Chase Cord, a 6-3 quarterback from Sunrise Mountain High School in Peoria, Arizona, has committed to Boise State, according to his Twitter account.

Cord chose Boise State over Utah, Colorado, Oregon State, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa State, Harvard, Princeton and Columbia, among others.
Cord tore up defenses last year by passing for 2,286 yards and 33 touchdowns and running for 933 more yards and 12 TD's to lead Sunrise Mountain to an 11-1 record last fall.

The commitment of Cord allows him the possibility of redshirting this fall and being able to take the reins from current Bronco quarterback Brett Rypien when he graduates after the 2019 season.  The Broncos have a home-and-home series scheduled with Florida State in 2019 and 2020 and against Oklahoma State in 2018 and 2021.
