According to The Seattle Times, Rypien Rypien said Boise State’s coaching staff, facilities and atmosphere helped win him over.

Brett Rypien holds the state record with 613 passing yards in a game where he also threw six touchdowns. He’s 6-foot-2, 185 pounds and has thrown for over 8,500 yards and 90 touchdowns in his high school career.
