Kelowna (BC) Head Coach Roy Anderson confirmed Wednesday morning to Scout.com that Taylor Loffler, a 6-foot-4, 200-pound athlete that plays for the Owls, will continue playing football in college at Boise State University after verbally committing to them Tuesday. Loffler, who plays a number of positions for Kelowna, will start out his BSU career at safety.

"Yes, it's true," Anderson said of Loffler's commitment. "I can confirm that he made a verbal commitment to Boise State yesterday. I knew that's where he was leaning, and he made the decision with his family."

Loffler picked the Broncos over an offer from Oregon State.

"I know he wanted to get the decision out of the way before the season starts so it wouldn't be a distraction," Anderson added.

We'll have more from Loffler later about the reasons behind his decision to play for Boise State. His commitment makes public seven known prospects that are expected to sign letters of intent with BSU in February 2011.

UPDATED 1:45 pm Wednesday: Scout.com was able to catch up with Loffler, who also confirmed his commitment to Boise State Tuesday.

"I talked to the coaches again, and I really like the coaches there," he said. "The coaches are pretty much the thing that got me going to Boise. I got a really good feel for coach (Chris) Petersen.

"All the coaches were really upbeat and I really liked that. It really felt like home."

Loffler also got a great feel for the city of Boise, especially since he grew up in Billings, Mont. before moving to Kelowna.

"I really liked the city," he said of Boise. "It's not a real big city and very similar to where I used to live with the terrain and everything."

Loffler confirmed that the Broncos are bringing him in as a safety and he will take his one and only official visit to BSU after his senior season is complete.
