The Boise State football team has added a linebacker and a wide receiver to its 2013 recruiting class, which now includes seven oral commitments.
Middle linebacker Tanner Vallejo (6-2, 220) of Nevada Union High in Grass Valley, Calif., chose the Broncos over three Pac-12 offers, he said. His offer list included Arizona, Colorado, Washington State, Fresno State, Nevada, UNLV, San Diego State, Eastern Washington and Colorado State, he said. He visited UCLA, Fresno State and Nevada.
He was in Boise last week and committed Sunday evening.
“I just felt like that was a perfect fit for me,” he said. “When I was there, I just knew that it didn’t get any better than that. I just felt like I could fit right in, but mainly the coaches.
“I’ve always been a fan of theirs, too. I just definitely want to play out there.”
Vallejo was the co-Defensive MVP of the Sierra Foothill League last season.
Also, wide receiver Chris Seisay of American Canyon (Calif.) High has committed to the Broncos, according to the Napa Valley Register. The newspaper cited Seisay’s coach as the source. I have not been able to reach him yet.
Seisay was a first-team All-Solano County Athletic Conference pick as a defensive back and second-team pick as a wide receiver last season. He caught 26 passes for 756 yards and nine touchdowns.
I’ll post more on Seisay when I’m able to reach him.
