Shadle Park QB Brett Rypien announced on Twitter Saturday that he has commited to play football for Boise St.
Rypien made the decision while on campus for Boise State's Junior Day. The Shadle Park junior had numerous offers, with Washington St., Arizona St. and Oregon St. among the other programs high on his list. Washington was also in the mix until recently.
Rypien had never visited the BSU campus before Saturday, or met new Broncos' head coach Bryan Harsin in person. But they quickly made an impression.
"They really just blew me away," Rypien said Monday.
In 2013 Rypien surpassed his uncle, Mark Rypien, as the Greater Spokane League's top all-time passer with 7,135 yards. He owns the top two spots on the GSL's single season passing list with 3,266 and 3,179 the previous two seasons.
The top-five single game performances in GSL history (and six of the top seven) belong to Rypien. In 2013 he broke the Washington 11-man record for passing yards in a game with 613 in a win over Mt. Spokane.
