  Chevan Cordeiro is set to succeed Nick Starkel, who led the Spartans to an undefeated regular season in 2020 and was a steady presence under center for two years. Nick Nash, now a senior, started last season when Starkel missed time with an arm injury, but the job this year is Cordeiro's to lose. The newcomer from Hawaii may not have the effortless arm talent Starkel displayed, but his athleticism and quickness will bring another dimension to coach Brent Brennan's offense. "Whatever a player's skill set is, you're going to apply that to what you're cooking," Brennan said. "He brings a fun and exciting skill set with his ability to throw, and when you combine that with his ability to move, you have something special." The fifth-year newcomer brings that unpredictability on the ground, but he insisted he is a passer who can drive the ball downfield and run an offense.

"I'm a playmaker," Cordeiro said. "This summer I worked on my throwing mechanics so I can be more accurate, and spent a lot of time working on my pre-snap reads." In four seasons with the Rainbow Warriors, Cordeiro threw for 6,167 yards and 45 touchdowns against 22 interceptions, with the vast majority of that production coming over the past two seasons as the team's primary starter. He also has chipped in 1,083 yards and 13 scores on the ground. - San Jose Mercury News

  Cordeiro said he was familiar with San Jose State after four seasons of competing against the Mountain West rival. "I knew Coach (Brent) Brennan," Cordeiro said. "He's a fun coach, a player's coach. Just the teammates, the culture, the family. That's why I made the choice. That's what made the transition so easy. That's why I picked them." Cordeiro said several relatives live in Nevada. "They come down and spend some time," he said. "My mom came down and helped me move in. In the beginning, it was hard. Of course, I missed home. But my roommates are fun to hang out with." The transfer portal comes with a 14-day grace period, beginning with the first organized workout with the new team, for a player to return to his previous school. But Cordeiro said he never considered returning to UH. "From the very first day I was committed to San Jose State," Cordeiro said. "I wasn't going to change it, no matter what, no matter what Hawaii was going to offer me. Nothing was going to change the fact I was going to stick with San Jose. I bought in."

Brennan said SJSU offers Cordeiro the blend of opportunity and challenge. Cordeiro agreed, saying, "I didn't want to go to a team that I was handed a starting job without working for it. I wanted to battle. I think (quarterback Nick) Nash got me better. I got him better. Even the other quarterbacks in the room. I like the quarterback room. It's one big family. We all love each other. We're all getting better." Cordeiro said he spends a great deal of time at the Spartans' football complex, where he participates in weight-training and studies football videos. He said he shops at Costco for white rice. He has adjusted to NorCal's freeways. And, he said emphatically, "I'm having fun now. I found the love of the game again...Everything has been good." - Honolulu Advertiser

  The loss of star tight end Derrick Deese Jr. will undoubtedly hurt, but the Spartans' depth at receiver inspires optimism that their aerial attack will look more like it did in 2019 and 2020 - when they ranked first and third in the league, respectively, in passing offense. They return their top four wide-outs from last season, and also add experience with the arrival of Elijah Cooks, who hauled in 115 catches for 1,478 yards and 18 touchdowns in five years at Nevada. - Wyoming Tribune Eagle
