Boise State picked up a big commitment over the weekend by landing four-star DB/WR Jermani Brown out of Midlothian, Virginia. Brown committed to the Broncos over the weekend.
This is the Broncos ninth commit of the 2017 class and is the highest rated player to date for this Boise State class.
He went ahead and updated his Twitter profile with a photoshop of him in a Boise State jersey.
Brown is rated as the 225 player in the country, per 247Sports composite rankings, and chose Boise State over a slew of offers from multiple Power Five conferences.
North Carolina was thought to be his destination by some experts, despite not having an offer, but that was not the case; he also had offers from Michigan State, Utah, Colorado State, Arizona State — where he was previously committed with — Wisconsin, Syracuse and others.
While committing to Boise State was a surprise to the recruiting world, but Brown was always intrigued by the Broncos.
"Boise State has always had my attention,” Brown told Rivals.com. “The biggest deciding factor for me was making sure me and the coaches were on the same page and that we have a foundation to build this four year relationship from."
He also added that he is “100 percent committed to Boise State."
The coaching staff looking out for Brown was another reason he chose Boise State.
"The coaches and the way they sought after me, made me feel this was the best place,” Brown said via 247Sports. “They had the best of my interests at heart," Brown said of what sealed the deal.”
As for what position he will play at the next level it seems that he will play defensive back as he stands at 5-foot-11, and 175 pounds, but nothing has been stated for sure. However, his wide receiving skills could come in handy in a potential role in the return game.
