Holtsville (Calif.) tight end David Lucero (6-5.5, 215), was looking for a place that he'd fit in well.

After Boise State offered him, Lucero found the right fit and committed to the Broncos earlier this month.

"I picked them because the program, it has a name for football and I like the way their offense is and I thought they were a good fit for me," said Lucero.

Lucero said the Bronco coaches want him to be utilized in a number of ways at tight end.

"They want me to get my hands dirty and block and then be able to spread out and catch a couple of balls," said Lucero.

Lucero also had offers from UTEP and Montana State before the Broncos offered and was also hearing from Colorado, Colorado State, SMU and Washington.

"Oregon was also talking to me but not as much as they were a while ago," said Lucero.

Lucero said the previous regime at Boise State first scouted him but then when Bryan Harsin took over, the offer came.

"Coach (Andy) Avalos had been scouting me but when the new coach came in, Coach Harsin, they offered me," said Lucero.

Lucero called Harsin to tell him he wanted to be a Bronco.

"I really liked Coach Harsin and it felt natural to talk to him," said Harsin. "I really felt comfortable with him. We talked about what he used to do and what I'm doing in high school and just hit it off from there."

Next week, Avalos will be in for an in-home then next weekend, he'll head to the Blue Turf.

"I'm going up on my official visit on January 24th and I'm excited," said Lucero. "I'm really solid to them."
