Inda Talks BSU Commitment

2017 Golden West LB Joseph Inda (6-1, 233) committed to Boise State over the weekend and he updated on why he decided so quickly once he got on campus...

"I committed there on Saturday when I was on my visit," a happy Inda said after returning home. "It was mainly the family atmosphere that set them apart.

"Right when I got there, from seeing the facilities, to meeting with the coaches and the players, it's all about family there and I just felt welcomed from the moment I arrived."

Inda said he spent most of his time with the coaching staff, but when he told Boise State head coach Bryan Harsin he wanted to become a Bronco, that's when "craziness" ensued.

"I was talking with coach Harsin and I said I wanted to become a Bronco and he was like 'great, let's announce it' so we walked out and I told everyone I was committing," Inda recalled. "I met with the offensive coaches first and they all hugged me and then I got to talk to the defensive coaches and they were all really excited, especially the defensive coordinator."

Inda is projected at middle linebacker once he arrives and he said another reason he chose to commit to BSU was the fact that he would be allowed to compete for the starting job.

"I don't want to go to a place and just have them hand me the job," Inda said. "I just wanted the chance to compete because I am confident in what I can do and they are offering me that opportunity."

In addition to his offer from Boise State, Inda had also been hearing from Iowa State, but he plans to sign his letter-of-intent with the Broncos on Monday during a ":big family dinner."

"I want them to be part of it because they have been with me the whole time," Inda noted.

As a sophomore this past season for Golden West, Inda posted 48 tackles, two sacks, 11 tackles-for-loss, one forced fumble and an interception while manning the middle of the Rustlers' defense.

"We played a true 4-3, so I was right in the middle and I feel like that was when I played my best," Inda told earlier this month. "My instincts are really what sets me apart from the other linebackers. A lot of coaches watched my film and said 'they sure blitzed you a lot', but actually that wasn't the case. I just read things really well and I get downhill and come up and make the play quickly.

"I really like to be physical at the point-of-attack and that's another aspect I think I bring to the game."

Inda has already finished up his academic work, so he can enroll at a school almost immediately and he will have two years to play two starting this fall.
