Boise State recruit profile: Jeremy McNichols


Evidence of Bryan Harsin's offensive genius can be seen in Jeremy McNichols, a three-star wide receiver destined for a Pac-12 school who flipped a commitment to come to Boise State ... and play running back. What does Harsin have up his sleeve, besides a tattoo of a playcall sheet? McNichols sounds like a dangerous threat with elusiveness to spare - a supersized Shane Williams-Rhodes (which equates to normal size everybody else) or Devan Demas with wide receiver pedigree. How he fits at running back remains an exciting mystery, wrapped in an enigma, wrapped in a touchdown, covered in enchilada sauce. Sorry, that much wrapping makes me think of burritos.

Scouting report


Has some tools where he could be a big play threat. He is solid after a catch because of his strength, wiggle and balance. Has decent straight-ahead speed.

LOFTY wiggle.

Chance that Chris Petersen flips him to UW

Small. McNichols has already flipped once from a Pac-12 schools, and as sharks smell chum, so Chris Petersen catches the whiff of indecision and pounces. Be decisive at Subway, people; you never know who's in line behind you.
