JC TE Lands Late Offer From Broncos
"It was a no-brainer for me," he said. "San Diego has good coaches and a good program, but Boise State is where I always wanted to go," he added.
"Coach Strausser recruited me," he stated. "What stood out to me about him and all the coaches there is just how they told it like it is. In the beginning, he said they had no money for me, but I was welcome to walk-on. I like knowing that ahead of time. He said a spot could open up depending on what happens, so I kept hoping that one would."
"I've spoken to Coach Pete a few times too," said Peters. "He's real personable. As a whole, Boise State is more personable than other schools. Obviously, they get stuff done and win a lot of games, but he seemed like a real cool guy. He talked to me like I was a regular person."
Peters will play TE at Boise State and will be reunited with HS teammate, Blake Renaud.
"I'm excited to play with Blake," he said. "De La Salle is such a great place. It made me who I am today. To play with someone I shared that experience with is pretty exciting."
"I knew Blake was going there out of HS and I knew I wanted to go there too," said Peters. "He came back and told me more about it. I even thought about taking the walk-on offer if that was all I could get. He said the coaches treat the walk-ons just the same as the others. That's what really made me want to go there."
Peters says he's a "work in progress" when it comes to developing into a pass catching TE, but his blocking skills are excellent.
"I like my blocking a lot right now," he said. "I'm working on the receiving too. Blocking is my big thing, though."
"I think my HS experience made me a better blocker," he stated. "They worked with us on the technique and the nastiness. It all comes from De La Salle."
Connor (6'4, 245) will have four years to play three at Boise State. Going in, his main goal was to earn a scholarship after a year in junior college.
"I knew I had to be out this year," said Peters. "That was my whole goal. I wanted to be a one and done."
So, what can Bronco fans expect to see from Connor Peters?
"A guy that will work hard," he said. "I'm ready to get to work," he added.
In 2011, he had 13 receptions for 156 yards.
He chose Boise State over offers from San Diego State, Colorado State, Memphis, Fresno State, and Sacramento State.
