This one is going to be a bit of a twofer since the first one committed a bit unexepectedly and the second was a silent commit until he was ready.
So we are going to go in the order of when we knew who it was.
The most recent commit we knew about: Kaiden Bennett.
Mr. Bennett commits to Boise State hailing from Folsom HS. He’s a dual-threat QB with a 3-star composite from 247Sports.
Now, you’re thinking to yourself, this is weird. The Broncos already have a QB commit with the likes of a 4-star Hank Bachmeier. And, by all accounts, this is kind of weird. Considering that Bachmeier doesn’t appear to be wavering. So the guess is that the Broncos are trying to “even” out their QB numbers and taking two this class. Bachmeier hasn’t decommitted (yet) so it appears to be all systems go for signing two QBs this class.
Mr. Bennett’s stats are impressive, as a senior he threw for 2,871 yards, 44 TDs, and—wait for it—two interceptions. By all accounts this is an impressive, and dare I say, a ‘good get’.
While you’re hanging out, check out some of Mr. Bennett’s highlights:
Bennett also had offers from UConn, Cincinatti, SDSU, and Utah (among others of course).
As for the second known commit.
Mr. Waleed hails from Arizona. Casteel High School out of Queen Creek. He is a composite 3-star receiver on 247Sports.
The Broncos have been adding even more talent to a loaded receiving corp. Waleed looks to be no different than the previous.
Check out some highlights.
Between his junior and senior seasons Mr. Waleed had 39 catches, 805 yards, and 12 touchdowns.
If you check out Waleed’s offer sheet it’s... impressive. Including but not limited to: Michigan State, Iowa State, Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon, UCLA, and Cal. Seriously check out his list. It’s pretty dang good.
The coaching staff continues to reel in some nice talent. Now to get that to translate to the next level.
As always, these are non-binding verbal commitments. The early signing period opens December 19th. So a little more than a month to go before the vultures have to stay away. Broncos just need to do their due diligence and keep on these guys.
