Boise State's season is underway and that means that the senior seasons of next year's Broncos are also in full swing. Each weekend from now until the end of the high school season, I'll be checking in on some of the Broncos' 2011 recruits to see how they're faring. After the jump, we'll drop in on a few of the Bronco verbals (non-binding till February, yadda-yadda).
Running back recruit Jay Aayi continues to be a force in 4A Texas football. Last week, I reported that Ajayi had rushed for 548 yards and 11 TDs for Frisco Liberty High School after playing the equivalent of 2 full games for the Jayhawks. Well, Ajayi kept up his blistering pace on Friday, rushing for another 265 yards and 3 TDs in a win over Carrollton Newman Smith High. If you're keeping score at home, Ajayi now has 813 yards rushing on the year through four games and 14 TDs. Ajayi is averaging 10.05 yards/carry for the 4-0 Redhawks.
Pearland (TX) DE recruit Samuel Ukwuachu has been a two-way star for the Oilers this season and continues to make just as many headlines with his wide receiver play as his play at defensive end. On Friday night, Ukwuachu hauled in a game-winning 42-yard touchdown reception in the waning seconds of Pearland's game against Clear Springs. Pearland is also 4-0 on the season.
Midlothian (TX) CB Eric Agbaroji has racked up 14 tackles, 1 pass breakup and 2 blocked field goals for the 2-2 Panthers.
Safety commit Taylor Loffler continues to impress for the Kelowna Owls as he passed for 326 yards and 4 TDs in a losing effort Friday against Port Coquitlam.
De La Salle star Blake Renaud, a Bronco linebacker commit, may have broken his foot in an epic clash with in-state rival Bishop Gorman on Friday night. Despite the injury, Renaud played the entire game and racked up close to a dozen tackles in the win.
QB commit Jimmy Laughrea ran for three touchdowns and passed for a fourth Friday night to lead Rocklin High to a 35-6 victory over Ponderosa Friday night. Laughrea set the tone for the evening with a 72-yard TD run on the Thunder's first play from scrimmage. Through the first five games of the season, Laughrea has passed for 1142 yards and 9 TDs with just 3 interceptions. He's also rushed for 188 yards with another 5 TDs coming on the ground.
Through the first four games of the season, Cosumnes Oaks (CA) D-line commit Robert Ash has 23 tackles, 2 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and a blocked field goal.
