Boise State had a busy weekend in recruiting by land a pair of recruits. They landed Prosper, Texas, running back Robert Mahone, and the latest commit is Twin Falls, Idaho, offensive lineman Kole Bailey.

Bailey is a 6-foot-5, 285-pound three-star offensive lineman who decided to stay in-state to attend Boise State. He attended their Elite Camp last weekend and was offered, and made the commitment after thinking about it for a week.

Bailey ultimately decided on Boise State after heading to a camp at Oregon to see what a Power Five school could offer, and if it was better than Boise State.

"Going to Oregon was kind of like me getting out to see if the more hyped up schools are better," Bailey told Bronco Country. "I feel like they have an advantage with funding and that sort of thing, but Boise State is right there with them and it wasn't enough to sway me from the Broncos.

"I've gone to a few other schools and camped at a few of them," he said. "Something about the way Boise State's coaches, assistants and students treated me, even the people working at the BroncoShop treated me, was incredible. It felt right."

Baily's stock has been improving and was getting interest from Utah, Washington State and held an offer from Nevada. Besides being a Boise State fan from a young age, Bailey see's the Broncos on the verge of taking the next step as a program.

“There’s relief and especially excitement. I’m really excited to get over there," Baily told the Idaho Press-Tribune. "I think the Broncos are on the verge of taking it to the next level. I can’t wait to be part of it.”

Now with his recruitment behind him, Bailey wants to focus on his senior year of high school.
