Linebacker/defensive lineman Sam Whitney, who visited Boise State over the weekend, announced Monday on Twitter that he has accepted a grayshirt offer from the Broncos.
Whitney (6-foot-3, 230 pounds), who is from Folsom, Calif., will join the team in January 2016. He previously had committed to Sacramento State.
