Broncos nab two JC linemen

STATESMAN STAFFFebruary 2, 2014 

The Boise State football team picked up commitments from a pair of junior college defensive linemen Saturday, helping add depth to a position of need.

Fullerton College (Calif.) defensive lineman Antoine Turner and Contra Costa College (Calif.) defensive end Rondell McNair's commitments were announced within an hour of each other by their respective schools. Turner could not be reached by the Idaho Statesman, but McNair confirmed his commitment via text message.

Signing day is Wednesday. The Broncos also have two known commitments from high school defensive linemen.

Turner is listed at 6-foot-3, 265 pounds on the Fullerton roster, while McNair is listed as 6-4, 255. Turner had six sacks and 13.5 tackles for loss last season, and McNair had six sacks and eight tackles for loss.

Boise State has only one upperclassman on its roster at either the defensive end or STUD positions. Of the other five, four are sophomores and one is a redshirt freshman. Turner could play inside or on the end, while McNair is expected to be a defensive end. Both will be juniors next season.
