This news is from last week, but I didn’t want it to get lost in the shuffle. Fresno State has bypassed the drama and suspense of the quarterback battle and announced senior Jorge Reyna as the starter. It’s not exactly a stunning conclusion, Reyna was a big favorite to win the job, but it’s a noteworthy move by Jeff Tedford. With this situation out of the way, Fresno can focus on improving this summer and fall camp.
Bill Connelly concludes his tremendously well-done preview of the Mountain West with his power rankings. Seriously, you won’t find a magazine this summer as thorough as Bill’s previews. No stunning revelations in this power rankings. Boise State comes in at #1 having returned a ton of talent on defense, and just generally being the most talented team in the conference. Fresno, Utah State, San Diego State are next up in that regard, each having a few more questions marks than the Broncos.
Paul Myerberg cannot quit the Broncos. In his post-spring top 25, the Boise State Broncos are the only Mountain West team to feature, noting the Broncos depth at wide receiver and on defense being the key factors despite an unsettled quarterback position. Rankings, previews...the end of the college football off-season isn’t super off anymore.
To say that Malik Henry was a big-time high school football prospect would be a huge understatement. Once the #5 ranked players overall, Henry has fallen a long ways from that glory. He’s attempting to build his way back as a walk-on at Nevada. Is he a sleeper to blow up in 2019?
Boise State defensive end Curtis Weaver and offensive lineman Ezra Cleveland will be juniors for the Broncos this upcoming season, but don’t let that distinction fool you: it’s the worst kept secret on campus that barring injuries, these two players are likely NFL bound in 2020. Dave Southorn details why that is the case.
