Martin HS OL Steven Baggett (Arlington, TX) verbally committed to Boise State back in June and was in Boise for his official visit just a little over a week ago as he watched the Broncos dominate the Nevada Wolf Pack by a score of 30-10. The O-line did a good job of opening up holes for the RBs and the future Bronco was impressed with what he saw on the field.

"The O-line looks like they are well-coached," he said. "They have great technique and everything," he added.

"I got there right as the game started on Saturday," he stated. "I got to go through all the fans, see the tailgating, and the atmosphere was really amazing. That was definitely a high point. Seeing them win and meeting all the players was awesome."

"I sat down with Coach Strausser and Coach Petersen," said Baggett. "I mainly talked to Coach Strausser about the depth chart, how it's possible I could move to OG, or play any position on the O-line. With Coach Petersen, you walk into his office and expect to talk about football, but you talk about other important things. It was all about grades, graduating, character, and things like that."

The new academic and athletic facilities currently under construction were also a major selling point on the visit.

"It's a great campus and they're adding a lot more to it," he said. "They're adding more academic buildings and they'll start building the new football facility soon as well. I'll be able to use that while I'm there."

"It was exciting to see how the campus and town revolve around the game," said Baggett. "You see the blue and orange everywhere. That's really cool."

Baggett (6'4, 250) and his teammates are 5-1 through six games. He says they expect to win every game, but can't afford to take any opponent lightly.

"Honestly, we're not good enough to overlook an opponent. Still, we go into every game expecting to win," he said. "We lost a tough game to Arlington High and that was disappointing. We have rebounded since that game and are doing well."

"I would say I'm not the biggest lineman, not the heaviest, or even the most talented," he said. "What I use is my athleticism and I have good technique. My goal is to get to that second level and I'm always working to the whistle too."

"I'm 100% committed."
