Only one day over a fortnight remaining for our countdown! Today is day 15, and we will be highlighting...
#15 Jake Constantine, RS Freshman, QB
Height: 6’ 1”
High School: Adolfo Camarillo High School, Camarillo, California
How'd he get to the Blue™?
Jake Constantine got to The Blue by way of an unusually late verbal commitment. Some might remember that prior to adding Alexander Mattison and Jake Constantine in that recruiting cycle, that the Broncos had verbal commitments from one Damarea Crockett and Micah Wilson at running back and quarterback, respectively. Unfortunately, both of them were poached late in the process by an SEC school whose name we do not speak. Suffice it to say their mascot is a tiger, their colors are gold and black, and (most importantly) we hate them. Anyway, the short version is that Crockett and Wilson bailed at the last second and the Broncos had to scramble to fill two, huge holes in their recruiting class, and actually somehow ended up with what appeared to be upgrades at both spots.
I could explain, but I’d rather just display the trailer from one of the most underrated movies ever.
All-around funnyman, Rob Huebel from ‘The League’ and ‘I Love You, Man’
As a senior in high school, Constantine was only 12 yards short of a 4,000 yard season, to go along with 51 touchdown passes and—wait for it—72% pass completion percentage! Them’s some good numbers.
Jake Constantine is the Speaker of the House for the Boise State football team. I say that because, based off the order of succession (aka the depth chart) released to the public for the fall, he was listed as the 3rd QB behind Rypien, but then also behind Cozart now as well. With that in mind, it would be a less-than-ideal scenario that would make it possible for Constantine to see the field this year. That said, if it ever came down to it, the kid has skills and he’s where he is for a reason. There’d be some growing pains but with the current trajectory of graduations, he very well could be ‘the guy’ sometime in the next two years.
Is he on Twitter?
He is indeed, and recently leveled up apparently
Thank you for all the birthday wishes! Greatly appreciated and blessed for you all— J const (@jakeconst8) August 7, 2017
Completely made up fact
Jake Constantine is actually a reincarnated form of Constantine the Great. He came to this era and place in order to hunt down and eliminate a fellow Roman hiding in time, in order to restore balance to the time/space continuum. His quarry? Justinian Jessup.
