in the fourth quarter from two yards out. He also threw a 16-yard touchdown pass before halftime, just for fun. Pumphrey finishes the 2015 campaign having rushed for 1,653 yards (5.4 YPC) and 17 touchdowns. The Hawaii Bowl marked just the fifth time all season that he failed to rush for at least 100 yards.

San Diego State senior LS Jeffrey Overbaugh will play in the Senior Bowl.

Overbaugh pledged to the NFLPA Bowl earlier this week but quickly received an upgrade to better digs. Standing 6-foot-2, 240 pounds, Overbaugh is one of the nation's best snappers and should get a camp invite. The Alaska native was a preseason fourth-team All-American by Phil Steele.

ESPN's Mel Kiper believes San Diego State senior T Pearce Slater "could be a Day 3 steal, perhaps in Round 5."

Slater recently accepted an invitation to participate in the NFLPA Bowl, so you can check him out there if you miss the Aztecs' upcoming bowl game. "The 6-foot-7, 335-pound right tackle will make you take a week to get around him," Kiper wrote. "At his best in run-blocking, he has strong hands, sustains his blocks and will win one and get to the second level ahead of the play." CBS ranks Slater as the No. 17 tackle in the class and projects him as a Rd. 6 selection.

San Diego State junior CB Damontae Kazee is expected to enter the draft, according to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Kazee picked off seven passes, broke up another another seven and kicked in 66 tackles en route to Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year honors. The 5-foot-11, 185-pounder was a second-team all-Mountain West selection last year after making 58 tackles (40 solo) with a team-high 13 pass breakups, an interception, a fumble recovery, four TFL and two quarterback hurries.

San Diego State junior RB Donnel Pumphrey rushed for 90 yards on 16 carries in Saturday's 27-24 Mountain West Championship Game win over Air Force.

No touchdowns for Pumphrey, but he did average a strong 5.6 YPC with a long run of 31 yards. While he didn't rip up the joint on Saturday, he's been fantastic for the whole of the 2015 campaign. The 5-foot-9, 170-pound junior finishes the pre-bowl season with 1,554 yards and 16 touchdowns. Saturday's 90 yards marked just the fourth time all year that he's been held under 100 yards rushing.

San Diego State senior T Pearce Slater accepted an invitation to participate in the NFLPA Bowl.

CBS pegs the mammoth 6-foot-7, 335-pounder as the No. 17 tackle in the class and No. 210 prospect overall. Slater, a first-team preseason all- Mountain West selection by Phil Steele, is currently projected as a sixth-rounder by CBS.

San Diego State senior LS Jeffrey Overbaugh will play in the NFLPA Bowl.

Overbaugh probably won't get drafted, but he'll get a camp invite over the summer because he's one of the nation's best snappers. Standing 6-foot-2, 240 pounds, this Alaska native was named a preseason fourth-team All- American by Phil Steele. Overbaugh's school bio says of him: "Grades out high on production, durability, snapping speed-accuracy ratio, consistency, blocking and coverage, and intangibles ... Laces out spiral on placekick snaps." Ray Finkle -- Laces out! -- would love him.

San Diego State graduate QB Maxwell Smith will delay ACL surgery to try and play in the school's bowl game.

"He says he's going to try to play in the bowl game. He's going to try to rehab and put it in a brace and see if he can play...then he's going to get operated on after the bowl game. That's his plan right now," said Aztec coach Rocky Long. Smith tore his left anterior cruciate ligament in Saturday’s win over Nevada. Backup quarterback Christian Chapman will start Saturday’s game against Air Force.

San Diego State junior RB Donnel Pumphrey rushed for 154 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries in Saturday's 31-14 win over Nevada.

San Diego State lost three of their first four games, but they've turned it around with eight consecutive wins to close out the 2015 regular season. Much of that's due to the brilliant work of Pumphrey, who's ripped off 100-plus rushing yards in each of those eight victories. For the season, the 5-foot-9, 170-pound junior's gone off for 1,464 yards and 16 touchdowns. Not quite up to par with his 1,867-yard, 20-touchdown campaign as a sophomore, but that was a pretty high bar to reach to begin with.

San Diego State redshirt senior OG Darrell Greene has "moved himself into the late rounds of the draft," writes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Greene entered the season with a UDFA grade. "The wide bodied blocker is a powerful mauler that shows surprising skill on the second level," Pauline wrote. "During the Aztecs thumping of Utah State, a victory which kept them undefeated in the Mountain West, Greene’s blocking helped lead the way for 336-yards on the ground." The 6-foot-4, 315-pounder is seen as a sleeper prospect.
Tue, Oct 27, 2015 09:01:00 PM

San Diego State junior RB Donnel Pumphrey has 424 yards rushing in the last three games.

He's coming off a season-high 152 yards against San Jose State. Pumphrey got off to a slow start and then suffered through a nagging ankle injury. It appears he's returned to 100 percent health and effectiveness. The 5-foot-9, 170-pounder, who produced 1,873 yards and 20 touchdowns last season, should be back on your DFS radar if he wasn't already.
