As of today, we’re still working our way through the logjam of incoming wide receivers. Seriously, whoever gets the starting QB job better like running the spread option.
#82, Stefan Cobbs, RS Freshman, WR
High School: Fossil Ridge HS (Keller, TX)
How’d he get to The BlueTM?
Boise State got wind of Cobb early, and offered him in September 2017, wrapping up a commitment after his official visit in October 2017. As Cobb missed most of his Junior season due to injury, Boise State managed to sneak him in before his breakout Senior campaign really lit up the scoreboard in Texas.
After his senior season, Cobb was “unanimously selected as the Texas 3-6A All-District Most Valuable Player following a senior season in which he hauled in 67 passes for 1,332 yards and 24 touchdowns...also returned nine kickoffs for a 22.1-yard average, and seven punts for a 7.6-yard average” (as per his Bronco Sports profile). Talk about a touchdown machine.
”Static Shock” according to his Twitter profile, “Bacon Bits” according to me.
Stefan has the easygoing smile of another wide receiver, Emmanuel Sanders. When you factor in how they’re both from Texas and both play for Broncos, it’s positively spooky.
Stefan redshirted for Boise State in 2018, but as Casey dug up last year, the man has his own bobblehead. I’d call that a career highlight.
We’ve repeated ad nauseam how stacked the Boise State receiver corps is, and Cobbs is definitely looking to get in the mix for depth at the position this fall. His versatility in high school allowed him to be a deep threat, consistent slot option, and even return kicks and punts, so the BSU coaches have some options here.
Based on nothing but gut instinct, I’d look for him to back up CT Thomas in 2019, as they have similar builds and strengths. My gut could just be gas, though, so don’t bet on this prediction.
Is he on Twitter?
That’s a solid yes. Dude is a retweet machine, but he’s all-in on Boise State.
Completely made up fact
Despite the shared nomenclature, Stefan does not love Cobb Salads, Fruit Cobbler, or Corn on the Cob.
