It’s finally here, Bronco fans. It’s National Signing Day and that means today you can finally stop worrying about USC stealing our recruits and start worrying about our commits arriving on campus in one piece this summer. This year—like last year—Boise State has been kind enough to allow us an inside look at signing day as the faxes start to fly. We’ll be covering the proceedings all day long from the Bronco bunker on campus and at Big Al’s for the big NSD show this evening. There are sure to be a few surprises and hopefully none of them have to do with Left Shark signing...he’s been a complete liability at corner. Without further ado, let’s dive right in...and keep your refresh button at the ready, this one article will house all of today’s news and views.
Here are the low-hanging fruit that are already signed, sealed, and delivered to Bronco Nation. Last season, Cedrick Wilson was one such commit...and the year before that, Brett Rypien. They might not get the fanfare of guys still planning for prom, but don’t forget these dudes.
Rest of the rest
So proud of these young men! They embraced and trusted the process and I'm so excited for their future! Congrats to everyone signing today! pic.twitter.com/WhuPtqisDF— Coach Ellis (@SMHSCoachEllis) February 1, 2017

Coach Harsin about Tyreque Jones' recruitment. Spilled some gumbo on his shirt. pic.twitter.com/r6VdYYXP9Z— OBNUG (@OBNUG) February 1, 2017
First kinda bad surprise of the day (actually from last night) is that apparently BIG Queen Creek (AZ) O-lineman Mike Young will not be signing today due to some grade issues. He’ll be attending a JuCo instead and hopefully will remain in the fold ala Tyrone Crawford.
Important! Coach Harsin says that when they visited LB Breydon Boyd in Texas, the first thing he wanted to show them was his knife collection.
OBNUG is behind the blue curtain
Coach Harsin confirmed that Sonatane Lui has been put on scholarship. Also...this fella
