Grandview HS TE Evan Baylis (Aurora, CO) was in Boise last week for an unofficial visit and he left with a better understanding of the program and all it has to offer. Where does Boise State stand following the visit?

"Boise State will definitely stay in the mix," he said. "It's cool how fast they built the program up and the new facilities are going to be great too. The whole town was cool and nice. Overall, I enjoyed it a lot."

"The meeting with Coach Petersen was real good," he stated. "He's a real nice guy and we talked a lot about the program, the ethics, and how they treat their players. He told me to pick the college that feels right for me and I liked that."

The Boise State offense utilizes the TE position in a variety of ways and the coaching staff is using that to their advantage on the recruiting trail.

"Coach Huff talked to me about the offense a lot," said Baylis. "He showed me some video of the TEs in their offense and how I'd fit in with what they want to do. I could see myself playing in an offense like that and I think that could possibly be a good fit for me."

Evan brought his dad along on the visit and says his dad likes what the program has to offer.

"My dad really likes Coach Petersen and his ethics about football, the program, and how they built the program," he said. "He likes their program and all that they do for their students."

The standout TE has eight offers in-hand and will be looking to narrow his list in the near future.

"I'm trying to narrow it down and make my decision this summer," he said. "I'm going to Michigan, Oregon, and Stanford next week. The main thing I'm looking at right now is the relationship with the coaching staff and finding a place that I'd be happy at even if I wasn't playing football."

Spring practice starts next week for Baylis (6'6, 220, 4.8) and his teammates. He says he's looking forward to getting back out on the field.

"We're doing conditioning right now each morning and spring ball starts next week," he said. "With spring ball starting next week, I'm really looking forward to getting back out on the field," he added.

As a junior, Baylis had 33 receptions for 456 yards and 6 TDs.
