Cosumnes Oaks HS CB Marcus Rios (Elk Grove, CA) was in Boise just a little over two weeks ago for the annual football camp at Bronco Stadium and was presented with his first opportunity to work one-on-one with the Boise State coaching staff. So, how did it go?

"It was a great experience," he said. "This was the first trip to Boise for my dad so that made it extra special. He got to see everything and meet all the coaches. I got to meet a lot of the new recruits and also got a lot of one-on-one time with Coach Petersen. We talked about my plans for the future and graduating early."

"I'm going to graduate early," he stated. "I got to talk to Coach Petersen about it and he told me about the schedule, dorms, and all of that. I also spoke to an academic advisor so everything is set. You know, the more I'm around Coach Petersen the more comfortable I get. He said he's looking forward to me coming in and making an impact."

"I spent a lot of time out on the field with Coach Yates," said Rios. "He told me about the techniques and I already knew a lot of them, so that was good. He has a great coaching style and I like him. I think I'll fit in real well."

The talented CB says the camp did nothing but reinforce his decision to become a Bronco. He's 100% committed to Boise State.

"Oh yeah," he said. "I'm 100% committed," he added.

Marcus Rios and (2011 signee) Robert Ash were practically best friends growing up and it's safe to say that they're looking forward to playing together once again at Boise State.

"Robert just left to go up there. He said he's going to work his butt off up there and told me to do the same," he said. "It's going to be a great opportunity for us. It's a dream come true to be able to play with a HS teammate that you're close to and we're going to dominate together."

The future Bronco will continue to work hard all summer as he prepares for his senior season.

"I'm doing summer workouts and everything," he said. "I'm doing a lot of cardio, DB techniques and drills, and just training every day in the weight room," he added.

As a junior, Rios (6'0, 175, 4.43) racked up 47 tackles and had 1 INT.
