Yakoo makes pledge after visit

Mario Yakoo was committed to UCLA but the two sides decided to part ways last month leaving the Spring Valley (Calif.) Steele Canyon offensive guard in a tough spot.
But after taking an official visit to Boise State this weekend the 6-foot-4, 325-pound prospect found a new home and decided to make his pledge.
Yakoo said he couldn't be happier.
"They brought me out there on an official visit and all of the coaching staff was great and really nice," Yakoo said. "It felt like a big family with the team.
"They have an amazing program and have great academics and are almost done with this huge business building and I am planning on majoring in business."
Arizona, Air Force and Eastern Washington were three other schools who were interested in Yakoo throughout the recruiting process.
Once Yakoo, a two-star prospect by Rivals.com, reopened his recruitment last month he wasn't sure who would get involved in his recruitment but Boise State jumped out soon after he decided to look at other programs.
Now that Yakoo has taken a visit to Boise State he said there's no doubt it is a great fit for his future.
"They are just a really good fit for me plus nobody wins more games than Boise State does," Yakoo said.
