Cheerio! "Best DE prospect in 10 years" commits to BSU from Jolly ol' England

Heads up Bronco's! In the wake of Amstergate Boise State still continues it's international recruiting success with it's most recent recruit hailing from the United Kingdom. The following story comes straight from the BBC. Notice how they talk about how many "matches" we've won, and how "the American's like to bring them in young to nurture recruits." Also can someone please point out who these so called Japanese players on our team are??? Hmmmm Cornwall's Elliot Hoyte has bright US football future

Hoyte is a former pupil at Tavistock College. Cornish youngster Elliot Hoyte has been described as one of the best young American football players that a top US college has seen in a decade.

The 18-year-old former Cornish Sharks player has been awarded a full scholarship by Boise State University. "They reckon he's the best defensive end prospect they've seen in 10 years," said Brian Smallworth, Hoyte's former coach at the Cornish Sharks. Last season the teenager played for the Bristol Aztecs and Great Britain Lions. He was offered the full athletics scholarship after attending a training camp run by the Idaho-based college and will begin his first term in January, combining sport with a business degree. "It's pretty impressive that this young man who was within the Sharks organisation has been given this opportunity," added Smallworth.

"He's very young but that's when the Americans want them so they can nurture them and tell them how to play," said Smallworth. "They do look at kids from Europe, they've got a few Dutch players there, as well as some Japanese players." Elliot's father Nigel played American football played in the US and represented the London Monarchs in the 1990s. He is now a UK national coach.
