Florida QB Riley Smith Commits To Boise State, Drew Alabama Interest

Bright and early on Thursday morning the Boise State football program grabbed their QB commit for the 2018 class when St. Augustine, FL signal caller Riley Smith pulled the trigger on his future and committed to bleed blue for the next four or five years.

His announcements came at around 6:30 AM MST and expressed his gratitude for all the support he’s received throughout his recruitment from his family, coaches and friends, and his excitement for his decision to attack the future in Boise.

“Thank you everyone who has supported me throughout this process, my family, coaches, and friends. I am truly blessed to be able to continue on to the next level. I am honored and grateful for all of the coaches that have shown interest and believed in me. I am extremely excited to announce that I will be furthering my football and education at Boise State University!”

Smith hails from Bertram Trail High School just outside of Jacksonville and is rated as the #41 pro-style quarterback in the nation, the 157th recruit in the state of Florida, and the 1,076th prospect in the nation in a composite of all the national recruiting services.

This past season Boise State’s newest commit completed 64% of his passes for 18 touchdowns and seven interceptions on a 104.1 QB rating for the 11-4 Bears who finished as MaxPreps 118th best high school football program in the entire nation. Checking in at 6’5″, 215 lbs, he’d be both the biggest and tallest QB on the Boise State roster by seven pounds and three inches.
