One day at a time. Now with 36 days left!—S Semaj Verner

#36, Semaj Verner, RS Freshman, S

Stats

Height: 6’

Weight: 188 lbs.

High School: Mayfair HA, Lakewood, CA

How’d he get to the Blue™?

By being good at football, and smart! He was a three-star recruit out of high school per ESPN, 247Sports, and Rivals. Mr. Verner had plenty of offers to tout: Colorado, Oregon, USC, and Arizona State from the Pac-12. Pennsylvania and Princeton from the Ivy League and then a bunch of Mountain West schools. The brains won out again!

Nickname

“James”

It’s all I can see now.

Look-a-like

Michael nailed it last year. Mos Def.

Career Highlights

Still has yet to get a highlight in a Boise State uniform. Couldn’t find any stats for some reason but looking forward to filling in more here.

2021 Prospectus

The Safety position is, shall we say, competitive going into the fall, with the likes of Agent Zero JL Skinner part of team leadership, Tyreque Jones coming into his senior year. Verner getting his chance to make the field is going to be an exciting one. He’ll get his time on the field but how much, we shall see.

Is he on Twitter?

He does! But he isn’t an avid tweeter.

Completely made up fact

In his spare time Verner loves to watch old reruns of Bob Ross shows and paint happy little trees. Verner is a veritable Renaissance Man.
