Broncos Land Georgia Gunslinger
Despite landing Tommy Smith out of Atlanta last season, Georgia hasn't been a big recruiting ground for Boise State. So how did the Bronco coaches find him? "Our coaches do a great job of sending highlight tapes out," he said. "That's how I started receiving interest."
Tamburo (6'2, 195) and his dad were in Boise for an official visit over the weekend and they came away impressed. "We got there right before the game," he said. "We watched the game and talked to some of the players. We took a tour of the area on Sunday," he added.
Mikey thinks Boise State is the perfect fit for him. "The coaches and the offense seemed like a really good fit for me," he said. "I really liked the players and coaches. They are great athletes and they all love football."
The coaches at Boise State have been a hot topic for the 2009 commitments and it's no different for Mikey Tamburo. "Coach Harsin recruited me," he said. "What really won me over was the highlight video he made of me. It was great." What did Tamburo think of his meeting with Chris Petersen? "Coach Pete is the nicest head coach that I have met," he said. "He just seems like a regular guy. His success at Boise State was another reason I committed," he added.
The city of Boise also impressed him. "I thought Boise was awesome," he said. "I'm an outdoor person and I was excited to see the lake and mountains right there."
Tamburo plans on keeping in contact with the coaches at Boise State. "They told me they'd call me each week," he said.
North Gwinnett HS has had a good season and Tamburo is hoping to lead them to more victories. "We're 8-2," he said. "We lost 19-7 last week to Peachtree Ridge." Mistakes cost them the game. "Penalties and the rain really slowed us down," he said. "We didn't execute."
Brookwood HS is up next for North Gwinnett. "We have to execute this week," he said. "They won the state championship a few years ago. We can't make the little mistakes. We have to come out clicking."
Tamburo brings a new element to the Bronco offense. The coaches were in search of a mobile QB in the 2009 class and that's exactly what they got when Mikey Tamburo committed. The spread offense has become popular over the past couple of years and it appears that the Boise State coaches want to add that package to the current Bronco offense.
BroncoCountry.com will have updates on Mikey Tamburo throughout his senior season.
