Wide receiver J.R. Justice announced Monday he has committed to the San Diego State Aztecs:

The San Diego native is the No. 73 wideout in the 2018 recruiting class and ranks 18th at the position in the state of California, according to Scout

Justice had 46 receptions for 932 yards and 12 touchdowns as a junior for St. Augustine High School, per MaxPreps. Scout's Greg Biggins provided a brief scouting report for the 6'3", 200-pound pass-catcher:

Securing Justice's commitment is a big coup for San Diego State, which has just three recruits committed to its 2018 class so far. Scout ranks the Aztecs 78th nationally, a year after they finished 70th.

San Diego hasn't finished with a losing record under head coach Rocky Long, and the team went 11-3 in both 2015 and 2016. Getting recruits of Justice's caliber will help the Aztecs maintain that level of success and potentially become the best Group of Five team in FBS.

And practically speaking, wide receivers Mikah Holder and Quest Truxton and tight end David Wells will graduate after the 2017 season, leaving San Diego State down three of its best receiving options for 2018.

Justice could make an immediate impact when he arrives for the Aztecs next year.
