Tyler Rausa of Riverside (Calif.) City College committed Thursday night when Boise State offered him a scholarship, he said Friday. It was his first scholarship offer.
They said that they just need a guy to come in and compete for a spot, Rausa said. I havent earned it, but a guy like me who will come in and be consistent inside of 45 (yards). Theyre not looking for a huge leg. They want someone to just be himself, to not be overwhelmed by the crowd or the situation. A guy who will work hard and do what he has to do.
Rausa a freshman from Temecula, Calif., who has four years to play three seasons at Boise State is 12-of-15 on field-goal attempts this season with a long of 48. He made a game-winning, 40-yard field goal in overtime two weeks ago.
He made 19-of-22 field goals as a senior at Vista Murrieta High in 2011.
