Boise State recruit profile: Jerhen Ertel

Recruiting-rect_medium

In lieu of Jerhen Ertel highlights, I have included a Top Ten of boat collisions and crashes, assuming that being blocked by the 6-foot-6, 280-pound Ertel is a little like being run over by a boat. Ertel has two years to play two years of football, so we best enjoy him while he's around. He is already making the most of his free ride to Boise, enrolling in classes this semester and debuting on the football field this spring. If he finds his way into the starting lineup this fall, he will uphold Matt Paradis's tradition of eight-man football representin', a tradition unlike any other.

Nice of Mario Yakoo to let Ertel wear his jersey.

Scouting report

America's scouting network is too busy to be bothered attending junior college games, so the scouting report on Ertel is a little light. Here's a tidbit from his BroncoSports bio:

Started every game along the offensive line, including at both left tackle and guard.

The man played two positions in every football game. Scouting report: Siamese twin.
