Prosser HS WR Kirby Moore (Prosser, WA) became the thirteenth 2009 commitment for the Broncos over the weekend. "I'm 100% committed to Boise State," he said. "Boise State will be my only official visit."

The standout WR committed to Chris Petersen just prior to the game against Bowling Green. "I committed to Coach Pete about thirty minutes before the game," he said. "He told me I made his night and they needed to go out and get a win first. I knew it was the place for me."

Moore (6'2.5, 197, 4.6) had been thinking about the possibility of committing all week prior to the game. "I had the feeling I was going to commit before visiting," he said. "Kellen already knew."

The biggest factor was simply that he wanted to play alongside his brother. "I thought I'd regret it if I didn't play with Kellen in college," he said. "I told Kellen I was going to commit to Coach Pete."

Boise already feels like home to Kirby. "I really felt great about my decision. I got to hangout with Kellen after the game and it was just like home. I like that and it'll be a great transition having Kellen there."

Kirby was introduced to all of the visiting commits by Chris Petersen. "They were all excited to be Broncos," he said. "I'm ready to join the Bronco family."

Moore instantly made a connection with one commit in particular, Joe Southwick. "You always want to be the best friend of the QB," he said. "I met Joe at the Boise State football camp. I talked to him a bit before the game. I'm excited," he added.

Kirby's parents are just as excited as he is. "My parents loved my decision," he said. "They didn't want to pressure me. I had already told my mom and I decided to wait and surprise my dad. He didn't believe me at first," he added.

The game against Bowling Green was certainly exciting and Kirby enjoyed watching the game. "They played well," he said. "They stalled a bit in the second half with a few turnovers. The defense looked very good. Brady (Bronco LB Tim Brady ) is a beast out there."

Kirby will be ahead of the curve as he and Kellen will get to work on the playbook as soon as possible. "I talked to Kellen about the playbook and he's going to bring it home," he said. "We're going to look it over. I think it'll really help over the summer," he added.

Moore will keep in close contact with the coaching staff. "I just talked to Coach Pete last night," he said. "He was letting me know a few things that I can work on. Working on those things could allow me to play early," he added.

Bronco fans have plenty to be excited about. "I like getting the jump balls and going inside a lot," he said. "I can also go over the middle and get the underneath stuff."

Kirby Moore had 29 TD receptions last season and he's well on his way this season. "We're 2-0," he said. "We beat Redmond 34-29 in game one. We beat Quincy 76-0 last week." Moore had 14 receptions for 190+ yards and 3 TDs against Redmond. He had 5 receptions for 90+ yards and 2 TDs against Quincy. "We play Othello this week," he said. "They are one of the better teams in our league. They are going to try to run the ball at us. We have to keep our offense on the field," Moore added.

Boise State recruiting has been on a roll this year like never before. Moore will bring intensity and passion to Boise and a winning attitude as well. "Playing with Kellen at this level of football will be amazing," he said. "I never thought it would happen. I'm very excited."
