The Broncos have added to the coffers of verbal commits tonight. And, as usual, Coach Bryan Harsin threw up the commit signal (I think it’s pretty cool looking).

With each announcement of these things, it is up to (or at least it should be) the commit to choose how he wants to ‘out’ himself. Good thing for us antsy fans, this particular commit decided to reveal himself in short order.

Mr. Ben Dooley is a big get in the literal sense. At 6’ 5” 279, he is a three-star OL per 247Sports (that’s their ranking by the way, they don’t have a composite up yet) and he’s going to be a welcome addition to the Boise State offensive line.
Dooley is a multi-sport athlete who is also a grappler, and a thrower to go along with the whole ‘being good at football’ thing.
Dooley also had several other offers with California, Washington State, San Diego State, and Nevada.
As always, these verbal commitments are non-binding (on either side). But we can still certainly feel the excitement when a player pledges his services.
While we wait for some football this weekend, let’s check out some of Dooley’s highlights.
