Darien Bennett, Dylan Cozens choosing between Boise State, lamer teams on Wednesday

New, 44 comments

The last two days have seen a man mountain and former UCLA commit choose the Broncos and an Oregon State offer and two-way all-Oregon lineman pick Boise State. What wonders are in store for the final 48 hours of the signing period?

Well, if reports are to be believed, two defensive ends will make their college choice tomorrow on Signing Day, and Boise State could land both of them.

DE Darien Barrett from Inglewood High in California is expected to announce his decision tomorrow morning, according to his coaches. The choice is between San Diego State and Boise State, so sunshine or inversions, fish tacos or finger steaks, Sea World or Wahooz, the high ceiling of a Poinsettia Bowl or potential national championships. Rivals reported that he had already chosen Boise State. Other sites have him listed as an Aztec. OBNUG is pretty sure Rivals has it right, so we went ahead and posted a welcome FanShot to Barrett earlier in the week.

Barrett is 6'3", 220 pounds and a consensus three-star player. Here is video of him looking tall and fast and intimidating as a stand-up defensive end and all-around QB nuisance.

DE Dylan Cozens from Chapparral High in Scottsdale, Arizona, is the other potential future Bronco who will be announcing his decision tomorrow. Cozens has Arizona, Washington, and Boise State on his mind. The Arizona Republic says that Cozens is leaning toward Boise State since the Broncos were his first offer and apparently called dibs.

Cozens will announce his decision at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow on FoxSportsArizona.com via webcast. Oh, for the days of AOL Instant Messenger announcements.

For what it's worth, Cozens has loads of football potential having only played one year of organized football. That one year was good enough for him to three-star recruit stats, be named the No. 48 DE in the country per Scout.com, and have enough highlights of jacking up quarterbacks to warrant his own YouTube video.
