Tom Riley, an all-league linebacker from St. Paul High in Santa Fe Springs, will attend San Diego State this fall.

But because he lacks the number of core classes under the NCAA’s Proposition 48 guidelines, he will not be allowed to play or practice with the Aztecs this season and will lose a year of eligibility.

It was announced Thursday that George Tuioti, an All-Orange County linebacker from Santa Ana, would follow the same course.


Riley, 6-feet 2-inches and 230 pounds, played linebacker and fullback for St. Paul in the division 5-A Angelus League.
