Boise State football gets D-linemen from England, Canada; Petersen hints at frustration with NCAA penalties

The Boise State football program has added two more imports — both on the defensive line.

Defensive end Elliot Hoyte of Tavistock, England, has accepted a scholarship offer from the Broncos and will join the team in January, according to multiple media reports out of his home country.

Hoyte’s dad, Nigel Hoyte, played in the World League in the 1990s and played in America. Nigel is now a national team coach in the United Kingdom.

Hoyte’s family sent DVDs to several American schools.

“I still wake up in the morning and read the letter they sent me — it still feels pretty surreal,” Elliot Hoyte told the Tavistock Times Gazette. “It’s really the opportunity I’ve been waiting for. I’m really looking forward to it — I’m a bit apprehensive, I don’t think there’s anything I can’t handle from the sporting side, the only thing I think I will struggle with is not seeing my family for such a long time.”

Here are the full stories on Hoyte from the Tavistock Times Gazette and the BBC.

Meanwhile, the Edmonton Wildcats in Canada have announced on their website that defensive lineman Rory Connop (6-foot-4, 265) has chosen Boise State over offers from Kansas, Tulsa and Pittsburgh. Connop is from Edmonton, Alberta.

Boise State coach Chris Petersen, who has not been available to the media to discuss the NCAA penalties announced Tuesday, addressed them on his radio show Wednesday night on KBOI.

“We could talk for days, I’ve got so many thoughts and opinions on this deal,” Petersen said. “But I’ve kind of learned that it’s probably best that I say that we were surprised by it, but we’ll do what we have to do. The one thing I appreciate about this program and our kids is whatever we have thrown our way, we’ll adjust and adapt and we’ll keep rolling.”

Petersen also said that injured left guard Joe Kellogg will make the trip to Toledo as a reserve and injured fullback Dan Paul will not make the trip.

Chadd...

Know the size of Hoyte?

Thx

Hoyte

No. I've got an e-mail into his coach but haven't heard back. Probably won't until tomorrow given the time difference.

According to

http://parkstv.mysmarterwebsite.co.uk/athletes/

6'5" 268 lbs

TY

2 good sized kids recruited for DE. I think that position has "branded" BSU football, in part, and will continue to do so for a long time.

Needed D-linemen

BSU graduating all 4 starting D-linemen, and Root...had committments for 2012 from everywhere on D except line...this is a nice boost. Tough to beat BCS schools....have to outthink them on recruiting trail, and outcoach them during season.

Still need JC Def Tackle

BSU needs to sign a good defensive tackle...same quality as DE Crawford and Nickle Venable.

We have some very good young guys...

but you might be right. I think adding 1-2 JC guys a year is reasonable.

I Told My Brother The

same thing the other day...that I wouldn't be surprised to see a couple of JUCO's next season. They still laugh at that.. well he does, living in Big 12 country.

Wiz...

Im glad youre back buddy. I was so pi$$ed I was like this is worthless. Glad it got resolved.

JL

Thx.
Tread lightly..screws have really tightened. Been a big increase in complaints(not flags) and they're looking. I was at the wrong place at the wrong time..pretty random.
Iz cool

told ya...

It cannot be a 'wake' because nobody is 'dead' but you can always observe the heavy drinking and hollerin' if you want.

That means there is no hope for me. I'd better isolate myself to reading and only saying things like "Good luck" and "Can you provide a link?".

And this

was his junior year......

Big dude.

Big kid

http://boisestate.scout.com/2/1106635.html

According to scout.com he's 6' 5" 270 lbs and the best DE Boise state has seen in the past 10 years.

Hoyte

Hoyte is listed on several websites as being 6' 5" 270 lbs - as an 18 year old.

don't buy him any athletic shoes

that's a no no.

Wild Turkey..What Makes You Think..

I was referring to his foot size? There are other things that need "sized" you know....))

