The Boise State football team is looking to add some depth at its skill positions this offseason, starting with Wednesday’s early signing period. The Broncos got a boost Tuesday afternoon in powerful running back Danny Smith, from Oxnard (California) High.
Smith, who transferred to Oxnard from Morrilton (Arkansas) High, rushed for 1,610 yards and 20 touchdowns this season in nine games, adding nine receptions for 180 yards. Smith (5-foot-11, 205 pounds) also had offers from San Diego State, Hawaii and New Mexico, according to 247Sports.com.
Boise State also has a commitment from Andrew VanBuren of Chaminade Prep in California at running back. Arizona running back Zidane Thomas decommitted earlier this month.
