Boise State quarterback Alex Ogle will be transferring to Arizona Western College in Yuma, Arizona after spending two seasons in the Treasure Valley.
The Palm City, Florida native red-shirted his first year, and had minimal playing time this season. Attempting 2 passes for 5 yards.
Ogle was regarded as the strongest arm on the team, but there wasn’t enough opportunities to showcase his talents with Brett Rypien taking over the quarterback position.

The reasoning behind Ogle’s transfer was what he said “was business,” and wanted to live out his dream of playing as a starting collegiate quarterback.
“I came to Boise to play D-I(Football) and to start, and then to live my dream of playing in the NFL. I gave the school all I had.. They got their guy, and I’m not ok with being a backup. I’m going to take my talent’s elsewhere…
I’ll play JUCO for a year and hopefully get to transfer and play two more years and try to make it, said Ogle.”
Ogle told Coach Harsin his intentions to transfer Saturday, and expressed gratitude for his time as a Bronco.
“Those fans in Boise are unbelievable, all the support at all of our games. How many people filled up the stands, it was amazing… I don’t hold any grudges, it’s just business.”
We wish you the best Alex.
