Broncos Score Huge Commit

Boise State received the commitment of Jaylen Johnson today according to the Los Angeles Times.  It is one of the Broncos' biggest recruiting coups in their history.

Johnson (6-3, 235) has been playing linebacker at Centennial High School in Corona, California; some believe he will play defensive line at the next level.  Johnson was named All-CIF and 2nd Team All-State last season after registering 100 tackles and four sacks.

The media "experts" and football fans who believe Boise State is a "mid-major" will be surprised to know that Boise State not only beat out Oregon for Johnson, but that Johnson made his decision to go with Coach Chris Petersen and the Broncos the day after returning from a visit to Oregon.

I mentioned a recruiting coup, and I never use language unnecessarily.  Here's a list of the teams that offered Johnson a scholarship:  Oregon, Notre Dame, USC, TCU, Oregon State, Arizona State, Colorado State and Vanderbilt, plut he had interest from California, Northwestern and Ohio State.  

Jaylen, we are honored to have you coming to Boise to play on the Blue.  Hopefully, you can help the Broncos win a national title during your stay here.
