Prairie View HS WR Jordon Vaden (Henderson, CO) is the top WR prospect in the State of Colorado for the 2012 class and currently has nine offers in-hand. One of those nine happens to be from Boise State, but it's not exactly a "full" offer. So, what exactly does that mean?

"Boise State gave me a half offer and it depends on how many other positions they fill," he said. "Basically, they're looking at a bunch of different positions right now and should they miss on some of those or have a spot available, I'll get the offer."

Where would Boise State stand if a "full" offer was on the table?

"I'd say Arizona State and CSU are my two favorites right now, but Boise State would be right in that next tier," he said. "I like Boise State because of their tradition and offense," he added.

"Arizona State is a Pac-12 school, so I like that a lot," said Vaden. "It's an amazing conference and I always wanted to play in the Pac-12."

"For CSU, I like the fact that they're local and I really felt a family feeling around there."

The talented WR says education is the top priority on his list as he goes through the recruiting process.

"Education is #1 and I want the best education possible," he stated. "I also want to be surrounded by good people. I want to get to the next level after college, but you've got to have good people around you. You got to surround yourself with good people in order to be successful."

In 2010, the Thunderhawks finished the season with a 6-4 record. Vaden says a few unlucky bounces were the difference between finishing with 6 wins as opposed to 10, but they're looking to take it up a notch this season.

"We didn't lose any of our games by more than seven points. A lot of it had to do with bad luck," he said. "I think we also play in the toughest league in 4A, so finishing 6-4 wasn't all that bad. I think this year we're going to make a run at the conference title."

"We just got out of boot camp. It mainly focused on getting us ready and conditioned for the season," he said. "We start practice here in the next couple weeks and our first game is a month from now. We got to be ready for the season."

What does Vaden (6'3, 178, 4.5) bring to the gridiron?

"I think my biggest thing is just overall versatility," he said. "I'll play wherever the coach wants me to play," he added.

The talented WR currently has offers from Arizona State, Colorado State, Boise State, New Mexico, Utah State, UNLV, Wyoming, Ohio, and Tulsa.
