Boise State signed yet another outstanding class just a few week ago as the coaching staff fought hard to secure the 18 verbal commitments that signed on the dotted line on February 1st. The new Broncos will arrive in Boise this summer and they come from coast to coast and everywhere in between. So, how was Signing Day for the new Broncos?
Steven Baggett (OL) (Arlington, TX) - "It was just real special since you realize that all the hard work has paid off. In the past, we've had a signing celebration at the school, but we did it this year at a community center with all the Arlington area schools. It was special to share that moment with family and friends. More than anything, I was just happy to get it on paper and be done with the recruiting process."
Jack Fields (RB) (El Paso, TX) - "It was a great experience. It was awesome to make it official and become a Boise State Bronco. We kept it really low-key. Me and my family just went out to a steakhouse and had a good dinner."
Sean Wale (K) (La Habra, CA) - "It was kind of a relief for me since recruiting had become so stressful. We did a little ceremony at school. Total, we had four signing with three being football players. We had family and friends that came to the event. We took a lot of pictures too. I'm just excited now and I can't wait to get up there."
Chaz Anderson (CB) (Los Angeles, CA) - "I woke up that morning and signed my letter with my mom. I wanted it to be special since she's the most influential person in my life. It was just nice to finally fax that letter in. We didn't do anything at school, but people came up and congratulated me all day. We had a signing party that night with a few other guys that signed with different schools. I feel like it's a weight off my shoulders and now I'm hard at work in the weight room. I plan to work harder than ever now."
Donte Deayon (CB) (Fontana, CA) - "I had never experienced anything like that before. I faxed in my letter that morning, went to breakfast, went to school, had a little ceremony, and we took a lot of pictures. All of our family and friends were there. It was really a lot of fun."
Christopher Santini (ATH) (San Jose, CA) - "We had eight people signing from our school. We had a ceremony with the principal, newspaper came and took some pictures, and it was just an overall fun day."
D.J. Dean (ATH) (Boise, ID) - "We had a ceremony with all the different kids from soccer to basketball. It was held in the auditorium, the media came, and it was just fun to be around friends and family. I got asked a lot of questions since I was the only kid from Idaho signing with Boise State. Everyone kept asking me how it felt to get a full ride scholarship from Boise State. It's a credit to all of the coaches that have coached me over the years."
Sam McCaskill (DE) (Eugene, OR) - "It was just so awesome to get that down on paper. We had a big ceremony at school and parents showed up, media, supporters, news stations, and everything. It was a dream come true and a great day overall."
