It is always important for the home town (state?) school to get as many of the homegrown talent to stay IN STATE. So when there is an opportunity for a kid who is talented enough to play Division I football, in the state of Idaho, it is good to see that kid play for Boise State.
Tonight, a local kid from Rigby, Idaho announced his commitment to play for Boise State.

Taylor will be added to the Broncos as a preferred walk-on as a linebacker. Though he did not have any have any Division I scholarship offers, he did get offers from Idaho State, Valparaiso, and San Diego with interest from Montana.
As a senior for the Trojans, Taylor had 312 rushing yards on 70 carries (4.5 yard average) with five rushing touchdowns. He had 124 yards receiving with another two touchdowns. Defensively he had 112 tackles (27 solo, 85 assists), 15 tackles for loss, four sacks, and one interception.
Boise State has a history of turning walk-ons into first round draft picks. Perhaps Solo Taylor will evolve into one of them!
