“It was bigger than I thought,” Anthony Camargo said of Boise. “(The team) was really tight-knit. There was a strong bond with the players and between the coaches and the players.”
Camargo roomed with current Boise State freshman linebacker Joe Provenzano during his visit. The two knew each other from their mutual prep days as Provenzano attended nearby Damien High School (La Verne, Calif.).
“I worked out with him a couple of times before. That was awesome,” Camargo said. “We had a good time.”
Even with a successful trip to Idaho’s capitol city, Camargo did not feel pressured to commit or make a quick decision – which is precisely what he was hoping for.
“(The coaches) understand my position,” the 6-foot-3, 210-pound prospect said. “They understand that I want to make my decision after the season.”
Camargo, rated a three-star recruit by scout.com, has other official visits in mind as he continues the recruiting process.
“I’m going to Washington in mid-October,” he said. “I’m going to visit one of the Ivy League schools, either Harvard or Yale as well.”
Regardless of where he pledges to play, Camargo says Boise State made a big impression on him and will remain among his top schools.
“It was awesome,” he said. “There were so many good things that happened there and I had a lot of fun the whole weekend.
“I talked to a lot of the players, specifically the linebackers. They are a real good group of guys. It was nice to spend time with them.”
