Myke Tavarres Dishes On Boise State Visit
"It can go either way," he said. "I've got Coach Petersen coming for a visit on Wednesday and then Coach Bielema will be here on Thursday. I'll have a good idea of where things stand on Friday."
"The visit to Boise State had everything I was looking for," he stated. "I spent a lot of time with the players and what I really liked is how we all clicked. It was a real relaxed atmosphere. Everyone gets along well up there. I liked that a lot."
"Coach Gregory picked me up," said Tavarres. "Right away I thought that was really cool. The way he looks at everything is really defined. He has a great attention to detail. He puts his plan into motion and that makes you a better football player. He can take an average player and make him extraordinary."
Tavarres also liked how Head Coach Chris Petersen stressed the value of academics.
"Coach Petersen is all about academics," he said. "I think that shows how involved he is with his players. Many coaches are there to win games and could care less if their players do well in the classroom. Coach Petersen wants you to be a better person, a better man, and a better football player. They have something like 50 kids or so with a 3.0 GPA. It's rare to see a coach as academically oriented as he is."
"He strives for excellence," said Tavarres. "There's no other way to describe it. He's all about excellence on the field and off the field as well. It's about much more than football with Coach Petersen."
So, where does Boise State now stand following his official visit to The Blue?
"I loved everything about my visit to Boise State," he said. "The players were great, the coaches were fantastic, and the atmosphere was everything I've been wanting. I need to sit down with both coaches this week and figure out exactly where things stand. I'm blessed to have an opportunity like this."
"I'm looking to get to know both coaches as people," he said. "It'll come down to how comfortable I feel around each of them," he added.
