Boise State has dipped back into the deep well in Texas for another skill player, this time a league…
Boise State Lands Texas Speedster
"I committed to Boise State on Tuesday," he said. "Well, it had a lot to do with the offense they run. I think I'll fit in well with their offense. They throw the ball around 70% of the time and I really liked the coaching staff too."
"I'd say Coach Choate and Coach Petersen recruited me. I spoke to both of them a lot," said Rhodes. "They seemed to always have the right answers to the different questions I had. As for Coach Pete, he's just a great guy, really energetic."
"Coach Petersen just has so much energy," he stated. "He told me he was jumping up and down when I committed. You know, that's the energy again."
The future Bronco says he's a solid commit, but hasn't visited the campus yet. When does he plan to visit The Blue?
"I'm going to wait and take an official visit," he said. "I know I'll be coming up on the 24th of September for the Toledo game. I'll just be making sure it's a comfortable place for me and a place I can see myself for the next five years. That's all I need."
The talented ATH can play RB and WR. Which position will he focus on at Boise State?
"I'll be mostly an inside receiver," he said. "The coaching staff told me they want to get me the ball in a lot of different ways. I can play WR, RB, return kicks, punts, just everything."
"I think I use my size to my advantage," said Rhodes. "They (DBs) might be taller, but I'm faster than everybody. If I was taller, I think I'd have a lot more offers, but that's what I like about Boise State."
The Klein Collins Tigers have started fast and finished with a thud in each of the last two years. They won their first ten games in each of the last two seasons, but were also sent home early in the playoffs each year. Rhodes says they hope to advance further in the state playoffs in 2011.
"I'm hoping we can start out 10-0 for the third year in a row, but go further in the playoffs this year," he said. "As for me, I'm just looking to improve on everything. I'll sacrifice my stats for this team to make it further in the playoffs."
What does Shane Rhodes (5'7, 160, 4.4) bring to the gridiron?
"I'm an athlete," he said. "Basically, you name it and I can do it," he added.
As a junior, Rhodes had 604 rushing yards and 11 TDs on the ground at RB. As a WR, he had 43 receptions for 877 yards and 9 TDs.
He chose Boise State over offers from Kansas State and Louisiana-Lafayette.
