Boise State Finds Its Receiver--Jack Austin

It's interesting how fate works.  One day, Chris Seisay was slated to join one of the top teams in college football history.  Then, he decommitted.  Closed door.  Open door.  In walks Jack Austin and he says that yes, he'd be proud to play for Coach Chris Petersen and the great fans at Boise State.  

Austin joins a Boise State program that holds the modern record for the best 10-year scoring average (42.44 that is the best in college football in 119 years.  Yale (1883-1892) at 46.6 points a game holds the all-time record.  Naturally, wide receivers are a big part of the Bronco offensive game plan and with his solid commitment, Jack will get to experience that excitement first-hand as a member of the Bronco football team.

Boise State, of course, is coming off a four-year record of 50-3, another modern record, and they're landing a lot of great recruits who see all the records being set by the Broncos and want to be a part of it.  Not to mention the six NFL Draft picks from Boise State in the most recent draft.  Austin (6-3, 205) is from Chino Hills High School in Chino Hills, California, and given the large number of Californians on the Bronco roster, he should fit right in.

Austin grabbed 62 catches for 921 yards and rushed 3 times for 51 yards in his junior year.  

Austin chose Boise State over offers from Oregon State, Utah, San Diego State and Utah State and strong interest from Arizona, Arizona State, California, Colorado, Nebraska, Oregon, Stanford, USC and San Jose State.

Welcome to the Blue, Jack!  We look forward to seeing and cheering for you.
