SDSU Football Signs Transfer Derek Largent
June 14, 2012
SAN DIEGO - San Diego State head football coach Rocky Long recently announced the addition of junior college transfer Derek Largent to the team's roster. The 6-foot-4, 235-pound outside linebacker joins the Aztecs after playing one year at El Camino Community College in Torrance, Calif., and he will have three years of eligibility remaining.
In his lone year at El Camino C.C., Largent helped lead the Warriors to an 8-2 regular-season mark and a first-round playoff berth. The Northern Conference all-defensive first-team selection finished second on the team with 65 tackles and also tallied 7.5 tackles-for-loss, 1.5 sacks and two fumble recoveries.
Largent played his prep career in Manhattan Beach, Calif., at Mira Costa High School. During his senior year, the Hermosa Beach, Calif., native made 44 tackles along with an interception en route to being named the Bay League's Defensive Player of the Year after a season that saw the Mustang's give up just under 12 points per game. Largent was also instrumental in the Mira Costa's offense, averaging 24.5 yards per reception as well as recording a team-high three touchdown receptions as a tight end.
San Diego State gets its 2012 season underway with a contest against Washington at 7:30 p.m. PT on Saturday, Sept. 1 at CenturyLink Field in Seattle.
