Boise State went down to Georgia and picked up a verbal commitment from quarterback Michael Tamburo. Tamburo, 6-1 and 185 pounds, is a south paw from Suwanee (Ga.) North Gwinnett High School.
"I committed just a few minutes ago," Tamburo said. "I feel awesome. I am very excited about it overall and now I can concentrate on the playoffs. I am so excited to be a Bronco.
"I love the overall football program; the system and the coaches. What really won me over was the quarterback coach. He had ten plays broken down from my senior season and told me what he liked. It was an 80 yard run, passes with some accuracy, a deep fade, a vertical and stuff like. They were studying me. I thought coach (Chris) Peterson was very humble and laid back. We talked on Sunday and he offered me in his office."
To Tamburo it's more than just football. He liked everything about Boise and what the total package was all about.
"The football is all great but outside of that the school, facilities, and everything is awesome. It's just a beautiful place."
Tamburo has led his team to a 8-2 record. They face Snellville (Ga.) Brookwood this weekend in the first week of the Georgia state playoffs. Over his sophomore nad junior seasons Tamburo threw for over 4,300 yards, rushed for over 1,000 and accounted for 59 touchdowns. In ten games this season Tamburo has thrown for over 1,600 yards and rushed for over 600 yards. He has combined for 19 touchdowns.
