Rocklin HS QB Jimmy Laughrea (Rocklin, CA) committed to Boise State just a little over a week ago and he's already looking to the future as he hopes to spread the word about Boise State and what the program is looking to accomplish. Laughrea will be making another trip to Boise this weekend as he will participate in the annual Boise State Football Camp on The Blue. "I'm going up there on Friday for the camp," he said. "I plan on recruiting other kids while I'm at the camp. I'm going to tell them what's great about Boise State," he added.

The future Bronco wants to learn as much as he can while at the camp and is looking forward to spending some one-on-one time with Offensive Coordinator Bryan Harsin. "I should get a lot of one-on-one time with Coach Harsin," he said. "I'm going to work on some drills, film study, and stuff like that. I just want to learn as much as I can. I can't wait to get back up there."

Jimmy received the offer from Boise State on May 27th and was on campus just a day later to checkout the program. "Coach Harsin offered me on Thursday," he stated. "We flew down and spent Friday and Saturday there. We saw the football offices, met the coaches, got the school tour, had lunch with the coaches, and then me and my dad toured the town."

Laughrea (6'2, 187, 4.76) thought about committing while on the visit, but Head Coach Chris Petersen told him to go home and think about it. "I called the next day and committed," he said. "First, I called Coach Harsin and then I called Coach Petersen. I loved everything on the visit. For me, it's just awesome. I can learn a lot from Kellen (Moore) and compete my freshman year after redshirting. I'm hoping he can teach me how to breakdown film and stuff." Jimmy also held offers from Washington State, San Jose State, Wyoming, Utah State, and Sacramento State.

Last season, Laughrea and his teammates at Rocklin finished with a 14-1 record. The standout QB just wants to win and have a successful senior season. "I don't care about my stats as long as we win," he said. "We have a really tough league. I'm hoping we can make the playoffs and then see how we do. It should be a lot of fun," he added.

In 2009, Laughrea threw for 2,635 yards and 22 TDs. He also rushed for 383 yards and 6 TDs. He sees himself as a QB that looks to pass first, but can also run if needed. "I think I'm better at passing. My release has gotten a lot better," he stated. "I can definitely run the ball if needed. I'm working on improving my speed."
