Andrew Pint Commits to Boise State

I had heard speculation about this a week ago but wanted to confirm it. Andrew Pint, a linebacker for Valor Christian High School in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, has commited to play football for Boise State.  Pint went to the Bronco Football Camp in June and fell in love with the school and the city.  He was offered a scholarship following the camp and now, he's a Bronco!

Pint plays mostly inside linebacker at Valor Christian.  Pint has good size already (6-2, 219) and had offers from UNLV and Northern Colorado but increasing interest from Air Force, Iowa, Kansas, Kansas State and Colorado.  Pint has squatted 450 pounds and lifts just short of 300 in the clean.

Pint recently returned from a two-week trip to Uganda, where he helped build a medical facility, worke with young children and helped distribute food in Kampala, the capital city.  This is the third year that Pint has participated in the project.

Pint is the second of three linebackers the Broncos plan to get in the 2012 Recruiting Class.  He is the 12th high school senior to commit to the Broncos already.
