Boise State has received word that Mat Boesen, a tight end from Torrance, California, has committed to play football for the Broncos. The word we are getting is that Boesen was recruited as a linebacker. With 6-4, 220 size, he should work out there very nicely.
Boesen had 50 tackles last season and caught 31 passes for 419 yards and three touchdowns on offense. As a defensive end, Mat reads, shreds, and attacks the ball carrier. He has a great motor and good instincts. Boise State's defense is becoming known for swarming to the ball and Boesen is right up that alley.
Boesen is already recruit #8 and we are still two months from the start of next football season. Because of the large number of graduates from Boise State last year, the 2013 recruiting class will be large--at least 20 and probably approaching 30.
Boesen chose Boise State over an offer from San Diego State and interest from Washington, UCLA, Arizona State, USC, Texas, Oregon, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Nebraska, Michigan, Missouri, Houston and Florida State.
