Cosumnes Oaks CB Marcus Rios (Elk Grove, CA) became the earliest verbal commitment in program history when he pledged to the Blue & Orange back on March 1st. The talented CB has picked up eight more offers since pledging to Boise State & and many have wondered if his commitment to the Broncos would stick. Well, he now has an answer.

"We're sticking with Boise State," he said. "Well, it was about a week after the Stanford Camp and things were starting to get real heavy. I was at the point where I wanted to focus on Boise and I spoke to Coach Yates and Coach Petersen, told them the situation. My mind is focused on Boise from here-on out."

"It was kind of a loyalty thing," he stated. "I knew I wanted to go there growing up and it's a great fit for me. That's the main thing that sticks out to me."

"Right now, I only plan on going to two camps," he said. "I'm going to the team camp at Boise State and the Nike Training Camp at Washington," he added.

The standout CB says the relationship he has with Head Coach Chris Petersen and Defensive Backs Coach Marcel Yates is a big reason why he's 100% Bronco.

"Coach Petersen is kind of like my dad," said Rios. "He stays on me, pushes me, and makes sure I make the right decision. He knows Boise is the best fit for me, but never pressured me and I respect that. I'm committed to them and it needs to stay that way. The same goes for Coach Yates. He told me the deal and that's why I'm sticking with Boise State."

"Coach Petersen and Coach Yates told me everything I wanted to hear," he said. "They told me I can be an All-American, play from the start, win championships, and advance me to the next level."

Rios will also graduate HS early and enroll at Boise State in January 2012.

"I'm currently taking summer classes," he said. "In the meantime, I'm preparing myself to play. I'm training hard every day and I'm ready to compete against the best and dominate."

"Their defense is perfect for me," said Rios. "I've been watching them since I was little and I know I'll never be outworked."
