San Diego State redshirt senior WR Ezell Ruffin accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Ruffin is athletic and has strong hands. He would be a good fit as a slot receiver at the next level. Ruffin was on the shelf for five weeks earlier this season with a collarbone injury. Since his return, he's put on a show. According to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, Ruffin is a mid-round prospect with "the potential to develop into a third receiver at the next level."

San Diego State senior OT Terry Poole accepted an invite to the East-West Shrine Game.

Poole shifted to the blind side this year after starting 12 games at right tackle in 2013. He was an honorable-mention all-Mountain West performer last year. Though the 6-foot-5, 310-pound Poole came into this season graded by TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline as a UDFA, he could catch evaluator's eyes during the post-season evaluation period.

San Diego State redshirt senior WR Ezell Ruffin "has really turned it on since returning from the broken collarbone which sidelined him for five weeks," TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline notes.

According to the analyst, Ruffin entered the season stamped as a mid-round pick by scouts. "Well built with deceptive speed, the senior posted a season best 7 receptions for 126-yards during the win over Air Force," Pauline wrote. "Sneaky fast, Ruffin in averaging just under 20-yards per reception the past three games. He’s a legitimate middle round choice with the potential to develop into a third receiver at the next level." The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Ruffin is athletic and has strong hands; he would be a good fit as a slot receiver at the next level.

San Diego State senior QB Quinn Kaehler will miss Friday's game due to a shoulder sprain.

The injury is to Kaehler's throwing shoulder. The senior is the only quarterback the Aztecs have utilized this season, but he has not played well. In fact, Kaehler has thrown six interceptions to two touchdowns while completing less than 60 percent of his passes.

San Diego State redshirt junior OG Darrell Greene "really caught" Tony Pauline's eye on film.

"He’s big, strong and mobile," Pauline wrote. "Greene handles opponents at the point of attack while also displaying a lot of skill blocking in motion." Pauline grades the fourth-year junior as a Round 5 prospect heading into the season. The 6-foot-4, 315-pounder is listed as the starting right guard heading into the 2014 season.

San Diego State redshirt senior WR Ezell Ruffin "is a solid receiver who could move up draft boards if he hits his stride," according to Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"He’s dependable, deceptively fast and wins out for contested balls," Pauline wrote. "He grades as a last day pick entering the season but could end up top 120 next April with a big year and good pre-draft workouts." The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Ruffin is athletic, fast and owns a sticky pair of mitts. Ruffin led the Aztecs with 68 catches and 1,136 yards (16.7 avg.), and tied for second with three receiving touchdowns.

San Diego State redshirt senior LB Jake Fely has been granted a sixth-year waiver request by the NCAA.

This is Fely's second medical redshirt; he also received one in 2010 after he missed all but the first three contests with a lacerated liver. Fely suffered a broken foot in Game Four last year, ending his season prematurely again. Fely started 30 straight games between those injuries. He's one of the Aztecs' best defenders, so this is good news for SDSU.

Former Utah redshirt junior RB Lucky Radley transferred to San Diego State.

Radley, who will walk-on, is eligible to play immediately, San Diego State head coach Rocky Long confirmed. Radley rushed for 284 yards and two touchdowns last season. Pac-12 coaches named him an honorable mention to the All-Pac-12 team.

Former Oregon redshirt sophomore QB Jake Rodrigues will transfer to San Diego State.

Aztec Sports Report reports Rodrigues, a former four-star recruit, has filled out the necessary paperwork and been approved by the school's complaince office. "[Quarterback coach Brian Sipe] talked about me just making plays and leading the team, putting our players in the right situation, being a leader, throwing the ball in the right place and being accurate," Rodrigues told the site last week. "They're really excited, I'm really excited and I can't wait to see what comes of this." Rodrigues will sit out the 2014 season and begin his Aztec eligibility in 2015 as a junior.

Former San Diego State and undrafted free agent RB Adam Muema has decided to end his football career and plans on pursuing combat sports.

Muema made headlines for leaving the Combine after saying God told him he would be selected by the Seattle Seahawks, which did not happen. A number of peculiar events followed. "I don't like being a slave to money or coaches," Adam Muema said Tuesday, per Joe Schad. "I prefer an individual sport." Muema left the Aztecs before his eligibility was over. He will apparently begin boxing or train MMA.

Seahawks selected San Diego State S Eric Pinkins with the No. 208 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Pinkins (6-foot-3 3/4, 220) ran a 4.44 forty at the Aztecs' Pro Day and posted an impressive 39.5-inch vertical and 10-foot-9 broad jump. He's a big hitter who finished second on the team with 75 tackles, including seven for loss. Pinkins will try and earn a spot as a special teams contributor.
May 10 - 5:11 PM

Giants selected San Diego State S Nat Berhe with the No. 152 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Berhe (5-foot-10 1/2, 193) was a 41-game starter for the Aztecs, leading the team in tackles as a senior (94) and three times earning All-Mountain West recognition. He played a linebacker-safety hybrid position for SDSU. Berhe was a solid college starter, but is speed (4.71) and size deficient for an NFL safety. He'll likely have to earn his keep on special teams.

San Diego State RB Adam Muema didn't work out at San Diego State's pro day on Thursday.

Muema's name was on a list distributed to scouts that specified which players might attend, but even Aztecs coach Rocky Long didn't know if he would perform for evaluators before the exhibition. "He’s on the list, but whether he will be here or not, I have no idea," Long said. Muema rushed for 1,244 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2013, but since then his story has turned downright bizarre: He declared for the NFL Draft on Twitter, then deleted the post, then officially declared. The NFL Draft Advisory Board projected him as a third-day pick (fourth to seventh round). He unexpectedly left the NFL Combine before working out, citing religious reasons, saying God told him he would be a Seattle Seahawk if he skipped workouts. He spent three days in the airport after God told him to stay there and "not do anything." A little over a week ago, he tweeted that he was retiring from football. Whether he meant that or not, he's guaranteed his fate over the last few months.

Former San Diego State RB Adam Muema tweeted he is done playing football.

"I will NOT be playing FOOTBALL!" Muema posted, along with a screenshot of a conversation he had with "Angelus Domini." The running back has had a bizarre draft process, including leaving the Combine and living in the airport for a few days after citing religious beliefs as reason. He will not be drafted.
