Anthony Drmic, Sr., G/F
Granted a fifth year of eligbility after playing in only seven games last season, Drmic is on pace to become the school’s all-time leading scorer. He had a game-high 23 points in the opener at Montana.
“He’s probably in one of the best places he’s been mentally,” Boise State coach Leon Rice said.
James Webb III, Jr., F
Never miss a local story.
A rocket-like rise to stardom, he played only 13 minutes the Broncos’ first five games. Webb averaged 12.9 points and 9.0 rebounds per game in Mountain West play. He’s played his way into an NBA prospect.
“I know that everybody is watching,” Webb said.
Chandler Hutchison, So., G
Athletic and tall, he will be a matchup problem for opposing guards. He has the ability to fill up the stat sheet on the offensive and defensive ends. He started the final 18 games of 2014-15, during which the Broncos went 15-3.
“That’s kind of what he’s going to be, can kind of do everything for us,” Rice said.
Paris Austin, Fr., G
One of the most highly-touted recruits in school history, the Oakland native has shown some early maturity and ability to run the point. He had six points and two assists in 21 minutes at Montana.
“He’s got that ‘it’ factor where the bigger the moment, he’s going to (play) better,” Rice said.
