How'd he get to The Blue™?

Ravon was just about to take a preferred walk-on spot at Washington State when Boise State gave him a jingle and offered him an opportunity to walk-on as well. He jumped on it

Nickname

“Poe”

Quoth the Ravon, “Bring it on.”

Look-a-like

Dr Dre

Career highlights

Compiled 60 catches for 1,000 yards and 8 TDs in 2 years at Modesto. Named to the all-Valley Conference team after a 37 catch, 486 yard, 2 touchdown season in 2016.

Threw for 332 yards and 3 TDs and rushed for 32 yards on 6 carries as a senior at Lincoln. As a junior, he caught 22 passes for 409 yards and 4 TDs, earning him all-league honors.

2017 prospectus

There is always a chance a player can see the field. Hard work and consistent effort is always recognized. Currently, Ced, Modster and Richardson top the depth chart with Jefferson, Cottrell and Butler behind them on the depth chart. There has also been talk of Octavius Evans and Cartrell Thomas potentially seeing the field this season.

Ravon will certainly have his work cut out for him, but a a preferred walk-on, the coaches saw something in him. They might redshirt Ravon due to him having a red shirt available as well as potential depth ahead of him. A season on the scout team could be beneficial for him to learn the system. I am sure we will see him during drills at the scrimmage today, so keep your eyes peeled!

Is he on Twitter?

He is and he’s ready.

Completely made up fact

Ravon perfected his TD celebration while growing up. He calls it “The Slammer”.
