Boise State Gets Two More Commitments

Read the exciting news below!

The last five days, Boise State football has been about the hottest thing going in the country.  In those five days, the Broncos reeled in four outstanding commitments, the latest two being wide receiver Julian Carter and offensive lineman Ezra Cleveland, ballooning the list of Boise State commits for the 2016 recruiting class to eight.

Both players announced their decisions on Twitter.

Carter, a 6-3, 190-pound senior wide receiver from Saguaro High School in Scottsdale, Arizona, announced yesterday that he wants to play on the Blue, becoming the latest in a long line of Broncos from Scottsdale.  The three Fiesta Bowl victories by Boise State in Scottsdale no doubt has had quite an effect on those players. 

Carter caught 47 passes for 693 yards and 7 touchdowns for highly-regarded Saguaro.  Julian visited Boise State's campus about a month ago and instantly fell in love with the campus and the program.   

Carter chose Boise State over current offers from Colorado State, Nevada, New Mexico, New Mexico State, Hawai'i, South Dakota State, Hawai'i, and Idaho, and interest from BYU, Utah State, and San Jose State.

Ezra Cleveland, meanwhile, had planned on making his choice later in the year, but his senior season just got a lot easier by calling Boise State and announcing his decision. 

Offensive line coach Scott Huff made a great impression on Cleveland and the two have built up a good rapport.  Cleveland made an unofficial visit to Boise in April for junior day.

Cleveland, a 6-6, 300-pound star from Bethel High School in Spanaway, Washington.  He is big and powerful, but also quick enough for some schools to consider putting him on the defensive side of the ball.  Cleveland has built a reputation for being a powerful blocker with a nasty attitude on the field.

Cleveland had offers from Oregon State, Washington State, and Hawai'i when he got on board with the Bronco express.
