Los Alamitos (Calif.) wide out Jeremy Childs tripped to Boise State this past weekend and said he has some news that he thinks will shock everyone.
"I committed to Boise State on my visit," Childs said. "I really think it's the best place for me and I'm excited about this decision. Like I said before, the offense is a great fit for me. Boise does a lot of three and four wide receiver sets and Coach Hawkins was telling me I'll have a great chance to come in and play right away.
"Another factor is I have a brother and a cousin on the team so I'll have a good support system already there. I never thought I would be leaving Los Angeles but I think it will be good for me. A lot of people have told me it helps you to grow up when you leave the area and I think that will happen for me."
Childs committed in late December to UCLA although the Bruins were never able to take his commitment because the receiver had yet to get a qualifying SAT score.
"I was just never sure about UCLA, even after I committed," Childs said. "I didn't have the same kind of bond with their coaches as other places. At first they told me they were only taking two receivers, me and Turner but now it seems they're tripping in a whole bunch of other guys there so I don't know, I just felt like Boise State was the best overall fit for me and I'm excited to play for Coach Hawkins and be a part of his team."
We asked Childs if he passed the SAT on his recent test and he said he did but didn't remember his score.
