The Rams have done it again. While high school athletes get the bulk of attention on signing day, there are a few exceptions. Nate Craig-Myers is one such exception. The former four-star talent that left Auburn in September is headed for Colorado State. Once again, Mike Bobo finds another freak wide receiver.
Well then. Our boss Matt Brown coming through with the big take, although one with evidence behind it. It’s rare to see four-star recruits (blue chip recruits) play for Group of Five programs. Boise State landed FIVE of them in this smallish class (Broncos do not lose many players going into 2019) in quarterback Hank Bachmeier, running back George Holani, outside linebacker Casey Kline, running back Keegan Duncan, and junior college tight end Austin Griffin.
There was, however, one more high school four-star recruit bound for a Mountain West program not named Boise State. Wide receiver Jalen Cropper will play for the Fresno State Bulldogs after signing with them on Wednesday. This is the final comment on coverage of recruiting not done by us because I can sense Mike giving me the stink eye.
Nevada is feeling salty
Dixon on not having Nevada in his top 5: “I called every school to let them know of my decision last week — Some took it well and others didn’t. Nevada asked me not to use their logo in my top 5, so I respected that.” pic.twitter.com/lUIspvl5sr— Nevada Sports Net (@NevadaSportsNet) December 19, 2018
Colorado State football staff is happy
