DSG Targets Kaaya

It might have been the shocker of the world when Boise Staate won over West Mesquite (Texas) defensive back Dylan Sumner-Gardner on Jan. 4.

Sumner-Gardner has been working on Brad Kaaya.

The nation's No. 83 overall player, per the 247Sports Composite, had been committed to Texas A&M since March. But the decision of Marcel Yates to join the Boise staff gave him a lot to think about.

After the dust settled, Sumner-Gardner said things got quiet. He has yet to step foot on campus at Boise State but that changes this weekend.

"I'm just looking to get up there and meet all of the coaches," Sumner-Gardner said. "I want to check out the academics and get everything locked down. I haven't been to Boise yet so I'm excited to see the weight room and the stadium."

The four-star said he hasn't heard from the Texas A&M staff or anyone else since his commitment to Boise State. But just because he hasn't been recruited, doesn't mean he hasn't been putting in the work for the Broncos.

"I've been talking to Brad Kaaya a little bit lately since I committed," he said. "I met him up at the Opening this summer so we started talking again. He told me he will take a visit to Boise State and he's keeping an open mind. I think he would be a key for our program."

Sumner-Gardner said he was not asked by the staff to recruit him, he felt it was a priority to the future of the program.

Although he is not in football workouts yet, the four-star said he is doing footwork drills and in the weight room.
