In an absolute shocker of a twist, Boise State's lone QB commit for the 2016 class, Micah Wilson, is committed no more. Wilson had been committed to the Broncos since April, well before tossing 56 TDs and leading his Lincoln Christian (OK) team to the state championship. Furthermore, Wilson had reportedly all but "shut down" his recruitment and turned a host of suitors away as he stayed true to his word and stuck with the Broncos. Last weekend, Wilson visited The Blue with other prized commits and prospects and seemed "all in", but the loss of his primary recruiter, Eliah Drinkwitz, may have caused his eyes to wander—or maybe he just got an offer he'd been coveting...and it would appear that is the case and that offer was Mizzou—an offer too good to refuse because apparently, Micah's father played there.
I just committed to MIZZOU! All glory to God! I've always wanted to be a Tiger! #MIZ pic.twitter.com/XcXbP4N4pR— Micah Wilson (@micahwilsonqb3) January 22, 2016

In happier times...five days ago.
Very grateful for Boise State and Coach Harsin, however I have decommitted. I have nothing but respect for the coaches and program.— Micah Wilson (@micahwilsonqb3) January 22, 2016
No idea where this leaves the Broncos as it is rather uncharacteristic for QB commits to waver this late in the process (and most the top guys have already committed elsewhere. The Broncos will have to go back to the drawing board with no 2016 QB and may end up in another Alex Ogle situation (Ogle just transferred by unhappy coincidence). Just goes to show you...guys are never really "our guys" until they've signed and reported for Fall Camp. Stay tuned for more info when it comes.
