New Offer And Official Visit Plans For Boesen

Long Beach DE Mat Boesen (6-4, 238) has added yet another offer and he updated on the two official visits he's already set up...

"I just got an offer from TCU," a happy Boesen told

The offer from the Horned Frogs joins the full rides he already possessed from the likes of Baylor, Iowa State, Louisiana Tech, Louisville, Marshall and Washington State.

"I've got one set up for Louisville on July 17th and Baylor on July 23rd," Boesen noted. "I'll be visiting TCU but I am not sure on the date yet."

Boesen spent the 2013 and 2014 seasons at Boise State, the school he signed with after a stellar career at Torrance (Ca.) West High School.

However, Boesen got himself into some off-the-field trouble, so he decided to move on to Long Beach to get a fresh start.

"There were two off-the-field issues that ultimately led to them dismissing me," Boesen admitted. "I have accepted it and moved on from it and I've made a lot of good changes and grown a lot stronger as a man within the past six months."

After leaving this winter, Boesen began to look around and he said that Long Beach just seemed like the right place for him.

"They had a great year last year," Boesen said. "I also liked coach (Brett) Peabody and my buddy Josh Allen that I played with in high school goes here."

Boesen is set to play one of the defensive end spots for the Vikings this fall and he said most schools see him as the hybrid defensive end/linebacker that is so en vogue in today's defenses.

"Schools have been mostly recruiting me as their hybrid defensive end/linebacker spot where I would put my hand in the dirt and also drop into coverage," Boesen said. "It really doesn't matter what defensive end spot I play. I'm comfortable on both sides."

Boesen said while he hasn't set up any visits at this point, his plan is to take most of his allotted five official visits this summer and then make his decision at some point during or shortly after his season is completed.

Boesen is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have two years to play two following the 2015 football season.
