Chris Petersen and Boise State football have added another addition to its 2013 recruiting class.

According to, Andrew Tercek, a center out of East Central HS in San Antonio, Texas, verbally committed to the Broncos on Friday on an unofficial visit to the BSU campus.

ESPN Insider has a quote from Tercek himself just moments after his commitment.

“It starts with Coach [Chris] Petersen,” Tercek said. “Everything that he has accomplished here is incredible. Me and my father just walked out of his office like 15, 20 minutes ago. I know where I’m going.”

ESPN's Craig Haubert calls Tercek a "steal for the Broncos," and describes the Texas lineman in some pretty flattering terms.

..."they are getting a punishing lineman who plays with some nastiness. A tough run-blocker who demonstrates the ability to come out of his stance low and hard and roll his hips on contact and with persistent leg drive, he can push defenders off the ball. He also displays good enough athleticism to play on his feet in space. He needs some refinement in pass protection, but he demonstrates that he can bend, slide and handle double-read assignments without crossing his feet."

Tercek is the fifth commitment for the Broncos' 2013 class. The others are Ryan Finley, a 6'4" quarterback from Paradise Valley HS in Phoenix, Arizona; a couple Fruitland, Idaho teammates in Alec Dhaenens, a 6'3" 230-pound tight end, and Joey Martarano, a 6'3", 215-pound linebacker; and Eli McCullough, a 6'5", 255-pound offensive tackle from Rocky Mountain HS in Meridian, Idaho.

ESPN lists Tercek as a 4-star recruit and the 24th-ranked center in the nation, while lists the Texan as a 3-star recruit with a positional rank of 19. If Coach Petersen can take 2-star recruits and turn them into NFL first-round picks, imagine what he can do with Tercek.
