Look, we know he’s probably not gonna wear #96, but he doesn’t have an official jersey number yet. On the plus side, OUR MARCH TOWARDS KICKOFF CONTINUES!

#96, KHYHEEM WALEED, FR, WR

Stats

Height: 6’3”

Weight: 190lbs

High School: Casteel High (Queen Creek, AZ)

How’d he get to The BlueTM?

A 3-star recruit, Waleed fielded offers from a litany of Power 5, G5, and even an Ivy League offer from Yale, but he eventually decided on Boise State. Word on the street is Eric Kiesau RECRUITING GAWD made a connection, and Khyheem wanted to get onboard with him.

Nickname

”Special K”

Look-alike

He may not be a dead ringer for him, but he’s damn sure taking style tips from Russell Westbrook.

2019 Prospectus

With an embarrassment of riches at wide receiver, the coaching staff might have the luxury of redshirting Waleed to save some firepower for the future. Getting a year to get into college shape and learn from the depth available this season might just make Waleed the secret sauce that the 2020 season needs.

Is he on Twitter?

You betcha. Not super active right now, he’s been grindin’ for the season.

Completely made up fact

Used to practice for route running by chasing down lizards in the desert like Rocky Balboa, and is the current Arizona state record holder for “fastest unassisted lizard capture” (previously held by Chase Cord)
