Boise State recruit profile: Zavior Hoxie

New, 5 comments

Recruiting-rect_medium

Zavior Hoxie is good enough, smart enough, and doggone it, people like him. How else can you explain eight offers from FBS schools, half of which came from the BCS ranks? If what you read on the Internet is true, Hoxie took official visits to Wisconsin, Wake Forest, Illinois, East Carolina, Arkansas State, and Hogwarts School of Magic, and the Badgers were in it to win it right up until the end. That Hoxie had some ties with Arkansas State likely helped in his being wooed away from the Deep South to the Inversioned Northwest. He committed on his official visit one weekend ago after being told that, yes, the sun does indeed exist in the Boise universe.

Chance that Chris Petersen flips him to UW

None. Hoxie's recruitment has none of Chris Petersen's fingers on it, unlike the Boise State trophy case that Petersen made a point to touch all of before he left.
