Boise State recruiting update: Who's in, who's coming, and who's left to get

Signing day will be here in three weeks, and assuming none of you all want to be surprised with who Boise State got this year, I think it's best that we review what the Broncos have been up to recruiting-wise over the past several months. This year's recruiting class, as per usual, is loaded with some talented players and more than a fair share of Texas kids. The only thing missing really is someone decommitting from Idaho to join Boise State. There's still time.

Here is a look at the incoming recruits so far in the 2012 Boise State recruiting class:

Name Pos High School State Height Weight Rivals Scout ESPN
Nick Patti QB Dr. Phillips FL 5.11 185 3 3 72
Shane Rhodes WR Klein Collins TX 5.7 160 3 3 73
Chaz Anderson CB Loyola CA 6 175 3 3 74
Armand Nance TE Andy Denakey TX 6.2 230 2 3 73
Steven Baggett OG Martin TX 6.3 255 2 3 75
Devan Demas RB Cypress Creek TX 5.9 165 3 3 76
Donte Deayon CB Summit CA 5.10 165 3 3 77
Jack Fields RB Americas TX 5.10 200 3 3 75
Ben Weaver OLB Klein Collins TX 6.1 225 3 3 79

Chanceller James S Steele Canyon CA 6.3 195 3 2 76
D.J. Dean ATH Eagle ID 6.1 190 2 2 73
Demarcus Lawrence DE Butler County CC KS 6.4 250 3 3 JC
Connor Peters TE Laney CA 6.4 245 NR NR JC
Sean Wale K La Habra CA 6.3 175 NR 2 74
Rory Connop DT Centennial AB 6.3 255 NR NR 75
Elliot Hovte OLB Travistock College UK 6.5 270 NR NR 45

Thanks to's ranking addiction, we know that the Broncos currently have the No. 57 recruiting class in the land and the top class in the Mountain West among teams that will be in the Mountain West after July. With 19 recruits verbally committed to coming to Boise State next season, the Broncos still have a chance to improve on that No. 57 ranking, which is important to some people even though it's really a made-up number.

Keep your eye out for these names in your Statesmans and Press-Tribunes in the coming days:

  • CB Ryan Santos - Boise State commit Ben Weaver's high school teammate at Klein Collins HS in Texas
  • DT Aaron Curry - Three-star big body from Fossil Ridge HS in Texas
  • DE James McFarland - From West Monroe HS in Louisiana; also considering TCU (gross!)
  • FB Johmel Charles - From Dominguez HS in California; yet to be offered, according to the Internt
  • CB Diamonte Wiggins - Three-star corner from Lynwood HS in California
  • LB Jeremiah Allison - Three-star outside 'backer from Susan Miller Dorsey in California
  • CB Alphonso Marsh - Four-star corner from Dominguez HS in California; seems to be favoring Utah and Washington
  • CB Anthony Standifer - Decommitted from Michigan and now interested in going to pretty much every school
  • S Kenny Iloka - Brother of George Iloka

There are sure to be other names of prospects that are on Boise State's radar. Fill me in by leaving a comment on this post.

So now that we've covered who's coming and who's on the radar, let's take a look at what positions might be left for Boise State to target. Here is a breakdown by position of who the Broncos have signed, sealed, and almost delivered:

1 2 1 2 2 2 3 2 2 1 1

And here is a look at the breakdown of Boise State's positions by class:

Sr - 3 3 1 7 3 2 3 2 1
Jr 1 1 3 1 3 6 1 2 2 -
So 1 - 1 1 1 2 1 1 3 1
RFr 1 3 3 2 3 3 2 1 2 1
Fr 1 2 1 2 2 2 3 2 2 1

Conclusion: Get more offensive linemen and/or turn some running backs into offensive linemen.
