In what should be a surprise to no one, Boise State has a quarterback leave for a different opportunity.
Confirmed with @alexogleQB that he's transferring to Arizona Western College, a JC. He'll be a redshirt sophomore— Bronco Beat (@IDS_BroncoBeat) December 27, 2015
A late 2014 recruiting pick up for the Broncos, Alex Ogle could not break the three-deep. Realistically sitting behind: Finley, Rypien (the real number two), and Stuart at the start of the season.
Ogle red-shirted his 2014 year and only saw three games this year. Two attempts for five yards. It is unfortunate that he has decided to make a move, but he has to do what is right for him. He will be transferring to Arizona Western College, a junior college.
What is most disappointing is the phrasing in his departure:
QB Alex Ogle on his decision to transfer: "Boise State has their guy and I'm not looking to be a backup."— Bronco Beat (@IDS_BroncoBeat) December 27, 2015
No one--NO ONE--should fault Ogle in his desire to play. He is a competitor and wants to prove his worth while he still has the chance. But the way he's phrased the statement is discouraging.
But, it is not personal:
Ogle: "It's as simple as this, Boise has their guy, and I'm not satisfied with being a backup. Nothing personal, just business."— B.J. Rains (@BJRains) December 27, 2015
Definitely business, on both ends.
Good luck Alex on your future endeavors. Hopefully you find nothing but success going forward.
