Andy Dekaney HS TE Armand Nance (Houston, TX) verbally committed to Boise State back in June and was in Boise last weekend for his official visit. This visit took on an even greater importance as it marked the first time that Nance has been on campus since verbally committing over the summer. So, what did he think of the visit to Boise State?

"I love it and can't wait to get back," he said. "I felt the hospitality, everyone was real polite and had manners. I noticed how calm, quiet, and what a beautiful place it was while on our way to the hotel. I had a great time."

"I had a little meeting with Coach Huff," he stated. "We watched a little film and talked about what they like to do with their TEs. They recruited me as a TE/FB-type of guy, mostly a blocker, but I can catch some passes that come my way too. I know everything will be a little bit harder, but I'm willing to work to be the best."

"I had a meeting with Coach Pete too," said Nance. "Coach Pete is a great guy. He's going to keep you straight and said he wants a good football player, but a great person as well. He won't recruit you if you don't have that. He told me I was an 'OKG' and that made me feel good."

"My mom loves that Coach Pete is all about grades and loved the visit just as much as I did."

And the game itself?

"That was one of the best Boise games that I've seen," he said. "I was actually glad it wasn't a blowout. Air Force came out and showed that they were going to run the football, force Boise to stop it. They fought through that and showed they can overcome adversity."

"The atmosphere itself is what stood out to me," said Nance. "The Broncos responded to a team that showed they were going to run the ball hard and put up points. The fans were really into it and that was great to see as well. We usually stomp a mud-hole in teams like this, but the team played hard and responded well to adversity."

A fellow Texas native was Armand's host while on the visit to Boise State.

"Sam Ukwuachu was my host. The guy from Pearland," he said. "He was telling me to stay focused in class. Being from home, he said you don't have your parents to tell you to do this or that."

"I'm 100% committed."

Nance and his teammates are 7-1 through eight games this season. The future Bronco plays a full sixty minutes each game at DE and TE, but says there's still work to be done.

"I expected us to be this good," he said. "Unfortunately, we didn't show up in that one loss, but we went back to practice that next week and got better because of it."

"I feel I can do a lot of things better than I am right now," he said. "I need to do a little better on both sides of the ball," he added.

The talented TE says he watches the NFL Network and has been able to incorporate a few "tips" to help his conditioning.

"I watch a lot of NFL Network and the NFL players say you get out of your body what you put into it," he said. "I eat a lot of good food, drink a lot of water, and do extra conditioning after practice. That helps you when game-time rolls around."
