How are Boise State coaches spending their summer vacations? On the road, living out of Hertz rent-a-cars, and bouncing from football camp to football camp. What a life!
The recruiting infinity loop marches on. Here are five potential future Broncos making noise this month.
LB - Chans Cox - 6'3", 230 pounds, Blue Ridge HS, Arizona
The four-star linebacker listed Boise State in his top seven along with Arizona State, Notre Dame, Nebraska, USC, Arkansas, and Washington. That's a pretty lofty list for the Broncos to be competing against, but I suppose that comes with the territory when you're chasing the No. 58 overall prospect in the country and a kid who plays linebacker this well:
He had originally planned a visit to Boise State for the Broncos' junior day this spring, but the ACTs got in the way. Priorities. He may set up a visit this summer or an official visit in the fall.
OG Cameron Hunt - 6'4", 255 pounds, Centennial HS, California
Hunt earned O-line MVP at the NIKE Oakland camp (prize: free cuts in the lunch line) and is now on the minds of a lot more schools. In particular, he is waiting to see what USC, UCLA, and Stanford decide to do about him. For now, Cal is his No. 1 with Boise State close behind.
LB Cameron Judge - 6'2", 215 pounds, Oaks Christian HS, California
Boise State's fascination with people named Cameron (too much Modern Family maybe?) continued just this week when the Broncos gave Judge an offer. The four-star linebacker prospect has no fewer than 15 offers, according to Scout.com. Most every West Coast school of note is on his list and for good reason: He tackled 113 people during his junior year, including eight quarterbacks. Here are some highlights:
C Brad North - 6'3", 280 pounds - Allen HS, Texas
It's not too often that you see a pure center prospect (most centers are guards who get tricked into playing center), and North is one of the good ones. He is Rivals fifth-best center in the 2013 class and the only one of the Top Five yet to make his decision. Boise State sent in its offer a few days ago, and North's other suitors include fellow Big East newbie Houston, as well as worse-than-Boise-State teams Northwestern, Wake Forest, and Washington State.
DT Ben Bradley - 6'3", 314 pounds - Hutchinson JC, Kansas
One of the best D-line prospects in all of junior college football, Bradley is high on the Broncos and reportedly paid a visit to Boise State last month. He committed to West Virginia out of high school before going the JC route where he starred for Hutchinson last year with 39 tackles and a sack from a nose tackle position where job number one is getting blocked by two or more people. It helps that Bradley is a large person.
High on his priority list is a school that offers him both the chance to play right away and the chance to go to the pros. Sounds like Boise State to me.
- WR Sebastian Larue - nothing to report
- RB Pierre Cormier - still at large
- SS Tyler Morris - committed to San Diego State
- DE Ebenezer Ogundeko - has 30 offers, still high on Boise State
- CB Cameron Walker - no news
