Official Recruiting List

Just pretend he's signing with BSU

The Broncos' 2008 recruiting class is official, and it looks pretty good. Listening to Coach Peterson's press conference, he sounds happy with the new players coming in. The team did not use all of its scholarships, so there is still some flexibility down the road. The list is absent a quarterback, which is how the Bronco staff planned it all along. Also, Thaddeus Brown is not on the list, meaning he has joined a growing list of players to de-commit after giving BSU a verbal. At any rate, this looks like a great class--big offensive linemen, talented linebackers, and lots of depth in the secondary and wide receivers.

Here is the list of newcomers:
