Boise State fans are clamoring for some quarterback news with signing day rapidly approaching. The headliner right now is Chaminade (Calif.) West Hills quarterback Brad Kaaya.
Boise State remains very much in the game for Kaaya.
Kaaya is committed to Miami but visited Boise State this weekend. He's been reluctant to do many interviews lately but our sources indicate good, not great news for Boise State.
The 6-foot-4, 215-pound prep came to Boise with his mother, which is always key. Our sources tell us the visit went very well and the Broncos are in the mix still. Very much so in the mix in fact.
So here's what's going to happen. For starters, Boise State can't be left without a quarterback in this class. Obviously Stuart is committed, but our sources confirm he has a preferred walk-on spot, not a scholarship.
Boise coaches, namely Mike Sanford Jr. will see several quarterbacks this week and try to evaluate them in person. That list of quarterbacks includes Brock Raggio, whom we feel might be the favorite backup plan. And while it may not be fair to call him a backup plan, that is where its at.
What happens with Kaaya will determine the fate of Boise State recruiting at the position. What I expect to happen is several quarterbacks will be evaluated this week. One ore more will be offered a chance to visit this weekend. That doesn't mean they will get an offer, but rather an offer to visit.
The staff is hoping to use this week to see what will happen with Kaaya. And he is genuinely considering Boise State still. If they get an answer or a better feel from him, they will move accordingly. But the key here is not to get left empty handed with a closing window.
Here is a list of Quarterbacks listed with Boise interest to some degree by most major recruiting sites. This list was compiled by 5-Star member Bronco754, big props to him for taking his time.
