Rocky Mountain High wide receiver Dallas Burroughs, brother of Boise State wide receiver Mitch Burroughs, orally committed Thursday to sign with the Broncos in 2011.
Burroughs (5-foot-8, 175 pounds) also had offers from Army and Utah State, he said. The Meridian resident attended Boise State's camp this week and committed in a meeting with coaches Thursday.
"It's just always been my dream school and to get to play with my brother would be really sweet," Burroughs said.
Burroughs ran the 40-yard dash in 4.44 seconds during a combine this summer, he said. He won the state title in the 100 meters last month with a time of 10.63 seconds.
"He's an exceptional player," Rocky Mountain coach Jason Warr said. "... He's one of those kids you don't see very often and definitely makes your program better."
Dallas is faster than Mitch, Warr said. Mitch, a Meridian High graduate, is a sophomore who made 11 catches last season.
"Dallas just has the ability to stretch the field," Warr said. "Even at the next level, I think he'll have that ability."
Burroughs is the third known commitment for 2011. The others are quarterback Jimmy Laughrea of Rocklin (Calif.) High and defensive end Sam Ukwuachu of Pearland (Texas) High.
