The Boise State football team has added a safety with Pac-12 offers to its 2012 recruiting class — the Broncos’ 14th commitment.

Chanceller James (6-foot-2, 190 pounds) of San Diego committed to the Broncos last week. He is a third-year starter for Steele Canyon High in Spring Valley, Calif.

James visited for the Broncos’ fall scrimmage and was impressed by the fan turnout.

“Boise State has always been my top school,” he said. “When I went up there to see it, I really liked it.”

James also plays wide receiver in high school. He led Steele Canyon with 29 catches for 499 yards and five touchdowns last season, according to

His other scholarship offers included Arizona State, Arizona, Colorado, Eastern Washington, Air Force and New Mexico, he said.

He attended camps at UCLA and Arizona.

“I liked Boise better than those,” he said.

He was recruited by defensive coordinator Pete Kwiatkowski.

The Broncos lose three scholarship safeties after this season — George Iloka, Travis Stanaway and Cedric Febis.

Here’s the updated 2012 recruiting class:

Some people

are just intent on proving exactly how STUPID they are. Well done - nice job Clueless Joe

Im not understanding...

I am clueless to your ranting...please enlighten.

Are you all there? Im seriously asking this question. Your one liners and "vanhole" references lead me to believe you're mentally unstable.

Hes a pretender. Gutless trolls flags for no reason.

I must be soft...besides wiesberg Im the most hated guy on these threads and I cant get a dam-n flag?

I would like to see

the replay on that flag!

Thanks JL

good to know that he gets the nomination. But I am confused. It says it is a civilian honor. I know for a fact that he fought alongside george washington.

pretty good p2

I saw it and thought you might get a kick out of it...

The crazy thing about Penn State fans is that they love him. I hope we keep Pete half as long. Wouldnt that be nice?

better double check

and make sure he hasn't slept on someones couch or had dinner at any house of a friend of a frind with season tickets in Boise?

Until the next rumor
