On Wednesday, Calvin Pitcher committed to Idaho State.

Pitcher’s commitment serves as a big get for the Bengals. He’s rated as a 3-star safety by 247Sports.

We caught up with the Corona, Calif. native to talk more about the decision to take his talents to Pocatello.

1. What major/degree are you hoping to pursue in college?

I’m going to major in business.

2. Favorite football memory?

Never losing a league game and beating JSerra 56-0 (in 2019).

3. Did you ever visit Idaho State before committing?

Me and my dad drove to ISU in the fall, but because of the dead period, our interaction with the football team was limited but I learned a lot about the school and academics.

4. What stuck out to you about playing at Idaho State?

The fact that it was a FCS program made a big deal to me. Everyone wants to chase that D(ivision I) dream. Although it’s not some big time FBS program, it’s a step up from D(II) and I want to be the first from my family to not go DII.

5. What was the ultimate reason to attend Idaho State?

Free education. I can have my tuition paid for and I can play DI football; it was my best option.

6. If you could talk to one former Idaho State Bengal, who played on the professional level, which player would it be?

The alumn I’d talk to is Jared Allen. He had a great career.
