Boise State’s Bryan Harsin on recruiting new players
Recruiting never sleeps, and even with a vast majority of Boise State’s 2019 signees in the fold for at least four months, the Broncos added another Friday.
Josh Booker-Brown, a 6-foot-3, 238-pound inside linebacker from Pearl River (Mississippi) Community College, committed to the Broncos’ 2019 class and will be on campus this summer.
A Houston native, Booker-Brown played last year at Pearl River and will join Boise State as a junior with a redshirt year available. He had 41 tackles in nine games in 2018, to go with two sacks and three blocked kicks. He played in seven games in 2017 at the University of Texas at San Antonio.
Booker-Brown visited last weekend, along with his brother, Nick, a high school senior-to-be and defensive tackle who picked up a Boise State offer. Booker-Brown also had interest from TCU and Iowa State out of high school.
Boise State has some unknowns at linebacker because senior-to-be Tyson Maeva was dismissed from the team after the season and weakside linebacker Riley Whimpey is recovering from a torn ACL. Junior middle linebacker Benton Wickersham was put on scholarship in January.
