This countdown is flying already. We’re on day 90 and I couldn’t be happier. I hope you all are enjoying it a bit more this year. I know I am. Let’s check in on Scale Igiehon.
#90, Scale Igiehon, Junior, NT
Height: 6’ 2”
Weight: 308 lbs (+8 lbs)
High School: Del Valle High School, Del Valle, TX
How’d he get to the Blue™?
Scale was a 3-star prospect on 247Sports and passed on a lengthy list of suitors, including Houston, Purdue, UCF and Tulsa to name a few.
I really liked this one from last year, though I’m biased.
I’m sticking with Darius McCrary
Scale played in all 14 games last year, starting 2. He had 38 tackles with 3 tackles for loss. In his career as a Bronco, he has 61 tackles and 6.5 tackles for loss.
With the graduation of Sonatane Lui and Emmanuel Fesili, the nose tackle position belongs to Scale. Keegan Freeborn will be in the mix, but I fully anticipate Igiehon to run the show. I could see Obichere working himself in the mix as I anticipate he will slide into nose tackle rather than defensive tackle. I guess that remains to be seen.
Scale has shown he can be incredibly disruptive inside and will command double teams for sure. I think I speak for everyone when I say I’m excited to see Scale leading the line.
Is he on Twitter?
He is, and while this isn’t from Scale’s account, he can throw some iron around...

Completely made up fact
As you can see from the video above, Scale is strong. So strong, in fact, that he would sometimes squat the entire rack; weights, bar, platform, everything, and not realize he was doing it. What is shown in the video is his warm-up.
