Anyone who is familiar with the Boise State program knows that traditionally, the tight-end position is a focal point in the Bronco offense. The latest example of this was the three touchdowns last game from senior TE Jake Roh. Late tonight, the Broncos picked up a verbal commitment from their TE of the future as Cole Ramseyer announced his commitment via twitter.

Cole, who is ranked a three star recruit and as high as the third best recruit in the state of Idaho, plays DE in addition to TE for his high school team, Coeur d'Alene High School. He is listed at 6’4 and 230 pounds, giving his great size for the TE position. Being a local player, he has been on the staff’s radar for some time.
“I’ve been talking to the BSU coaches for a while then I showed out at one of their camps and things started to pick up more from there. I have been on the campus multiple times and really like the coaching staff and believe it is the perfect fit for me. It’s a dream come true to be able to play close to home at Boise State”
Viewing his film, Ramseyer is often used lining up wide as a wide receiver. He was actually named All-League WR his JR season, which is a nice feat for any pass-catcher, let alone a TE. That kind of ability as a receiver, plus his height, make him a tough matchup for any defense to scheme against. He also shows skilled ability as a blocker and is clearly not afraid to make a hit or key block to help a teammate. Cole and the coaches echo many of these observations.
“I’ve communicated with Coach Riddle and Coach Hill the most. I have a strong relationship with both and really like the way they coach and overall they are just great people. I’ll play however they want to use me in the offense. I think I can create a mismatch on the perimeter and put my hand in the dirt and get down and block as well.”
Cole becomes the 11th verbal commitment in the Boise State 2018 class. He is the 2nd player from in-state Idaho and the 5th offensive pledge. Ramseyer also held offers from Idaho and Montana State. As with many players from Idaho, it appears he was under-recruited and could very well follow in the footsteps of other talented local player who have had solid careers playing on The Blue. He plans to enroll at Boise State early next summer.
