We are coming into the last week of October, which means we have a couple of months until early signing period. Right now Boise State has 10 confirmed commits with one “secret” commit yet to announce. The Broncos are currently #2 in the MW behind Air Force. Now, Air Force has 22 commits, so they are #1 just by sheer numbers. The Broncos have an average player rank of .8375, which is a solid 3-star average. BSU is also currently ranked #92 in the nation; a far cry from our top 50 class last year, but that’s ok. I expect the Broncos to finish #1 in the MW. November and December will be very busy months for the Broncos.
We currently have 19 seniors, though that includes Fesili who could be taking a redshirt. He has only participated in 2 games. We also have the potential for Weaver and Cleveland to leave early. So we could be losing 21 players, meaning we may have 23-25 scholarships with attrition factored in. Meaning we could have room for 11 to 15 more scholarship players. Again, November and December will be busy!

Riden Leong, OT, Orange Coast College (Honolulu, HI)
Leong, listed at 6’ 5” 320 lbs is a MASSIVE get for the Broncos, both literally and figuratively. We graduate a ton of our offensive line this year and could lose Ezra Cleveland to early departure. Leong passed on offers from Iowa State, Hawaii, San Jose State and Liberty to be a Bronco.
