As I speculated on Thursday, JC QB Thomas Stuart (Butte College) will indeed join the Broncos football team—and quickly—as he tweeted this little more than an hour ago:
Excited to be a Boise state bronco and starting school in the spring #ATF— Thomas Stuart (@Tommyfootball1) January 19, 2014
In this case, "the spring" is this Tuesday. Stuart will have "4 years to play 3" and told the Statesman's Brian Murphy that he'd "pass" on answering whether he would be on scholarship or a preferred walk-on to begin with. We could speculate all day as to why he's choosing to zip it on that particular matter, but apparently it was at the coaching staff's request and likely has to do with making sure we get our 2nd QB (a HS senior) locked in. And look...just as I'm typing that this happens...
Just confirmed with 4-star QB K.J. Carta-Samuels that he's about to fly to Boise for an official visit. Leaves tomorrow. #BoiseState— B.J. Rains (@BJRains) January 19, 2014
He should get the staff's undivided attention. Dance Dance Revolution, anyone?
