The offseason for the Broncos’ football team has been busy, and fruitful. While we are enjoying the spring weather that is affording us the luxury of being outside, the football staff has been crushing it on the recruiting trail.
First it was Alec Pell that got the ball rolling with his commitment. Then it was four star-rated QB Hank Bachmeier to lend his verbal to Boise State. But seeing as how the Broncos need to fill out more scholarships, it’s only right that more jump on board the Bronco-train.
And, well, this one is another one of the ‘good gets’.
Mr. Casey Kline, a former Arizona Wildcats commit, is a four star-rated athlete per the 247Sports composite. 247Sports him pegged as an ‘athlete’ but is projected to be a linebacker for the Broncos. He’s also an ESPN 300 athlete.
This is the second four-star commitment for the Broncos this week. Which is... a big deal. The Broncos have been riding a lot of goodwill, and momentum, after the end of their 2017 campaign that saw a MWC title and Las Vegas Bowl win. Not to mention all the free publicity from the NFL Draft with Leighton Vander Esch going in the first round and Cedrick Wilson getting selected in the 6th.
The Broncos have to be excited with all of the new—high quality—talent getting added to the coffers. The Broncos having to replace the recent departure of Breydon Boyd—who was expected to contribute next season—with Tony Lashley is only temporary considering he will only play for one season. The chance to put more talented linebackers in the hands of Defensive Coordinator Andy Avalos is exciting.
While all we can do is sit and speculate about all of these athletes making it to Boise State (December early signing period is still a ways away) we can appreciate how aggressive the coaching staff is in swinging for the fences on these types of recruits. Until then, enjoy Kline’s tape from last year.
