"A friend e-mailed me yesterday and asked if Tyrone Crawford was still with Boise State. I replied, "Yes, Crawford’s still on the roster. Why?" The friend said he was just surprised he hadn’t heard anything about Crawford, the Broncos’ lone junior college transfer. That changed later in the day when Petersen raved about the 6-4, 275-pound Canadian from Windsor, Ontario. "He’s as big and strong and fast as anyone we have right now," said Petersen. "Just getting him dialed into our schemes—we’ll see how long that takes." Boise State had been recruiting Crawford heavily in high school (that’s how the staff discovered Michael Atkinson), but Crawford had to go the JC route at Bakersfield College because of academics. The Bronco staff stayed on him (and Crawford never wavered), and he appears ready to pay some dividends."
