Loyola HS CB Chaz Anderson (Los Angeles, CA) verbally committed to Boise State last summer and remains 100% committed even with the departure of longtime DBs Coach Marcel Yates. The talented CB has been assured that he'll be in "good hands" once the new hire is announced.

"The coaching staff has kept in contact with me," he said. "They told me I'd be in good hands. Out of respect, Coach Yates called me, explained the deal, and said I'd be in good hands with Coach Petersen and the new DBs Coach."

"That showed me he (Yates) has a lot of respect for Coach Petersen," he said. "That kind of helped me reaffirm my commitment," he added.

"I spoke to Coach Bhonapha two days ago," he stated. "He was just checking in, explaining the situation, and we set-up a time for the in-home visit."

Head Coach Chris Petersen and RBs Coach Keith Bhonapha will be down in LA for an in-home visit on Thursday evening.

"Coach Petersen and Coach Bhonapha are coming to my house on Thursday," he said. "I'm really excited for that," he added.

"He said we'll talk about the coaches leaving, where they plan to go from here, the summer bridge program, and what he expects of me."

Anderson already has some close Boise State ties with his cousin (Bryan Douglas) being a current Bronco and (former teammate) Lee Hightower being one of the "surprise" contributors for the 2011 season.

"I was really hyped and excited for both Bryan and Lee," said Anderson. "It makes me excited to get up there so I can contribute too."

"I talk to Bryan about every other day," he said. "He said they really care about the players up there and he loves it."

Anderson (6'0, 174) played in the Cal State All-Star Game back in December and had quite a "run in" with a future teammate during the game. On a botched FG attempt, Christopher Santini got the pitch from the FG kicker and broke Anderson's tackle on his way to the endzone.

"I was waiting for that," he said with a laugh. "I didn't realize how big he was out there. I tried to make a routine tackle, he broke it, dove into the endzone, and then did a back-flip."

"I'm happy we'll be on the same side of the ball."

The future Bronco says he had a "mediocre" senior season and plans to use that as motivation during the off-season.

"Personally, I think I had a mediocre season," he said. "I didn't contribute as much as I thought I could. I plan to use that as motivation...a chip on my shoulder."

"I'm just real excited to get up there," he said. "That defense will be a wonderful system for me," he added.

As a senior, Anderson had 14 receptions for 356 yards at WR. At CB, he had 22 tackles and 13 pass deflections.
