Shipley Looks Ahead To Weekend Visit
"Coach Prince asked me a few days ago if I'd like to go on an official visit," he said. "I told him I would like that and then the next day they decided to go ahead and offer," he added.
"Coach Smith came by today for a visit," he stated. "I had a lot of questions about Boise State and learned a lot about how they run their program. He believes Coach Petersen can fit you in with his program very well."
"I'm really looking forward to the visit," said Shipley. "I've liked Boise State since I was a little kid and have heard nothing but great things about them."
It's all about finding the right "fit" for Shipley.
"It's really about seeing if the program is a better fit for me than BYU," he said. "It's all about finding that right feel in a school. I know my family also likes Boise State a lot since we've known some people that have gone there."
"I know Coach Petersen is one of the best, if not the best, coaches in the business," said Shipley. "He knows how to recruit good players that are good on and off the field. I know he recruits good people at Boise State. I like that."
The talented WR went on to say that he's looking to make a verbal commitment on either Sunday or Monday.
"I'm going to come back on Sunday night, talk it over with my family, and then commit that night or on Monday," he said. "It'll be exciting to know exactly where I'm going for college. The process has been fun and I've enjoyed it, but I'm excited to make that commitment official."
