Mat Boesen recently took an unofficial visit to Boise State, fell in love with the coaching staff and always appreciated the football program.
After some consideration upon returning home, the Torrance (Calif.) West tight end committed to the Broncos and said he could not be happier with his decision.
"I took an unofficial visit there about a month and a half ago and I just loved the program," Boesen said at the B2G Elite Camp this past weekend.

"I always loved the program and it's a winning program. I like what they have and the coaches were really cool. It just felt like a great fit for me.
"I'm from the Midwest and it's kind of like the Midwest so I was pretty comfortable with it. It's a smaller town but it's a great community. I liked it."
Boesen, a 6-foot-4, 210-pound prospect who moved to Southern California from Fargo, N.D., in the fourth grade, said his conversations with Boise State coach Chris Petersen went a long way in making his decision.
The Torrance West standout said everything went perfectly when he visited Boise State and there was no reason not to make his commitment.
San Diego State had also offered Boesen, who was hearing from some other programs as well but decided to commit to Boise State in recent days.
"When I went up there I had a 45-minute conversation with coach Petersen and he's a really cool dude," Boesen said.
"He's a players' coach and he cares about you. He wants you to achieve in the classroom besides football and he wants you to achieve in life so I really like that about him. All the coaches were just great."
