Brett Rypien spurned his uncle's alma mater, Washington State, to become the highest rated quarterback prospect to pick Boise State, according to the Spokesman-Review.
"For me, it came down to three things I was looking for," Rypien told the newspaper. "I wanted a good coaching staff, good facilities and an atmosphere I could see myself being successful in for four years. Boise State definitely has all of that for me. I was really blown away by their facilities."
Through his junior season at Shadle Park High School in Spokane, Wash., Rypien has thrown for more than 7,000 yards and 46 touchdowns.
