Boise State has confirmed to Press Tribune that the group of early arrivals have been officially enrolled and have started taking classes and will be available for spring practice. The group includes linebacker Tyler Gray who had previously committed to Hawaii, tight end Hayden Plinke who grayshirted last year, defensive lineman Elliot Hoyte all the way from England, defensive lineman Demarcus Lawrence, tight end Connor Peters as well as highly touted quarterback Nick Patti from Orlando.
The guys were shorthanded as their second leading scorer, Kenny Buckner, did not make the trip as the university is working with the NCAA on an academic eligibility issue. Colorado State was lights out from the field hitting 48 percent and 56 percent from beyond the arc en route to a 66-55 win. The guys are off until Saturday when they take on TCU in Ft. Worth.
You know, if that whole NFL thing doesn't work out for him
Dr. Saturday is wrapping up his superlatives lists and the TCU upset made number 6 on his list of the best games of 2011. Awesome.
Happy Birthday to current player Joe Kellogg. Hope all your wishes come true today!
