Boise State Recruiting: Signing Day Aftermath

Just like Christmas, Signing Day has come and gone. All the preparation and excitement seemingly gone in an instant. What do we do now?

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

If you are like me, you're probably suffering from a mild case of PSDD: post-signing day depression. It's that funk you feel after signing day has come and gone and you're not quite sure what feels to feel, but none of them are really joyous. Nay, they are quite the opposite: angst, hangriness, and possibly a little gassy. You're bummed that college football is over and you more or less have to wait roughly 7 months before witnessing it again. Well hopefully we can help you get through that a little bit this off-season with some Boise State recruiting. It'll be sparse, yes, but I'll do my best to fill your life with the light and joy that is Bronco football.

No, not THAT Bronco football, but that was pretty awesome if you ask me. We'll chat about the upcoming potential recruits for the 2017 class. But first, if you didn't follow along on signing day, make sure to pop over to our Signing Day Megathread to get a recap of who we did sign as well as some highlights of the players. Oh, and let's not forget another former Bronco is back on the staff!

All right, back to recruiting. Yes, it is VERY early in the process, so all of the names being tossed around here need to be taken with a grain of salt. And for this particular article, we aren't going to dive too deep into the info.

There are probably a TON of more names to add to this list, but this is what was available on both Scout and Rivals. Some kids might have snuck in who were committed elsewhere, but it is so early in the game that those commitments sometimes require asterisks.
