Nathan Mensah, the 6-foot-10 power forward from Findlay (NV) Prep, announced his commitment to San Diego State and head coach Brian Dutcher on Wednesday via Twitter.

Originally from Ghana, Mensah recently moved from Prolific (CA) Prep to Findlay Prep. He’s close friends but not related to Joel Mensah, the 6-foot-10 power forward, also from Ghana, who committed to the Aztecs in August for the 2018 class.

“It feels great to have Joel there,” Nathan told the San Diego Union-Tribune on Wednesday. “We play well together. We know each other’s strengths and weaknesses. I know where and to get him the ball, and he knows where and how to get me the ball.”

Both Joel and Nathan, in addition to shooting guard Jordan Campbell, give the Aztecs the No. 40 recruiting class in 2018 and No. 1 in the Mountain West per 247Sports.

According to 247Sports, Mensah is ranked as the No. 224 overall player in the Class of 2018 and the No. 21 player from the state of California. He chose SDSU over schools such as Oregon, Oregon State, USC and Texas Tech.

Mensah’s commitment helps the Aztecs keep up with their Mountain West rivals, the Boise State Broncos, who landed 2018 forward Riley Abercrombie this past weekend.

Dutcher enters his first season as SDSU head coach this year following the retirement of former SDSU head coach Steve Fisher after 18 seasons with the Aztecs. Dutcher was Fisher’s longtime assistant and “head coach in waiting” since 2011.
