Cosumnes Oaks CB Marcus Rios (Elk Grove, CA) became the earliest verbal commitment in program history when he pledged to the Blue and Orange in early March The future Bronco was on campus just a little over a week ago as he attended the inaugural Junior Day event at Boise State By all accounts, the visit to Boise was everything Rios expected and more

"I loved everything about it," he said "I got to meet all the coaches, see the campus, go downtown, just loved everything about it It's everything I thought it was and I know I'll fit in well "

"The Junior Day was a really good experience," he stated "I got to talk one-on-one with Coach Yates and Coach Petersen Basically, we just picked up right where we left off Coach Yates said he really likes me as a player and that I know almost all of the techniques, so I'll be able to get used to it quickly It was amazing talking to Coach Petersen too He's almost like a second father to me He's making sure I stay on track and am ready for Division One football "

The talented CB has a lofty goal in mind and that's to graduate early from HS He plans to enroll at Boise State in January 2012

"I'm going to try to graduate early I talked about it last weekend with my coach," said Rios "Coach Yates was telling me I could make a big impact on the team, so I should get there as early as I can Everything is set for me and looking good so I can enroll in January "

Rios (6'0, 170, 4 43) picked up another offer just a couple days ago as Colorado became the seventh school to put an offer on the table Getting a new offer is great, but he says he's all-Bronco

"I'm more than 100% committed to Boise State," he said "I know it's the best fit for me," he added

Spring practice will get underway next week at Cosumnes Oaks Track season is still going strong, so Rios will have to prepare for football season on his own
