Nevada Union HS LB Tanner Vallejo (Grass Valley, CA) verbally committed to Boise State a few months ago and will be in Boise this weekend for his official visit. The talented LB says he's eager to get a look at the gameday atmosphere and watch his future teammates in action against Fresno State.

"Sounds like it'll be a good game," he said. "Fresno State has been better than expected so far," he added.

"I spoke to Coach Gregory tonight," he stated. "We just talked about the official, how they're practicing, and our loss last week."

"Coach Petersen came and watched me play a few weeks ago," said Vallejo. "He was trying to lay low, wore gray, and just tried to act normal. That just happened to be the best game of my season so far. I felt like I had a lot of big plays and big hits in that game. I spoke to him not too long after that and he said he can't wait to coach me."

The Bronco defense has been solid through five games this season. That hasn't gone unnoticed by the future Bronco.

"I like the defense," he said. "I can't wait to play in it. What I like is how fast they are. You can see that on film. Coach Gregory is a great coach and I just can't wait to play for him."

"Coach Gregory and Coach Petersen are the same person on and off the field," said Vallejo. "That's what I like most. I feel Coach Pete is the type of coach that takes his recruits under his wing a bit more than other coaches. I really like that a lot."

The thing Vallejo wants to see most while on his visit to The Blue? The "crazy" fans.

"I heard they have some crazy fans up there," he said. "I can't wait to see that. Other than that, I'm just really looking forward to getting back up there. It's going to be a lot of fun."

Vallejo and his teammates are 3-3 through six games. They've struggled a bit more than expected and that has caused Tanner to become more of a vocal leader.

"We just aren't playing well right now. Guys aren't staying focused at practice," he said. "I've been leading a bit more lately. Some of these kids are just lazy and I've been getting onto them and letting them know they need to play better."

Through six games, Vallejo has 74 tackles, 4 forced fumbles, and 2 sacks.
