For the fourth time during fall camp, the Boise State football team has placed a walk-on on a full-ride scholarship.
The latest is redshirt junior safety Skyler Seibold, which the team announced Friday in a video posted on its recruiting Twitter account. In the video, Boise State coach Bryan Harsin grabs the public address microphone at a team bowling function at Big Al’s in Meridian.
“I’d like to turn your attention to Lane 10, where we have all-time record with 256 points, and on full ride scholarship: Skyler Seibold,” Harsin said.

Seibold (6-foot-1, 210 pounds) hails from Temecula, Calif. He is a key special-teamer, making eight tackles the last two season. He played in the first five games of last season before an injury ended his year.
Six total players have been put on scholarship this year, tied for the most since 1998.
