Chaz Anderson had seen his recruitment pick up in recent weeks but Boise State was always the favorite for the Los Angeles Loyola cornerback and so he's decided to make his commitment.
"I didn't make a trip up there but I heard nothing but good things from my cousin and my best friend so I just went on and made the decision," Anderson said.
"I haven't been this happy in a very long time. I'm just so excited."

Anderson's cousin, Bryan Douglas, already plays for the Broncos and close friend Lee Hightower signed with them last recruiting cycle.
The transition to college should now be a little easier for Anderson since he will have family and close friends playing alongside him at Boise State.
"Having family out there is definitely going to help me feel more welcome," Anderson said. "I feel like there is no downside to attending Boise State."
Anderson wanted to visit the campus before making his decision and tried to schedule something around Boise State's summer camp but a big 7-on-7 tournament in Southern California with his 1925 All-Stars team wouldn't allow it. He still felt comfortable enough making his decision.
No other offers had come in yet but Anderson was hearing more from Colorado, Arizona State and San Diego State. However, the Broncos were a long-time frontrunner and so he decided to end things.
"My recruiting has been picking up a lot," Anderson said. "A lot of coaches have been calling me and talking to me but I was comfortable with Boise State."
