2020 recruiting season has already begun, but that doesn’t mean the Broncos are done adding to their 2019 haul. Earlier this evening, Coach Harsin dropped the rare “Go Broncos” tweet we all crave, but the hashtag told a different story.
No, Harsin didn’t find a way to time travel (it’s the flux capacitor, stupid)—it was just a late visitor who’d decided to join the 2019 class: JuCo transfer Joshua Booker-Brown.
The 6’3” 238 lb ILB will come to Boise State from Pearl River CC (MS) and will be on campus with the other 2019 guys this summer. Booker-Brown’s own mother appeared to be the first to confirm the news after Harsin’s initial tweet.
We been doing this since josh was 4 years old . And I’m so proud of him for completing the next mission . People who doubted my son and turn their back on him . ITS TIME @BroncoSportsFB @thereal4one @247Sports @skhanjr— Stephanie B (@Stephanie000071) May 31, 2019

Booker-Brown will have 3 years to play two and the Broncos hope that he’ll be able to entice his brother to join him—the younger Nick Booker is already a rising DT prospect in the 2020 class (and visited with his older brother last weekend). Booker-Brown came to Pearl River CC by way of UT-San Antonio...where he played as a true frosh in 2017 (hence the available redshirt). As a prep at Westfield High in Houston, Booker-Brown fielded offers from TCU and Iowa State, so he’s definitely not a “way off the radar” guy. As usual, it’d be easier to get an idea of the new addition’s prowess by looking at his highlight tape, which I’ve embedded below for your convenience (direct your eyeballs specifically to the 2:00 mark).
