Boise Watches Raggio

Boise State continues to look for a quarterback in the 2014 class. Tommy Stuart has committed, but will be a preferred walk on with the team.

The staff has spent the week looking for a quarterback in case things don't work out with Brad Kaaya who continues to think things over.

This week Boise State offensive coordinator Mike Sanford Jr. watched Reno (Nev.) Galena quarterback Brock Raggio throw. Since then UCLA has also followed up to watch the late-blooming quarterback.

What did Boise think of the 6-foot-3, 200-pounder?

"I think I did pretty good, I might have pressed a little," Raggio said. "He (Mike Sanford) said I have a really good arm and they really liked me. He said I could really push the ball downfield and I have a big arm."

The plan is to continue evaluating quarterbacks through the week and potentially invite one for an official visit this weekend.

UCLA also watched Raggio throw and echoed a similar sentiment. However the Bruins aren't really in the market for a quarterback.

"They (UCLA) loved my arm. They really liked me a lot and they seemed like cool guys."

Raggio is working on shortening his throwing motion and his footwork. He's also garnered attention as a pitcher in baseball. He missed playing last season due to a shoulder injury but could have a big Spring if he plays.
