The Broncos football program has been on a recruiting roll of late. They picked up a total of seven verbal commitments this past week, including three defensive players on Friday who pledged to head coach Bryan Harsin and his defensive staff.
Cornerback Reid Harrison-Ducros, 5-11, 175 lbs, is out of Heritage High School, Colleyville, Texas where he had a 4.42 GPA. He had offers from Yale, Louisiana-Monroe, and Texas State before throwing in with Boise State. Last season he allowed just four pass completions, chalked up 50 tackles and had an interception. He is also a track and field star and can run the 100 meters in 11:32.
After talking with my family I've decided to verbally commit to Boise State University!! #GoBlue— Reid HD (@rducros27) June 26, 2015
Also on Friday a pair of California linebackers also decided to throw in with the Broncos. LB Tyson Maeva, 6-0, 225 lbs, of Cathedral Catholic High in San Diego is another three-star recruit and listed by Rivals on their California Spring Top 100 list.

LB/S Desmond Williams, 6-0, 190 lbs, of Centennial High in Corona, California held an offer from Washington State but chose Boise State instead. Well, sort of, anyway. Let's call it a soft-verbal at this point as it appears Boise State is allowing him to reserve a spot on the team while Williams is keeping himself available to better offers.
As a junior for the Centennial Huskies, Williams had 67 tackles, an interception and forced two fumbles last season. Boise State had been recruiting him for a nickelback position since they had seen his athleticism at a minicamp in Corona back in June.
