"Boise State offered me a scholarship today," said 6'3 205lb WR Alex Lagemann. "I like the fact that they have a winning program and an emphasis on academics."
However, despite his interest, Lagemann admitted just a day before that its going to be tough for him to leave his familiar surroundings.
"It's going to take a lot to get me out of the Bay Area," Lagemann said.
Cal was the first school to offer Lagemann, and that wasn't lost on him.
"Coach (Jeff) Tedford has put his head on the line and offered me early. Its cool to know I am the first receiver that they've really offered. I love the facilities and the campus," Lagemann said.
Then there's that other California School, "I grew up a Stanford fan. I've had season tickets to Stanford since I was a kid," said Lagemann.
"Cal's offered, but Stanford said they're close to offering. Cal and Stanford are definitely my leaders."
And Lagemann definitely has the academic mettle for both schools, carrying a 4.2 GPA and scoring a 1960 on the SAT.
The Broncos, Bears and Cardinal, though, aren't the only schools he is hearing from. Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon and USC have all been showing interest in Lagemann.
Psychology and business are two of the majors that Lagemann has shown an interest, and the quality of education is something that has played a huge role in his two favorites.
"My schoolwork is very important to me. The education I get makes a big difference," said Lagemann.
Lagemann was at the Nike Camp in Palo Alto last weekend, and his performance there raised some eyebrows, and exceeded his own expectations.
"I ran a 4.53 forty at the Nike Camp. I was surprised, but it was more of a relief. That had been the whole question. Coaches said I had great hands and ran great routes, but the only question was my speed. My coach said I need to run a 4.5 to play in the Pac-10. I guess it was one of the fastest times," said Lagemann.
Lagemann anticipates making a decision within the next two months.
