Boise State has shown this season it will be in dire need of playmaking wide receivers sooner than later with senior Cedrick Wilson graduating.

On Sunday, the Broncos nabbed their third commitment for the 2018 class at the position in less than two weeks in Billy Bowens, a 6-foot-1, 175-pounder from Redlands (Calif.) East Valley High.

Bowens had about a dozen offers, including BYU, Colorado State, Nevada, UNLV and Utah State. He has 36 catches for 769 yards (21.4 yards per reception) and has 10 touchdowns this season.

The Broncos picked up commitments from junior college receiver John Hightower and Texas prep receiver Stefan Cobbs on Oct. 25 and 28, respectively.
