Jalen Greene recently took an unofficial visit to Boise State and the Gardena (Calif.) Serra quarterback is happy he did.
Not only did the 6-foot-3, 195-pound lefty quarterback land his first offer on the trip but he loved everything about the Broncos' program and said he'll seriously consider them moving forward in his recruitment.
"Pretty much everything stood out," Greene said.
"It's a small town but there is a lot of stuff out there that I like. I like the business school, that's what I want to major in when I go to college, and the school had everything I like."
The coaching staff also stood out to Greene, who helped lead Serra to the state championship in his junior season.
The three-star prospect had good meetings with coach Chris Petersen and also did some chalk talk with quarterbacks coach Jonathan Smith that went really well.
"All the coaches are cool," Greene said. "I like all the coaches. Coach (Petersen) my dad and I met with him three times and he offered before we left. Coach Smith, the quarterbacks coach, is a really cool guy. We met and then we went to the white board and we drew up a couple plays and we were talking about scenarios.
"He let me draw up one of his plays and he showed me what they do and I explained it back to him. It was pretty good and I was learning at the same time."
Greene, who has been hearing more from BYU, Colorado State and Arizona, said Boise State made an intriguing pitch to him about their use of quarterbacks and how well he fits into their system.
"They were saying lefty quarterbacks come there and succeed and I could be the next one," Greene said. "They were saying I could be one of the winningest quarterbacks in college history so they were pretty fond of lefties.
"I don't know if I'll commit super early but I did like it a lot. The other school I might visit might be Arizona State just to compare. Right now, Boise is really high."
The Serra standout is expected to take another unofficial visit this weekend to Nevada along with Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco wide receiver Shay Fields.
