Camargo Heading To Boise For Weekend Visit

After his freshman year at Bishop Amat High School, Anthony Camargo and his family went on vacation. All the way from Southern California, the Camargos pitched their tents in Western Idaho. During his time in the Gem State, Camargo stopped by Boise State University to check out the famed blue turf the Broncos call home. Two years later, Camargo is back, this time as a highly-touted recruit.

When Boise State takes on Louisiana-Lafayette Saturday night in Albertsons Stadium, Anthony Camargo will get a closer look at The Blue as he will be in attendance on an official visit.

“A couple of summers back I went on a vacation to Boise,” the 6-foot-3, 215-pound linebacker said. “I got to see the blue field then. I love the landscape up there. It was really nice and It’s really good weather.

“I’m taking an official to Boise State because I think it will be a good time to come see the game.”

 The Blue and Orange Store

Camargo plays both sides of the ball for Bishop Amat (La Puente, Calif.), lining up at running back on offense and linebacker on defense. The three-star prospect says he tries to model his game after UCLA star Myles Jack. And although most Division I coaches see Camargo as a linebacker at the next level, he is getting some looks on offense.

“I just want to play fierce and fearless,” Camargo said. “But some Ivy League schools are looking at me as a running back.”

When it comes to his college destination, Camargo knows exactly what he wants, and Boise State is under serious consideration.

“I’m looking for a college with good academics and a good football program that has a family feel to it,” he said. “I enjoy talking to (Boise State linebackers) coach (Andy) Avalos and (head) coach (Bryan) Harsin. I want to see how it is on game day. It’s going to be a cool experience.”

Camargo is open to any and all schools at this point, however. Despite reports that he is choosing between Boise State and Washington only, he says that’s not the case.

“I haven’t ruled out any colleges. Everyone is even,” Camargo said. “I’ve been busy with the season and I haven’t narrowed my list down.

But, the star linebacker does not yet have any other official visits scheduled outside of Boise State.

“I’ll play my season, finish my senior year out strong and make a decision after that,” Camargo said.
