Here are a couple quotes from Tanner Shipley regarding his commitment to BSU in an ESPN article that sadly is behind the Insider wall.
"When I got there, it blew me away," Shipley said of Boise State. "Coach Petersen runs one of the best programs in the country and there is so much he does that makes his players grow in four or five years. He is a strong guy in that sense and has a presence to him that is really cool. When I got there, I felt like I was family already. I felt like it was the right fit. My gut feeling told me it was the perfect place."
Shipley said he talked over the decision with his family on Saturday night and went into a meeting with Petersen ready to announce his decision. But Shipley was met by a surprise, and another reason he knew he made the right decision.
"After I told him, he asked me why I wanted to become a Bronco," Shipley said. "That really hit me. He doesn't just want me for the football player. He wants me for me. That's one of the coolest things and why he's making kids become better in every aspect."
"Now I'm excited to go in and learn the offense," Shipley said. "I'm 100-percent committed to Boise State."
