Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw defensive end Nicholas Alexander will be taking his talent to the Blue Turf.
Alexander took an official visit to Boise State over the weekend, and on Sunday, he received an offer from the Broncos coaching staff.
It didn’t take him long to accept the offer, as Alexander committed to the Broncos.
According to his mother, Alexander committed on the spot.
“Nicholas was so overwhelmed that he asked Coach (Chris) Peterson, coach I will be a Bronco if you would take me,” said Cinder Eller, his mother.
And Peterson did in fact take him, and the Broncos are getting one of the fastest rising pass-rushers in California.
“Coach Peterson and his staff welcomed Nicholas as a member of the Bronco family,” said Eller.
Alexander had an offer from Washington State prior to the trip, but the visit to Boise sealed the deal for him.
“Nicholas was so overwhelmed by the coaching staff, school campus and the family atmosphere,” said Eller.
In Alexander, Boise State also gets a player with tremendous bloodlines, as his grandfather is NFL Hall of Fame defensive lineman Carl Eller.
Academically, Alexander has a 3.2 GPA and scored an 1160 on the SAT.
