Walk-on wide receiver Jeese Matthews earns scholarship

Redshirt freshman wide receiver Jesse Matthews runs upfield during the Aztecs' 23-14 win over UCLA on Sept. 7 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

Coming into Fall Camp, redshirt freshman wide receiver Jesse Matthews was listed fourth on the depth chart for San Diego State football’s wide receiver ‘Z’ position.

This came after being named the team’s Offensive Scout Player of the Year in 2018 as a redshirt who walked on to the program.

A year later, Matthews had a good camp and earned himself playing time in the Aztecs’ first game of the season, breaking out to lead the team in receiving.
