Sure, it’s a little early to tell if the 2019 recruiting class will y’know...actually be the best class ever, but on paper we got a good thing going. Boise State finished with the 47th ranked class in the nation, and based on composite score averages, were even higher. The Broncos nearly wrapped their class back on December 19th...a week before the bowl that wasn’t, but had a few loose ends to tie up and buddy, did they ever get tied. The first last commit of the class was gigantic wideout DK Blaylock—a one-time Iowa State pledge who checked Eric Kiesau’s top checkbox, “Be Tall”. I’ll let coach Keyz tell you a bit more about the lanky WR.
Then our neighbors to the south sent us a linebacking gift in Lolani Langi, another big OLB from the Beehive State. The too-early loss of Tyson Maeva made this pickup a must and the Broncos appeared to have knocked it out of the park with the Polynesian Bowlee. Again, his coach can speak to his skill set better than I can, so take it away, Andy...
Lastly, the Broncos kicked it home with a legacy kicker/punter Gavin Wale (cousin of former Boise State punter Sean Wale). I think I speak for Bronco Nation when I say, “please be the one, please be the one, please be the one...” The Coronado (NV) kicker will be Jeff Schmedding’s first project (with an assist from Lee Marks).

Any further walk-ons or surprises that happen through the day...we’ll keep you posted. For now...TO POTENTIAL!
Looks like the Broncos will be joined in the Fall by talented local athlete Tyler Crowe. As far as I know, Crowe is a walk-on (likely of the “preferred” variety). Crowe was the 5A SIC player of the year and Skyview’s (Nampa) all-time leading rusher...including a ridiculous 606 APY game against Meridian last season (457 rushing, 113 receiving, 37 return yards, 6 total TDs and an INT). Crowe played RB and LB at Skyview and definitely has the skills to help anywhere on the field.
