St Augustine's College PF Nick Duncan (Sydney, Australia) signed with Boise State back in April and says he's thrilled to be a Bronco. The Bronco coaching staff has recruited "Down Under" well since the arrival of Head Coach Leon Rice as the Broncos have built a pipeline into Australia. So, what are his thoughts on Boise State?

"Choosing Boise was pretty easy for myself. Its basketball program, roster, and facilities are getting better and I felt I could contribute to that. Both Drmic and Iggy have excelled by committing to Boise, so I felt I could have the same pathway they have had by choosing Boise State. It also offers a great lifestyle and a great academic support line to help with my studies!"

"John Rillie was the coach who ended up recruiting me. I played against John at nationals at an early age and he began talking to me about Boise later on. He has helped me out with everything I needed to do with coming to Boise."

"The pipeline has been a great booster for myself to come to Boise as both Drmic and Iggy have been playing big minutes and improving their game out of sight. It shows what the coaching staff have to offer and gives me confidence looking to the future."

And Duncan's thoughts on Head Coach Leon Rice?

"Coach Rice is a well-spoken, enthusiastic, and intense coach who always had different insights and stories to tell about basketball. He loved to tell me stories about his experience of coaching over the phone or on my visit. He has changed the program at Boise since he started there and it looks like it is heading in the right direction. I'm excited to play under Coach Rice."

Duncan averaged 26 ppg and 14 rebounds in the nationals tournament and says he can play down-low under the basket, but also hit the three as well.

"At Boise, I think I'll be able to play inside, but also play outside and hit the three. I'll be on the glass at both ends and set-up others for shots with screens and on-balls."
