Boise State football launching in-state recruiting blitz

Posted on April 20, 2014 

Boise State coaches head out for an exciting road trip across Idaho to look for the best and brightest young recruits for Bronco Football. Don't miss the adventure! The Bronco Blitz is on.


Boise State's football coaches will visit every high school football program in Idaho between Monday and Thursday, an effort the program is calling the "Bronco Blitz."

All nine assistant coaches will visit schools. Head coach Bryan Harsin will remain in Boise. Head coaches cannot go on the road during the spring evaluation period, per NCAA rules.

There are 130 football-playing high schools in the state.

The coaches will use social media to update fans, sharing photos, videos and an updated Bronco Blitz map.

Harsin highlights the program's success with local talent in the above video. He mentions Gem State products Randy Trautman, Cedric Minter, Bryan Johnson, Brock Forsey, Korey Hall and Shea McClellin.

"The goal is simple: Make sure the best and brightest talent in this state, football or otherwise, wear blue and orange and don't have to look outside of the state for their college future," Harsin said.

In 2014, eight Idaho high school players signed with Football Bowl Subdivision programs. Two (Chase Blakely of Coeur d'Alene High and Kekoa Nawahine of Rocky Mountain High) signed with Boise State.
