Boise, Idaho (KBOI) - Bronco nation got some great news over the weekend when Brett Rypien gave his verbal commitment to the program.

The nephew of former Super Bowl MVP Mark Rypien is a record-setting four-star quarterback from Shadle Park High School in Spokane who's ranked among the top-ten pocket passers in the country. If he sticks with his commitment to the Broncos, and it sounds like he will, Rypien will be the highest-rated quarterback recruit in Boise State history.

"It was breathtaking. I wasn't really sure what I was going to think about Boise coming into the weekend, and they really just blew me away with everything. You know, this is the toughest decision I've ever made in my life, and I've lost literally countless hours of sleep over it. I just really felt comfortable with Boise and I'm happy I'm going there now. I'm 150 percent committed to Boise State. I'm not going to take any more visits besides my official to Boise State, and I'm just really excited to be a Bronco," said Rypien.

The Broncos also added West Misquite High School's Akilian Butler to their 2015 recruiting class. The wide receiver tweeted (@AkilianButler6) out his intention Monday afternoon saying, "All in baby, Boise State commit!!! #ATF #Broncos."

Butler would be the second recruit from West Misquite High School. Dylan Sumner-Gardner, believed to be the highest ranked recruit in Boise State's history, joined the Broncos as a member of the 2014 class.
