Boise State football head coach Bryan Harsin unveiled the Broncos’ 2017 signing class Wednesday, announcing the signing of 13 student-athletes to National Letters of Intent.
Of the 13 signees, six are slated for the offensive side of the ball, including three wide receivers. The Broncos also signed quarterback Chase Cord (Peoria, Ariz.), running back Drake Beasley (La Canada, Calif.) and offensive lineman Isiah Moore (Tiffin, Ohio). Moore is transferring from Mesa Community College.
The Broncos signed seven defensive players, including three each at linebacker and defensive back and one STUD. The lone defensive lineman, Aisa Kelemete, played for Highland High School in Pocatello, Idaho.
The five mid-year signees included cornerbacks Marques Evans (Pasadena, Calif.) and junior college transfer Michael Young (Kansas City, Mo.), offensive linemen John Ojukwu (Boise, Idaho).
