QB changes field, commits to Cougs

ALEX BRINK, a 6-2, 180 pound quarterback from Sheldon High in Eugene committed to Boise State a month ago but after receiving an offer from the Cougars, the Oregon State Player of the Year has changed his commitment.

"I was contacted by Washington State a few days after I verbally committed to Boise State," Brink said. "As you may recall, Washington Sate had shown some interest in me early in the recruiting process however, the former coaching staff pursued another quarterback.

"After the coaching change at Washington State, a coach who had been recruiting me for another college joined the WSU staff. I was number one on his list and the other WSU coaches agreed.

"I have spent several days struggling with my decision. Boise State finished the season ranked No. 15 in both polls and Washington State has been to two Rose Bowls recently. Both coaching staffs are first class and I liked the players at both schools. Both schools also offer excellent academic opportunities.

"After weighing all the factors, I accepted the Washington State offer this evening (Tuesday night). I called Boise State and let them know of the change. I'm now a Washington State Cougar."
