University of Idaho Visit

We got a chance to go down to the University of Idaho with Tanner on a recruiting visit.  It was so cool! They offered him a full ride scholarship plus room, board and books to play Division I basketball.  They rolled out the red carpet. We are so proud of you Tanner.

 Tanner getting measured-6'10"
 Tanner was excited because the players can drink all the chocolate milk they want after they lift weights
 New $300,000 weight room for the athletes
 We got a guided tour of campus by coach Murphy and we got to ride in the golf cart. This was Katie and Garret's favorite part.
 The Memorial Gym. It was like walking back in time.  It looked like the Hooser's gym.  Luckily they are getting a brand new gym in 2020!
 We got to watch the players scrimmage while we were there and Tanner got to play with them.

 One of the point guards, Victor Sanders, played one-on-one with Garret after the scrimmage.
Tanner and Scot Blakney, freshman big-man for Idaho. 
 Kirt and Austin Rehkow. Austin is a YM from our stake who played football at the U of I.
