  07/15/21 - Nick StarkelrSr/2022, San Jose State, 6-2, 214 (DS#24 QB) + More +

  Nick Starkel began his collegiate career at Arkansas (and then Texas A&M) before arriving in San Jose last year. All the Texas native did in his first season as the Spartans' signal caller was operate an offense that scored nearly 30 points a game and averaged 298.4 passing yards, good for 19th nationally. Starkel completed 64.2% of his passes with 17 touchdown tosses against just seven interceptions. - Casper Star-Tribune

  On the first day collegiate athletes were allowed to earn money off their name, image and likeness, San Jose State quarterback Nick Starkel had a piece of advice for his teammates: don't lend it out to just anyone - and maybe not at all. "If you're missing practice for a photoshoot because you got a deal with a brand you're working on, I will rip you a new one," Starkel said in a social media video Thursday. "In the end, it is America. It is a free country. Do what you desire. But a PSA to my teammates … I do not expect you to let it distract you. If it does, we're gonna have a serious problem."

Starkel, a senior who passed for 2,174 yards and 17 touchdowns last season, posted a series of videos to Instagram in response to the new law of the land beginning Thursday. Facing laws in six states set to take effect this month, the NCAA agreed to change its so-called NIL rules, paving the way for a new potential source of income for amateur athletes, who had previously been barred by the NCAA of receiving any compensation. Starkel, however, said the NIL deals are unlikely to benefit everyone. "Everybody's acting like everyone out here is gonna get a shoe brand deal or something," Starkel said. "Name one offensive lineman in the NFL that has his own shoe deal. It doesn't happen. Not everyone's gonna get it. It's the best players at the best schools." - San Jose Mercury News

  01/15/21 - Trevon SidneyrSr/2022, San Jose State, 5-11, 180 (DS#999 WR) + More +

  Illinois football has lost another player to the transfer portal this offseason, with senior receiver Trevon Sidney deciding to move on from the Illini. Sidney joined the Illini in 2019 after spending three seasons at Southern California. He made a quick impact in Champaign-Urbana as a redshirt junior, hauling in 16 passes for 123 yards and a touchdown in five games. But the 5-foot-11, 180-pound Sidney missed that season's final eight games with an injury and did not play at all during the 2020 season because of an injury. - News Gazette Tribune

  01/10/21 - Tre WalkerSr/2021, San Jose State, 5-11, 178 (DS#61 WR) + More +

  Mississippi State football nearly landed an experienced player for coach Mike Leach's offense Friday, but an SEC bylaw got in the way. Former San Jose State wide receiver Tre Walker announced his intention to transfer to Mississippi State via the NCAA transfer portal. Hours later, he tweeted he will not be transferring to MSU after all because of a rule that prohibited him from enrolling. That rule is bylaw 14.5.5.6 in the SEC Bylaws and Commissioner Regulations handbook. It states an athlete transferring from one four-year institution to another must meet certain requirements. One is that the athlete must have two years of eligibility remaining unless he has already graduated. Walker does not have his degree from San Jose State and only has one year of eligibility remaining, so he is not eligible to enroll at Mississippi State or any other SEC institution. - The Clarion Ledger

  Mississippi State added another receiver to its already dynamic room. Tre Walker, a four-year standout at San Jose State, announced his intention to transfer to MSU for his final year of eligibility via Twitter on Friday. Walker helped the Trojans to a 7-1 record and the Mountain West title game this year. He finished his time at SJSU with 189 career catches for 2,790 yards -- both of which rank top-10 in program history. Walker, who will be on scholarship at MSU, becomes the fifth transfer to join MSU over the offseason. Other imports include quarterbacks Jack Abraham (Southern Mississippi), Chance Lovertich (South Alabama) and Jack Kristofek (Sam Houston State). The Bulldogs also added former Central Florida defensive end Randy Charlton. - The Dispatch

  San Jose State's rough week got even rougher with the news star wide receiver Tre Walker is transferring and wide receivers coach Kevin Cummings has been hired at Arizona. Walker, a two-time All-Mountain West Conference receiver who had nearly 200 catches and 3,000 yards in his four years at San Jose State, announced he'll play his fifth and final collegiate season elsewhere. That news seemed to catch Spartans quarterback Nick Starkel by surprise. Walker officially entered transfer over the weekend and it's not a stretch to believe he could be following his position coach, Cummings, to the University of Arizona. - San Jose Mercury News

  San Jose State's Matt Mercurio tied an FBS record for field goals made in a single quarter during the Mountain West Conference championship game. Mercurio made four second-quarter field goals, as he connected on kicks from 24, 36, 26 and 32 yards out. He became the fifth FBS player to make four field goals in one quarter. The last person to do it was Oregon State's Jose Cortez against California in 1998. - AP College Football

  While Clemson and Oklahoma have made conference titles an annual event, San Jose State and Ball State got to celebrate for the first time in decades this weekend. San Jose State's 34-20 victory over Boise State in the Mountain West Conference championship game gave the unbeaten Spartans their first league title since finishing the 1991 season as the Big West co-champions. They won the Big West outright in 1990. Ball State beat Buffalo 38-28 on Friday night for its first Mid-American Conference championship since 1996. San Jose State and Ball State will face off in the Arizona Bowl on Dec. 31. San Jose State is seeking to complete its first unbeaten season since a 13-0 finish in 1939. - AP College Football

  One more statistical note on San Jose State's milestone victory: Cade Hall recorded two sacks in that game to increase his season total to 10, putting him in a tie for the FBS lead in total sacks. The only other FBS player with a double-digit sack total this year is Tulane's Patrick Johnson, also with 10. - AP College Football

  12/19/20 - Nick StarkelrSr/2022, San Jose State, 6-2, 214 (DS#24 QB) + More +

  Nick Starkel completed 32 of 52 passes for 453 yards and three touchdowns to lead No. 25 San Jose State to its first Mountain West Conference championship, 34-20 over Boise State on Saturday. The Spartans (7-0) had lost all 14 previous meetings with the Broncos (5-2). Starkel broke former Fresno State star Derek Carr's title-game record of 404 yards passing set in 2013 in a victory over Utah State.

It was the fourth 400-yard passing game of Starkel's career, and second this season, his first with the Spartans. He spent the first three years of his college career at Texas A&M and Arkansas before transferring to San Jose State in January. Tre Walker and Derrick Deese Jr. each had seven receptions. Walker led all receivers with 137 yards. Boise State's Hank Bachmeier completed 20 of 40 pass attempts for 221 yards. San Jose State held the Broncos to a paltry 12 yards on 24 rushes. The Spartans scored on five of their seven first-half drives. - AP College Football
