QB says yes to Boise State

Boise State offered quarterback Alex Ogle last night and he committed on the spot. He's a quarterback from Jensen Beach, Fla.

Good things come to those who wait.

That old cliché best describes Jensen Beach (Fla.) quarterback Alex Ogle. He was hoping for a Boise State scholarship offer. He got one late last night and committed on the spot.

"I sure did," Ogle said. "They put coach [Bryan] Harsin on the phone and he offered me. I didn't know that they were going to offer but I was hoping. I committed right there. I spoke with my parents before hand and we discussed what would happen if Boise did offer. I felt like it was coming and I was all for it."

Ogle, 6-foot-3.5, 205-pounds, will make his first trip to Boise State this weekend. He leaves tomorrow.

"I have been researching them a lot," Ogle said. "They have a great school, a great program and the coaches sold it to me."

Harsin and Ogle had an existing relationship. He began to recruit him back when he was the head coach at Arkansas State.

"And it continued when he got the job at Boise State," Ogle said. "We developed that relationship. He has been loyal. He was the first and always recruited me the hardest and longest."

Ogle may not have seen the Broncos with his own eyes yet but he has always watched them from afar. Boise State first caught his eye with their Fiesta Bowl win against Oklahoma back in 2007.

"That Statute of Liberty play was incredible and that's when I started following that program," Ogle said. "They have always had good quarterbacks. I have always watched them on TV."

Ogle threw for over 2,300 yards and 22 touchdown passes this past season.
