WR Austin calls Boise State 'great fit'


It took only two trips to Boise State for wide receiver Jack Austin (Chino Hills, Calif./Chino Hills) to know what he wanted. So on Friday night, he ended his recruiting process.

"Both my mom and dad had a chance to go to Boise on separate occasions," Austin said. "We sat down after that second trip, and I figured why wait. I could see myself going there. It's a great fit for me."

Austin said the town and school made a "fantastic" impression on him and he appreciated the change of pace Idaho offers from California.

"The school itself is very attractive as well, both from the outside and inside," he said. "The academics as well as athletics -- that's what got me."

The 6-foot-3, 205-pound receiver said he likes the Broncos' offense and how they utilize so much of their roster during games. The fact the Boise State offense throws the ball and spreads it around so much was very appealing.

As a junior, Austin caught 62 passes for 921 yards and 11 touchdowns. He committed to Boise State over offers from Oregon State, San Diego State, Utah and Utah State.
