2016 Boise State Recruit Roundup: November 29th, 2015

Each week we will take a look at how the current commits did in their final season of high school football!

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Well, the regular season is officially over. Not the season many expected, but honestly not that bad. If an 8-4 regular season is a bad year, I'll take it. Many, many teams would love to have had winning seasons since 1997. For a little perspective, some of the younger kids WERE NOT ALIVE the last time the Broncos had a losing season. Perspective! And, despite all of the downs, records were set this year. So fear not my dear Bronco fans. Things are not as bad as they may seem.

Most of the future Broncos have finished their final high school season, so some of the info may be a repeat from last week. I'll try and include season highlights if they are available. I'll be doing a who will be replacing who type of an article in the near future.

Nick Crabtree, TE, Huntington Beach HS (Huntington Beach, CA)

Nick's stats for the year are pretty misleading. He finished with 8 catches for 72 yards and a touchdown. Some players will get that in a game, let along an entire season. But, the Oilers seemed to have abandoned their passing game very early in the season, so most of Nick's time was spent blocking for his running backs. While we all like to see all the yards and all the touchdowns, that isn't the whole story, especially for tight ends. The silver lining to the few passes thrown his way was much needed experience in the blocking phase of the game. This will pay dividends to Nick once he hits the Blue as we have still been waiting for the next Schouman, who, according to Kevan in his 2012 article, is the best tight end we have had at Boise State. He was just an all-around great TE, and while we have had many good tight ends since, many have either been better receivers or blockers, but never excelled at both. I think Nick could very well fit the Schouman mold and could be very well rounded once he arrives next summer.

Damarea Crockett, RB, Little Rock Christian Academy (Little Rock, AR)

The Warriors had a rough outing against Pulaski Academy Friday in the Centennial Bank State Football Playoff Semi-Finals on Friday, losing their first and final game 42-7, finishing 12-1. Crockett accounted for 71 yards on 18 carries. The Warriors had a total of 87 yards of offense...yikes. Final stats for Crockett have not yet been updated, but once those are available, I'll make sure to post them.

Tyson Maeva, ILB, Cathedral Catholic High School (San Diego, CA)

The Dons lost their 2015 CIF San Diego Section Semi-Final game against Helix on Friday 42-14, ending their season at 7-5. Final stats for Tyson have not been updated. It is still showing he has played in one game, which is not correct. Looks like Tyson had surgery on the 23rd of November, which leads me to believe he did not play in the loss. Here's to a speedy recovery for Tyson!

Reid Harrison-Ducros, CB, Heritage High School (Colleyville,TX)

Reid's season finished a little over a week ago with a loss to Mansfield, leaving them at 5-6. Reid had a stellar year for the Panthers. On offense, he had 5 receptions for 194 yards and a TD. He had 5 kick returns for 88 yards and 4 punt returns for 82 yards for a total of 170 kick return yards. On defense, he finished with 64 tackles, 1 interception, 13 passes defended, 2 fumbles caused and 2 fumbles recovered. Let's hope we can hold on to him for a few more months as I have heard some B1G teams were after him. Highlights below are from his final playoff game against Mansfield.

Desmond Williams, OLB, Centennial High School (Corona, CA)

The Huskies handled Mater Dei on Friday, winning 42-36 and punching their ticket to the finals. The Huskies are 13-0 and ranked #2 in the state AND nation. Their opponent? Nationally ranked #1 St. John Bosco. It will be a tall order for Centennial, but if anyone can handle SJB, its the Huskies. Stats for the game are not yet available. Good luck next weekend Desmond!

Ezra Cleveland, OT, Bethel HS (Spanaway, WA)

Ezra finished the year with 6 carries for 33 yards, 44 total tackles, 16 tackles for loss and 4 sacks. A very respectable season for Ezra. Offensive lineman stats aren't kept and Ezra was recruited as an OL, which will be much needed. Our OL struggled this year AND we lose our most senior lineman. He will now work to prepare for life on the Blue!

Julian Carter, WR, Saguaro High School (Scottsdale, AZ)

Saguaro completed their season on Friday, beating Marcos de Niza in the 2015 AIA State Football Championships 38-20. They finished 12-2. Final complete stats for the game could not be found, but Carter had at least one catch for 38 yards and a TD in the win. Carter finished his final season with 37 receptions for 550 yards and 6 TDs. Congratulations Julian!

