Fruitland HS ATH Alec Dhaenens (Fruitland, ID) verbally committed to Boise State back in February and will attend the Junior Day event held on the Boise State campus this Saturday. The future Bronco is currently hard at work preparing for the start of spring practice and says he's eager to get back out on the practice field.

"I've got the ACT on Saturday morning, but me and Joey are going to Boise after that," he said. "I'm looking forward to it...can't wait," he added.

"I'm definitely going to watch the TEs (at the spring game) much more closely than I have in the past," he stated. "I'm going to watch how they play and see what I can learn from that."

"I went to one of the practices a couple Saturday's ago right before our spring break," said Dhaenens. "I thought they were definitely organized, moving quickly from drill to drill, it was cool. I watched the TEs pretty closely."

He also keeps in touch with Head Coach Chris Petersen and TEs Coach Scott Huff.

"I've spoken recently to Coach Pete, Coach Huff, and Coach Avalos," he said. "They asked me if I enjoyed the practice, what's I've been up to, and congratulated me on the state championship in basketball."

"I'm 100% committed."

Dhaenens (6'4, 237) and Martarano will hit the practice field in May for the start of spring ball. That sour taste still lingers from the end of the 2011 season and it's safe to say that they'll be all business when spring ball rolls around next month.

"Spring practice starts in May," he said. "I just want to keep getting stronger, better, and prepared for the season. The main goal is to just keep conditioned...things like that."

"We're definitely focused on winning state this year," he said. "We don't want a repeat of last year at all," he added.

"Right now, I workout every day after school," said Dhaenens. "I also do some speed training on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. It helps with my acceleration and change of direction."

And lastly, the talented ATH will be back in Boise this summer for the annual football camp.

"Yeah, I'm going to camp at Boise State."
