With Boise State football’s spring practices wrapped up and graduation coming next month, two Broncos have decided they will not continue their playing careers.

Offensive linemen Isiah Moore and Austin Dixon will graduate in May and do not plan on suiting up next season, a Boise State spokesman confirmed. Moore would have been a redshirt senior in 2019, and Dixon a redshirt junior.

Moore was a highly-touted recruit out of Mesa (Ariz.) Community College and one of the Broncos’ top 2017 signees. He had offers from Arizona and West Virginia, among others. He redshirted that fall, and played in five games last season at guard.

Dixon is a Tempe, Ariz., native that signed in 2016. He made his Boise State debut last season, appearing in four games. Both Moore and Dixon were expected to be backups, as Boise State returns its five linemen who started a majority of 2018’s games.

In addition to the two offensive linemen departing, redshirt freshman walk-on defensive end Isaiah Grover has left the team.