Robert Mahone, RB, Prosper High School (Prosper, TX)

Robert ended the season with 125 carries for 761 yards (6ypc) and 10 TDs. He also had 17 receptions for 173 yards and 2 more TDs. That's 934 APY and 12 TDs. Sounds like a pretty solid season to me! I'm excited to get Robert on the Blue next year. We'll have a STACKED backfield for sure.

Kole Bailey, OT, Twin Falls High School (Twin Falls, ID)

Stats for offensive lineman are not kept, but as I stated with Ezra, Kole will be a huge asset to the Broncos with Henry, Odhiambo and Ertel graduating. Kole is now preparing to graduate early and join the team in just two short months to begin his career as a Bronco!

Robert Lewis, CB, Hawkins High School (Los Angeles, CA)

Robert ended the season with 41 total tackles, 1 interception, 1 fumble cause and one recovered. He also had 66 APY on offense. He will now prepare to finish high school and join the Broncos next summer.

Chase Hatada, DT, Rocklin High School (Rocklin, CA)

Rocklin handled Antelope HS 55-35 on Friday, moving on to the 2015 Sac-Joaquin Section Football Playoff Championships against Del Oro on Friday. Stats were not available in the win. Interestingly, Rocklin beat Del Oro in Loomis this year 28-3. It will be an interesting rematch for sure. Good luck this Friday Chase!

Micah Wilson, QB, Lincoln Christian High School (Tulsa, OK)

It looks like the Bulldogs quarterfinal match against Sulphur was moved to this coming Monday. Last week, LCHS beat Idabel 64-14 to reach the quarter finals. Should the Bulldogs win, they will face 13-0 Jones in the semi-finals. Good luck Micah!

Ali'i Niumatalolo, ILB, Broadneck Senior High School (Annapolis, MD)

Broadneck lost their semi-final match against Howard 35-24, ending their season at 10-3. Stats could not be found in the loss. Final stats for Ali'i have not been updated, but once they are I will post them.

Derriyon Shaw, DE, Legacy High School (North Las Vegas, NV)

Shaw finished his senior season with 43 total tackles, 12 tackles for loss, 6 sacks and 4 fumbles caused. He will be a welcome addition to a senior-heavy DL. If Correa sticks around, I imagine Shaw would red-shirt with Perez coming off a red-shirt and Frazier back for his sophomore year. We'll have to wait and see what happens!

Joel Velazquez, K/P, Trabuco Hills High School (Mission Viejo, CA)

Listed at 6'0 and 220 lbs, he's a big kicker, and a big leg to boot (snicker). Trabuco Hills had a rough season, finishing 3-8. His senior season, Joel had 56 punts (yowzers) for 2,206 yards, an average punt of 39.4 yards with a long of 72 and 18 of them inside the 20. He had 54 kickoffs for 3,073 yards, an average of 56.9, a long of 69 and 41 touchbacks. He made all 35 PATs and went 6 for 9 on field goals with a long of 41. Very respectable numbers. With Rausa entering his final year soon, and Blake Gonzalez into his sophomore year, we definitely need some moldable talent behind those two.

Cedrick Wilson, WR, Coffeyville CC (Coffeyville, KS)

I'd like to welcome Cedrick to this list. He committed last week, but I left my computer when I went out of town. Obviously I am not clairvoyant. Listed at 6,3 and 190lbs, Wilson is a welcome addition to a WR corp losing SWR. Sperbeck will also be entering his final season and we need more threats at the position. While Anderson has played well for us, he's been a little up and down and is more of a downfield threat. Wilson will provide more of a possession, big body role for the offense. According to Kevin Hiatt's Scout article, Wilson had 66 receptions for 1045 yards and 17 TDs, impressive for just his second year at WR. Also noted in the article, Wilson has a knack for stepping up in big games. Welcome to the Blue Cedrick!

3 future Broncos still remain in the hunt for high school titles and one has already claimed theirs! Congratulations again to Julian and the Sabercats on their championship win. Best of luck to Micah, Chase and Desmond as they try and close out their season with wins. GO BRONCOS!
