The talented WR picked up an offer from Boise State a few months ago and he says the camp allowed him an opportunity to see the coaching style and to get a better feel for the campus. So, how was the camp?

"It was great," he said. "I got here on Wednesday just in time for some 7-on-7 that evening. We practiced in the morning, did some receiving drills, and that afternoon Coach Prince had us run some individual routes."

"Coach Prince is a very good teacher of the game," he stated. "I feel that he taught me a lot and that I was able to improve my route running."

"I like that Coach Petersen runs his team differently," said Austin. "He makes it fun, cares for the individual player, and it's just a fun atmosphere out there."

Austin and his mom had a meeting with Head Coach Chris Petersen and he says his mom likes the fact that Boise State emphasizes the academic side.

"My mom and I met with Coach Petersen individually today," he said. "He talked to us about what it's like to be a Bronco, teaching us about academics, and the history of Boise State."

"This was my mom's first time coming up here and she loved it," he said. "She thinks the city is beautiful and the school is fantastic. She really likes how they emphasize the academic side."

So, where does Boise State currently stand?

"I'm trying to stay open right now since I also want to visit Oregon State and Utah," he said. "I like Boise State a lot, though. This was my second time coming here and I've gotten a good feel for the city and campus."

"I really admire the coaching staff at Boise State," he said. "Coach Petersen, Coach Prince, and all of the coaches are very genuine and love what they do."

So, what does Jack Austin (6'3, 205, 4.59) bring to the gridiron?

"I've been described as a big but capable receiver," he said. "I got complimented on my route running today and the coaches felt it was really smooth," he added.
