Rocklin HS QB Jimmy Laughrea (Rocklin, CA) committed to the Broncos very early in the process and got the ball rolling for Boise State in the 2011 recruiting class. He had an in-home visit with the Bronco coaching staff just a couple weeks ago as Head Coach Chris Petersen and his staff were on the road putting the finishing touches on the 2011 recruiting class.

"Coach Petersen and Coach Choate came down about two weeks ago," he said. "It was real good. They basically just laid out what their plan is and everything. They gave a little preview of what to expect. It was cool to have them in my house."

Bryan Harsin left Boise State earlier this month to become the Offensive Coordinator at Texas. Boise State didn't have to look far for a replacement as Brent Pease returned to Boise after being on the job at Indiana for just a couple weeks. The future Bronco signal-caller says the system on offense will remain the same and he's looking forward to working with Coach Pease.

"Coach Pease came down last Monday," Laughrea said. "It was a good experience. He has always been a part of the program, so it'll be the same thing. I'm not worried about anything since I know he's familiar with everything. He told me he knows the deal and that he's going to focus more on mechanics, but he won't make changes or anything."

The Rocklin Thunder finished the 2010 season with a 7-4 record. A closer look at the schedule shows that their average margin of defeat in those four losses was only five points. Looking back, it was a season of ups and downs for Laughrea (6'2, 195) and his teammates.

"We didn't have the same talent as last year with all the key losses," he stated. "We still performed as good as many of the teams in the area and could've won a few more games with a few breaks here and there. The season could've been really different if we could've made just a few more plays."

The talented QB is looking forward to Signing Day and says it'll be one of the biggest days of his life.

"I'm excited about Signing Day," he said. "It'll probably be one of the top things I ever do in my life. We have a few other guys in other sports that are expected to sign, so we'll be doing it at around 7 am at school," he added.

As a senior, Laughrea finished the season with 2,527 yards passing and 22 TDs. He also rushed for 327 yards and 6 TDs.
