Concord WR Galindo commits to UC Davis

Concord High WR Corey Galindo sent in his official letter of intent to UC Davis today, allowing the rangy wideout to continue his career as an Aggie.

Galindo, who at 6-foot-4 offers outstanding size for the receiver position, accepted the first official offer he received. He had discussions with several other schools, but decided to go with Davis when it offered.

“It was just a great campus. The academics are crazy,” Galindo said. “Academically it makes great sense.”

Galindo was one of the top receivers in the East Bay this season, hauling in 45 passes for 732 yards and 14 touchdowns. He was also the top scorer in the DVAL, ending the regular season with 104 points (he tied teammate Alec Pica for the league lead).

Galindo is the second member of the 2009 Minutemen to sign a letter of intent, joining San Jose State-bound Forrest Hightower. The Aggies and Spartans will square off this year, meeting on Oct. 2 in San Jose.
