Broncos pick up commitment from big Texas receiver

NCAA Football: Poinsettia Bowl- Boise State vs Northern Illinois Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

With just 3 days left until National Signing Day, the Boise State staff is scrambling to fill out their class with future stars. Yesterday afternoon, the familiar commitment beacon was lit not once, but twice by headman Bryan Harsin but no positive ID was to be found before bedtime. Now, close to 24 hours later, it looks like one of the two commits has emerged from obscurity, and it’s quite the late grab for the Broncos.

Center High School (TX) wide receiver Octavius Evans opted not to keep Bronco Nation in the dark any longer and verified his commitment moments ago:

The 6’2” 198 lb. receiver chose the Broncos over offers from Mississippi State, Texas Tech, and Oklahoma State, among others and is a consensus 3-star recruit according to the usual recruiting service suspects. Evans had over 3,200 career receiving yards in a very competitive landscape and should be able to come right in and vie for playing time. There’s a lot to like about Evans film (below) and he already possesses a nice frame without needing gamma radiation. Welcome to the Bronco family, Octavius.
