California wide receiver commits to Boise State football

The Boise State football team continued to reload the wide receiver corps Monday with a commitment from 2016 prospect Derrion Grim of Stockton, Calif.

Boise State was the first FBS school to offer Grim a scholarship. His previous offers came from Eastern Washington and Sacramento State.

He arrived in Boise on Friday, was offered a scholarship Saturday and committed Monday before he left town.

“That was my No. 1 choice of all colleges,” he said. “Since they offered me, I might as well get it done.”

Grim was drawn to Boise State because of the coaching staff, the facilities and the business school.

His mom and dad accompanied him on the visit, which lasted longer than most.

“I just wanted to see if this was really the place for me,” he said.

Grim has played one year of varsity football. He made 35 catches for 637 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, according to MaxPreps. He also played cornerback and returned kicks.

The Broncos added two wide receivers in the 2015 class.
