Andy Dekaney HS TE Armand Nance (Houston, TX) verbally committed to Boise State over the summer and received an in-home visit from his future Head Coach about two weeks ago as Chris Petersen stopped by for an in-home visit. The staff has been on the road for the past month as they look to put the finishing touches on the 2012 recruiting class.

"Coach Petersen and Coach Choate were here the Friday before last...the 6th sounds about right," he said. "It was a good visit. We talked about the summer bridge program, how Boise State is known for graduating its players, and the expectations of being a Boise State Bronco."

"I was disappointed at first when I heard Coach Choate was leaving," he stated. "Still, I understand that there comes a point in your life where you have to move forward and this will help him move up. It's all good and I wish him well."

"My mom loves all the coaches," said Nance. "They're great guys, down to Earth, real relaxed, and she couldn't agree more with what they were saying about academics. She enjoyed the visit just as much as I did."

New Offensive Coordinator Robert Prince and LBs Coach Bob Gregory dropped by Nance's HS for a quick visit on Tuesday afternoon.

"Coach Prince is a cool dude, real relaxed," he said. "He had a pretty good swagger about himself. I think his NFL experience will be big...six years is a lot. I feel that our offense will be really good if everything clicks the way he wants. He knows a lot about football."

"The first thing he asked me was could I catch," said Nance. "I think we're going to be throwing the ball around a good bit."

"I'm 100% committed."

Last Saturday, The Houston Chronicle ran an article highlighting "The Houston Four." Meaning, the four verbal commits in the 2012 recruiting class from the Houston, TX area. Armand says the group has become quite close over the past few months.

"On Friday, we all did a photo shoot. That was a lot of fun," he said. "It was funny since me, Shane, and Ben were all waiting for Devan to get there. He was stuck in traffic for like a half hour."

"It's been a great experience getting to know those guys," said Nance. "We talk a lot and keep in touch through Facebook and stuff like that."

Signing Day is now just around the corner and Armand (6'2, 240) says he's ready to sign with Boise State.

"I can't wait for Signing Day," he said. "Our coach is going to have a ceremony at school so we can take a bunch of pictures and things like that," he added.
