With just shy of four football seasons’ worth of tackle football experience under his belt, St. Francis High senior Travis Talianko has already assured himself the opportunity of four more years of football.
On Wednesday morning, the Golden Knights receiver and safety verbally committed to play football at San Jose State University.
“They’re the only team that’s been straight up with me, they’ve been the most realistic,” Talianko said. “I really like what they’re doing, they’re building something.”
A 6-foot-1, 200-pound prospect, Talianko said he also drew interest from Arizona State, UCLA, Nevada and San Diego State, among others. But, along with its honest approach, San Jose State also brought an urgency to the table that appealed to Talianko.
