Boise State signed a total of nineteen new recruits in the 2011 recruiting class and there might be…
Corral Conversations: Jimmy Laughrea
"They're going really well," he said. "I'm just doing the workout plan and learning the shifts, formations, and stuff like that. I've got it all written down in a notebook and I study it for a couple hours each night. Right now, I know all the formations and most of the shifts. The hardest part will be learning the plays because it's difficult to just memorize these things without being able to practice it."
"I was up there for the Spring Game," he stated. "It was fun to see all the kids and be able to hangout with them. I think the biggest difference from HS to college is just the size and speed. That's what really stood out to me. I was watching Holden (Huff) out there and he seems to know everything, but he has to adjust to the speed of the game. That has to be the biggest difference."
"I actually spoke to Coach Pease a little over a week ago. He'll be at my school next week," said Laughrea. "In terms of the offense, I think it'll remain the same. He and Coach Harsin are both great coaches and they might do a few tiny things differently, but it'll remain mostly the same."
The future Bronco says being able to learn from Kellen Moore will be extremely beneficial to his development as a QB.
"Learning from Kellen is going to be huge for me. That's really what I'm looking forward to most," he said. "That'll really pay-off for me when I'm competing for a spot the following year. Learning from Kellen will help me take that as far as I possibly can."
"I'll redshirt," he said. "I'm just looking forward to getting as many reps as I can. It'll allow me to get a feel for the game and the guys around me."
Laughrea (6'2, 200) was a three year starter at QB for the Rocklin Thunder. He says the thing he'll take from his HS career is the knowledge of what it takes to make consistent progress at the QB position. Simply put, he learned how to get better from year to year.
"As a sophomore, I had a lot to learn," said Laughrea. "I kept making progress and I felt real comfortable by the time I was a senior. You know, I'm not going to be as smart as Kellen or as athletic as some of the other guys, but I can learn from all of them. That's how you get to be a better QB."
So far, it looks like many of the 2011 signees will be enrolling in the Bridge Program at Boise State.
"I'll be up there on June 26th. I'm doing the Bridge Program," he said. "I'd say I'm excited and nervous. Going to school and everything will be a big change, but I'm looking forward to it."
