San Diego State had its best local football recruiting campaign of the decade last year, signing five San Diego County high school players. It was expected, however, because Coach Denny Stolz emphasized recruiting local players. Doug Scovil, who coached the Aztecs from 1980 to 1985, preferred out-of-town players. Last year's number of local recruits is expected to be more than doubled when players begin signing letters of intent Wednesday.
