Quentin Brown checked out Boise State on an official visit over the weekend, and fell in love with everything the school and city have to offer. So much so that he committed to the Broncos before returning home Sunday afternoon.
"My visit was my first time (to Boise)," Brown said. "The town is beautiful and the people there are really supportive.
"The school is way more than I expected it to be and I can see myself living there for the next four or five years."
Brown, at 6 foot 1 and 190 pounds, is being recruiting to Boise State as a SAM linebacker. He plays all over the field for the Conroe Tigers, a school located north of Houston. But the BSU coaching staff sees him as a hard-hitting, run-stopping defensive force. That makes sense as he sees the late Sean Taylor as his football role model.
"I think it's my physicality that the coaches like," Brown said. "I'm just excited to get there and earn a spot."
His other top school was Colorado State, and he plans on taking an official visit to Fort Collins in December. He pledged to the Broncos over offers from the Rams, Kansas, Army, New Mexico, Tulane and Toledo, among others.
"They have a great football program and kinesiology program," Brown said of his blue-and-orange decision. "I feel like I would do the best there and have a chance to win championships."
