Boise State continued an outstanding week of recruiting Saturday when the Broncos added a verbal commitment from Brawley (Calif.) Union High linebacker Casey Kline.

Kline is rated by 247Sports, Rivals and ESPN as a four-star recruit. He's ranked as the No. 20 outside linebacker in the 2019 recruiting class by ESPN and the No. 22 athlete by both 247Sports and Rivals.

"After I visited for the spring game (in April), I kind of knew it was going to be the place I picked," Kline said. "But I wanted to be 100 percent sure, double-checked my other options and got more anxious to commit."

The Broncos added another four-star recruit Wednesday in quarterback Hank Bachmeier.

Among Kline's reported offers were Oregon, Oregon State and Washington State. He had committed to Arizona in October, but decommitted in January after coach Rich Rodriguez was fired.

The 6-foot-5, 215-pound Kline was used in a variety of ways last season as a junior at Brawley Union, about 130 miles east of San Diego. He ran for 537 yards and threw for four touchdowns and had two receiving touchdowns, plus had two interceptions on defense.

For the Broncos, he is being recruited as a STUD end. The Broncos got a commitment from a STUD last month in Alec Pell. Both Pell and Kline visited for Boise State's spring game. Kline tweeted Sunday he was watching highlights of former Boise State STUD end Kamalei Correa, who was a second-round pick of the Ravens.
