NCAA Football: Boise State at Fresno State Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

I realized yesterday that I had left Khalil Shakir off the recruiting roundup last week. WHAT WAS I THINKING?? Also, as I understand it, the Broncos lost a head scratcher yesterday. Let’s not talk about that here though.

Let’s check in on the future Broncos.

Andrew VanBuren, RB, Caminade HS (West Hills, CA)

Andrew earned Mission League Offensive Player of the Year honors after running for 1,259 yards on 224 carries for 22 total TDs. That’s good for 5.6 yards per carry. His final stat line in the loss to Orange Lutheran was 15 carries for 40 yards. A final highlight video for AVB has not been posted yet.
