Former Boise State football commitments Ryan Griswold and Greg Gaines committed to new schools over the weekend.

Griswold, an 6-foot-5, 255-pound offensive tackle from Texas, picked TCU, he confirmed in a text message to the Idaho Statesman.

Gaines, a 6-foot-1, 290-pound defensive tackle from California, picked Washington, his dad confirmed in a text message to the Idaho Statesman. Head coach Chris Petersen and most of his assistant coaches left Boise State for Washington this off-season. Gaines is the third former Boise State commitment to commit to Petersen and Washington.

The Broncos added a commitment from junior-college quarterback Tommy Stuart on Sunday.

National Signing Day is Feb. 5. Several players, including safety Dylan Sumner-Gardner and Stuart, are expected to enroll at Boise State this week.
