College of the Siskiyous LB Myke Tavarres (Weed, CA) verbally committed to Arkansas back in August, but the recent coaching changes has him looking around at other schools. The talented LB took an official visit to Arizona last weekend and will visit Boise State this weekend before making a final decision within the next week or two.

"The Bielema hire was a complete surprise," he said. "I don't think anyone thought he'd be the guy. I'm really in the air right now. I think he's a good coach and I'm sure he's a good person, but it takes a lot to compete in the SEC. I thought they'd bring in a coach with a bit more of an SEC-type background."

"I still consider myself an Arkansas commit," he said. "At the same time, I'm open to other schools because of the coaching changes," he added.

"I took a visit to Arizona last weekend and I'll be at Boise State this weekend," he stated. "I thought the Arizona visit was real good. I really got a chance to sit down and go in-depth with the coaches. They had a really good season this year and showed a lot of improvement. I enjoyed the visit a lot."

Boise State sent LBs Coach Bob Gregory down to the College of the Siskiyous on Monday for a quick visit with Tavarres.

"Coach Gregory came down on Monday," said Tavarres. "I felt I really connected with him. He's easy-going and was able to answer all of my questions before I even asked them. I thought it went really well."

"When I first transferred here, Boise State was one of the schools that spiked my interest," he said. "I'm eager to get up there and check it out. Obviously, I'll be at looking at the coach and player interaction, how they coach the players, and the overall atmosphere."

Originally from Oregon, Tavarres says he has family friend's that live in the Boise area. They will accompany him on the visit.

"We have family friend's that live in Boise," he said. "They've had nothing but positive things to say about Boise and I think what Coach Petersen has accomplished at Boise State speaks for itself."

He went on to say that he would like to graduate this month and enroll for the spring semester.

"I want to get there for spring ball," he said. "To be able to get there for spring ball will be a big advantage for me and allow me to learn the scheme, get to know the coaches, and find my classes."

So, what does Myke Tavarres bring to the gridiron?

"The #1 thing I hear is they like the speed, power, and energy that I bring to the game," he said. "I'm always giving full effort," he added.
