Nothing like a home football game with a brand new video board, sound system, and football operations building to sway a basketball recruit. Chandler Hutchinson from Mission Viejo, CA was in Boise over the weekend and must have fell in love... as many do. He gave a verbal commitment to the Boise State basketball program, making him the first commit in the Class of 2014.
2014 wing Chandler Hutchinson of Mission Viejo (CA) has committed to Boise State, according to @JoelFranESPN.— Alex Kline (@TheRecruitScoop) September 8, 2013
Hutchinson is a 6'5" wing who has long arms, good instincts on D, and excels at running the floor. Looks like Coach Rice got a great cornerstone piece for the class of 2014. Expect the class to include at least two more recruits to replace Ryan Watkins, Jeff Elorriaga, and Thomas Bropleh. It's good to see the team get a commitment after things fell through with Isaiah Wright (Borah HS), who committed to Utah.
