A Bronco To The Fullest

Kempner HS CB Quaylon Ewing (Sugar Land, TX) became the second Boise State 2009 commitment back on May 29th. Ewing has been preparing all summer for the upcoming season and he wants to be a leader both on and off the field. He spoke to BroncoCountry.com about his commitment to Boise State and his plans for this season.

Kempner HS CB Quaylon Ewing (Sugar Land, TX) became the second Boise State 2009 commitment back on May 29th. He hasn't looked back at all since making his commitment. "I'm 100% committed to the Broncos," he said. "I'm a Bronco to the fullest."

The standout CB receives emails regularly from other schools. "I receive emails all the time from Baylor, Texas A&M, and UNLV," he said.

Ewing (6'0.5, 178) was recruited by Coach (Jeff) Choate and Coach (Marcel) Yates. "They were real straight forward and didn't promise me anything," he said. "They were very honest and they feel I can be a piece to the puzzle."

Quaylon received his offer from Coach Yates over the phone. "He told me I'd be a good addition to the team," he said. "He didn't want to pressure me at all. He only wanted me to commit when I was ready," he added.

It didn't take Ewing long before he knew he was ready to commit. He called Coach Yates and committed to the Broncos. "Words can't express how excited I was," he said. "I was going crazy. I had to calm down."

Ewing will be heading to Boise this weekend for the opener against Idaho State. "I talked to the coaches and setup my official visit on Friday," he said. He's looking forward to his first trip to the campus. "I've never visited," he said. "I'm really excited and I can't wait to see all of the fans and the atmosphere." The famous blue field will also take centerstage as Quaylon visits. "I love the blue field," he said. "I'm ecstatic to see it. It's special. It's unique. It's Boise State," he added.

There were a few aspects that helped Ewing know he was making the right decision. "I was looking for a top-notch football program," he said. "I wanted to play for a winning team and Boise State only recruits the best."

The comfort he felt with the coaches was another key to his decision. "There must be something in the air in Boise," he said. "I love the coaches. They are all great guys. Coach Pete is a big family man. I knew that the moment I spoke to him."

The third factor in Quaylon's decision came from the fact that a close friend of his is currently on the team. "My friend George (IIoka) committed to the Broncos last season," he said. "Me and him are really close and he told me that Boise State would be a perfect fit for me the moment they started recruiting me."

Ewing keeps in close contact with Coach Choate. "Me and Coach Choate email each other at least two or three times a week," he said. "I also talk to Coach Yates every now and then on the phone. I have a good relationship with them," he added.

To say that Quaylon is a pure athlete would be an understatement. He has played nearly every position on the field during his HS career. "I mostly played RB, CB, S, and WR," he said. "I also play on special teams. I return kicks and punts." Last season, Kempner HS went 6-5 and Ewing hopes he can lead the team to a better record this upcoming season. "I don't have any personal goals," he said. "I just want to be a leader and set an example for the younger guys. I'm going to play hard and be a role model."

Ewing also runs track and it looks like the Broncos have another speedster based on his recent 40 times. "I ran a 4.4 three different times," he said. "They used three different clocks to make sure it was correct," he added.

The pipeline into Texas has become a valuable tool for the Boise State football program. We have already seen it continue this recruiting season with the commitments of Quaylon Ewing and Arron Burks.
