Berger said his only other offer was from Idaho. He said he was waiting on an offer from Washington State, but hadn't been contacted by the Cougars in several weeks. After talking it over with his family, Berger said now was the right time to commit to Boise State.

"I felt like Boise was the right spot," he said. "... I'm in love with Boise."
