Chaz Anderson took his first official visit to Boise State this past weekend but it was clear he wasn't looking ahead to his trip Friday night since he caught two first-half touchdowns and helped Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola beat Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco, 28-14.
Anderson's spark early on was important in the victory and the three-star wide receiver/cornerback definitely helped his team stay undefeated.
"I'm very proud of my team first and foremost and kind of excited by the way I played," Anderson said. "I'm just really proud of everybody.

"I thought it sparked the team a lot. I was just happy I could do my part and then that enthusiasm caught fire."
Even though he was successful at wide receiver, Anderson said he was recruited to Boise State by assistant coach Marcel Yates, who's in charge of the secondary, and so he's expecting to play cornerback for the Broncos.
That is more than fine with Anderson, who's rated No. 50 at cornerback in the 2012 class and No. 63 in the California state rankings by Rivals.com.
San Diego State had also offered and some other programs are showing interest but Anderson said he's happy with his commitment to Boise State and doesn't plan to look around.
"I was recruited by coach Yates so I'm going up there to play corner," Anderson said. "I'm completely fine with that. I just want to get on the field.
"I loved the way the coaching staff treated me. We spoke on the phone and they kept calling me and we kept talking on a regular basis. They made me feel like I was at home with them."
With his first official visit finished, Anderson said he isn't sure about other trips but definitely hasn't set up anything yet.
He doesn't expect to visit any other schools and said he's looking forward now to finishing out his senior season and then hopefully playing his teammate and friend, Kodi Whitfield, for a national title. Whitfield, a four-star receiver, is committed to Stanford.
"He's like my buddy so hopefully we can play in the national championship against each other," Anderson said. "We're going to be arch enemies when the game starts but best of friends at the end."
