Andy Dekaney HS TE Armand Nance (Houston, TX) committed to Boise State back in June and has a bit under the radar in recent months. The coaching staff sees Nance as a prospect with lots of potential and one that could also make an impact on either side of the ball. The future Bronco says he wants to develop into a "complete" TE and will use his senior season to do just that.

"I want to develop into a complete TE," he said. "We're going to try to open up the passing game more this year and that'll force me to make plays. That's the biggest thing...I have to make plays."

"I'll be playing both ways," he stated. "I'm starting at DE, but then I'll play some TE too. Boise State recruited me as a TE/H-Back and what they plan to do is get me up there, put me through some drills, and see where I fit in at with the team. They're going to give me a chance at multiple positions. That's what I like about Boise State."

"I've really gotten comfortable with Coach Huff over the past couple months," said Nance. "The last time I spoke to him we just talked about each other, personal things like that. He'll always tell me how it is and how it's going to go. That's the kind of people I want to surround myself with."

The Texas native will take his official visit to Boise State in November as he'll watch the Broncos battle the Horned Frogs on The Blue.

"I haven't been up there yet. I'm waiting to take my official," he said. "I can't remember the exact day, but I know I'm going up there for the TCU game. Those were my top two schools going into the recruiting process, so I know that'll be a big game."

"I'm interested to see how the weather is since I've heard it's much cooler up there," said Nance. "One thing I want to see is the relationship between the coaches and the players during the game. You know, like how the coaches react if a player messes up or something like that."

HS football makes its return this week and the future Bronco says he's ready to get the season underway.

"We got our opener coming up (this past weekend). I'm real excited," he said. "We've got Fort Bend Marshall this week. Personally, I think we're going to put up a lot of points with our RB, fly to the ball on defense, and win this game." (Note, Dekaney did put up a lot of points in a 60-6 smashing of Fort Bend Marshall, but only had 6 passes all evening)

"As team captain, I plan to help my team in as many aspects as I can," he said. "I'm going to motivate them to get that last touchdown, that last tackle, and just help them make plays so we can be successful as a team."
