He spoke to BroncoCountry.com about his interest in Boise State and his recruitment thus far.

King's HS QB Thomas Vincent (Seattle, WA) garnered First Team All-State honors for his unbelievable 2009 season and yet he's still flying under the radar this recruiting season. The standout QB hopes to change that this summer with a full camp schedule and Boise State is on the list. "I'm going to camp at Boise State, Harvard, Hawaii, UW, WSU, Oregon State, UCLA, Eastern Washington, and Idaho," he said. "I'd say UW, Oregon State, and Boise State are my top three," he added.

The high-powered offense at Boise State has caught the attention of potential recruits this recruiting cycle. "I really like their offensive scheme," he said in reference to Boise State. "They do a little bit of everything and are fun to watch. Their offense is really high-tempo and I would love to talk to some of their coaches to see what it's about when I get to their camp."

Many kids fly under the radar simply due to the competition that they are up against each week. Vincent dominated on the gridiron last season in all aspects of the game, but he has to overcome the fact that King's HS plays in the 1-A classification. Boise State has built its program on kids that weren't as highly recruited as others and that formula seems to be working just fine. For example, QB Kellen Moore played in the 2-A classification and his only other offer came from Eastern Washington. Thomas Vincent admires Boise State's All-American QB and sees himself in that same mold. "Kellen Moore is awesome," he stated. "He's a small town boy and he's really doing well. I really respect his game."

Last season, the King's Knights finished with a record of 8-4. The Knights run a spread offense and it seemed like a well-oiled machine with Vincent leading the charge. "I had a little over 1,600 yards rushing and 20 TDs," he said. "I had a little over 2,500 yards passing with 41 TDs."

Thomas (6'0, 195, 4.56) sees himself as a QB that has the ability to get those extra few yards. "I think I improvise really well if a play breaks-down. I'm able to make something out of nothing," Vincent said. "I'm really good at running the ball and grinding out those few extra yards or breaking loose from a tackle."

Spring ball starts on June 1st for the Knights and Vincent would like to work on his passing skills. "My completion rate last year was a little over 50%," he said. "I wasn't too happy about it and I've been working on it this spring. I want to work hard and become a unit with my team during spring ball. I'm going to get them ready to go and teach-up the younger guys," he added.
