Mark Rypien’s nephew commits to Boise State

BOISE, Idaho — Brett Rypien, a Spokane, Wash., quarterback and nephew of Super Bowl champion quarterback Mark Rypien, has made a verbal commitment to play football at Boise State.

Brett Rypien visited Boise State over the weekend and committed to joining the Broncos for the 2015 season.

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound junior has thrown for just over 8,500 yards and 90 touchdowns in three seasons at Shadle Park High School. It took him 2.5 seasons to pass his uncle Mark’s high school passing record of 4,965 yards in Greater Spokane League games.

Brett Rypien holds the Washington state record with 613 yards passing in one game in which he also threw eight touchdown passes. The TD mark ties Rypien with former BSU quarterback Kellen Moore for second most TD’s in a high school game in Washington.

Rypien says BSU’s coaching staff, facilities and atmosphere helped win him over.
