Mark Rypien's nephew, Brett Rypien, commits to Boise State Broncos

New Boise State Broncos’ head coach Bryan Harsin got perhaps his biggest commitment since taking over the program on Sturday night when 4-star quarterback Brett Rypien gave his pledge to the Broncos.

Rypien is the nephew of Washington Redskins’ great Mark Rypien.

Scott Enyeart first reported the news.

The 6’2, 185-pounder attends Shadle Park High School in Spokane, Washington.

“I wanted to play out my entire recruiting process,” Rypien told Chadd Cripe of the Idaho Statesmen. “I stuck true to that. … I wasn’t really mad about it. It was one less option.

“I was really blown away with my Boise option. I couldn’t be happier to be a Bronco.”

Rypien is ranked as the eighth best pro style quarterback, the top overall prospect in the state of Washington and 181st best overall prospect in the class, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.

Rypien also had offers from the Arizona State Sun Devils, Illinois Illini and Mississippi State Bulldogs, among others.
