College Football News Preview 2020: Top San Jose State Spartans Players
Best San Jose State Spartans Offensive Player
WR Tre Walker, Sr.
The 5-11, 180-pound senior averaged over 18 yards per catch with five scores as a sophomore, and last year he became more of a volume target with a team-high 79 grabs for 1,161 yards and two scores in just ten games as a First Team All-Mountain West performer.
He and sophomore Isaiah Hamilton form a dangerous 1-2 punch that should make the new starting quarterback’s life a whole lot easier. He’ll hit a few big plays, but he’ll do even more as a reliable receiver who’ll come up with double-digit grabs now and then.

Best San Jose State Spartans Defensive Player
S Jay Lenard, Sr.
The 6-1, 207-pound veteran led the team with solo stops – 68 – and is the leading returning hitter coming off a 95-tackle season. An all-star, he has great range, can get behind the line, and he made two picks.
As part of a nice secondary that should be one of the team’s biggest strengths, he should once again be one of the league’s best all-around playmakers.
