Dylan Cozens had been talking to Boise State's coaches for a few months and finally the Broncos offered on Tuesday, an exciting moment for the Scottsdale (Ariz.) Chaparral defensive end who's planning to visit after his senior season.
"I've been talking to them before I started playing this year and then I've been talking to them a lot more lately," Cozens said.
"They watched my film for a while and they were talking to my coach, coach (Charlie) Ragle, for a while and he said some good things and they just offered me."

Boise State has definitely emerged as the frontrunner for Cozens, a 6-foot-5, 235-pound prospect who also has an offer from Northern Arizona. Other schools are getting in the mix, too.
"They are very, very high on the list," Cozens said of Boise State. "They're just a great program, I really like their coach that I've been talking to lately and I've heard it's a great place to live. I haven't seen it yet but I'm going to take a visit at the end of my season.
"I'll probably wait to take a visit before I decide. They're not pressuring me to commit, they're pretty relaxed about it, but it's definitely a strong possibility that I commit there."
Recently, Missouri has been showing more interest and Cozens said he's strongly considering an official visit there soon.
Indiana has also gotten involved and the Chaparral recruit said he might go there as well. He also plans to use his two other trips but Cozens is not sure where he'll go.
Scottsdale Chaparral is 11-1 this season, its only loss coming to Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman in the season opener. Chaparral faces Gilbert (Ariz.) Perry in the playoffs this weekend.
