After 2013 recruit WR Jack Austin flipped his commitment from BSU to Cal – Boise State was in need to fill the whole. Tanner Shipley, a distant relative of NFL receivers Jaxon and Jordan Shipley, switched his commitment from BYU to Boise State.
Shipley explains his decision to switch to Boise State.
“Boise State has always been the school I’ve dreamed of playing since I was young so when I got an offer from them I knew I’d probably end up committing.”
Shipley being a Bronco fan since he was young makes his commitment so much better.
A Bleacher Report article lists Boise State’s top five threats in the MWC next season. They rank the best competition in order:
- San Diego State
- Utah State
- San Jose State
- Air Force
Do you agree or disagree? I found it interesting that San Jose State is so high on their list, and Fresno is not on the list at all. Leave us a comment and let us know what you think!

With the Mountain West Championship game being scheduled on December 7th, BYU and Hawaii were forced to cancel their series in 2013 and 2014. The two teams were scheduled to play on December 7th.
San Diego State got an official visit from the #1 rated linebacker, Reuben Foster, on January 29th. Jeremy Mauss talks about why he believes Foster is taking the visit:
“However, the reason why he is taking a visit is because his high school teammates two-star wide receiver Christian Cumberlander and three-star offensive tackle Maurice Swain are also taking a visit to the Aztecs. Plus, who wouldn’t want a free trip to San Diego.”

This report says that Foster’s decision is now down to three schools and SDSU is not one of them. Bronco Nation, you can breath now.
Despite taking a visit to Mississippi State, 4 star recruit Zack Greenlee is likely staying with Fresno State.
“Fresno State fans probably freaked out when their prized recruit, four-star quarterback Zack Greenlee, took a last minute official visit to Mississippi State over the weekend. However, the news since his weekend visit has been silent, even when checking the subscription recruiting sites, nothing.”
