The one thing that the Boise State defense always needs are hard-hitting safeties. All Broncos fans know the names of George Iloka, Jeron Johnson, and Marty Tadman. Well the Broncos added the verbal commit to what is, hopefully, another chapter in that special lineage.
Mr. Roman Kafentzis is a two-star safety prospect, per Rivals, hailing from from Southern California high school Mater Dei. The 6’ 2” 200 lbs Kafentzis comes from a long line of athletes that have represented very well. His father, Kurt Kafentzis, played in the NFL for a bit. And hung out with Boise State head basketball coach Leon Rice while in high school.
Roman Kafentzis' father, Kurt, was on the same high school football team as BSU hoops coach Leon Rice (5, 1st row).https://t.co/9LTct2mVTL— Dave Southorn (@IDS_BroncoBeat) December 14, 2016
Interestingly enough, it appears as though Hawaii football has a tendency to enlist Kafentzis’ for their own squads. No less than five Kafentzis’ have suited up for the Warriors. But not the case for Roman. Much to the fortune of Boise State. Roman Kafentzis was one of the silent commits from Sunday who waited to reveal himself. By my count that leaves one unaccounted for commit.
Take a gander at his highlight reel.
As always, these pledges are non-binding until the recruit signs on the dotted line. Things tend to happen between now and signing day, but always good to have a commitment than not.