Or any burgers

That would take it WAY over the salary cap!

outsourcing and BSU's contribution to the economic

downfall of America.

BBC news piece about the England import

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/american_football/14730983.stm

Maybe These Imports Are Hosted by A Certain Poster

whom goes by a user ID similar to a "certain type of motorcycle and a dirty type of drinking fluid". That would solve any conflict of interest isuues re a BSU booster/suopporter helping them out.

Just sayin

This stuff makes BSU look so cheap

"Rory is a 2 sport athlete, having played hockey in Edmonton and community football with the West Edmonton Raiders but never played High School Football."

http://edmontonwildcats.com/index.php/news/article/689/

I dunno. I follow BSU football and want BSU to win a Natty to represent all of Idaho.

Seems like BSU couldn't care less about Idaho and is just willing to get whoever from wherever to do what it takes to win.

I am not really that interested in following the playing acreers of kis from Europe or Canada that didn't even play high school football, but are given schollies to use Idahoan's contributed money to educate kids from Europe so they can go back to Europe and compete with Americqns for jobs and such.

BSU looks like nothing more than a bunch of mercenaries with absolutely not a care about if Bronco fans are supportive or not. To heck with the fans, whatever it takes to get contributions of money from the fans and give it away to foreigners.

VNDL

The Moves Are An Obvious Sign, VNDL, That

The New Compliance Director feels BSU has a firm grip on compliance in these scenarios, or they wouldn't be going there. Obviously, not so much in the past.

Wiz

you need to sign every post lazaris.... Welcome back.

VNDL

Last I checked BSU had more than double the Idaho players on their roster than Idaho.

tfunky

Great. That was never a question or part of the debate. Glad to see BSU recruiting Idaho kids. That ios why so many Idahoans wish BSU success and to win a natty - to bring pride and credit to the state of Idaho.

Apparently you have not been following the tenor of my postings.

What is your point?

VNDL

You should have

checked the number of Idaho kids on BSU's roster before posting nonsense. Local high schools are where BSU looks first, they have developed great programs and are producing good FBS caliber athletes. Look at Tanner Mangum from Eagle who was offered by BSU but chose BYU; he won the MVP award at the recent elite 11 quarterback competition. Educate yourself!

VNDL

"Seems like BSU couldn't care less about Idaho and is just willing to get whoever from wherever to do what it takes to win."

This implies the BSU does not recruit Idaho kids, right?

"I am not really that interested in following the playing acreers of kis from Europe or Canada that didn't even play high school football, but are given schollies to use Idahoan's contributed money to educate kids from Europe so they can go back to Europe and compete with Americqns for jobs and such."

Why stop there VNDL, why are we giving schollies to California kids when they could just stay here and compete with Idahoans for jobs. Same with Washington or Texas, really any kid outside of Idaho........

"BSU looks like nothing more than a bunch of mercenaries with absolutely not a care about if Bronco fans are supportive or not."

If BSU looks like a bunch of mercenaries with their 30 local kids, what then does Idaho look like with their 16 locals?

"To heck with the fans, whatever it takes to get contributions of money from the fans and give it away to foreigners."

Why stop there, we have foreign kids on science scollies, math scollies, all kinds of schollies, let's freeze them all out......

Those are my points

Hold On VNDL..

I hear what you are saying but...
Is this different from the millions of illegals here that have naturalized kids on our soil and our systems support them all thru school, including sports?

I disagree VNDL

BSU has a rep for finding players that know one else finds. BSU also has a great rep of taking kids from idaho high schools. BSU also has had several walk ons turn out big. Bottom line is that BSU does this really well and I think it is a great way to be unconventional in a conventional stale and unfair system. You will be cheering these guys on when BSU continues to find diamonds in the rough.

PS
Really!!!!??? I know we all have been a little ticked lately. I posted a lighthearted playful post and NO ONE CARED?
not even a tip of the sombrero? Cmon man lets lighten up the mood a little. Its FALL BSU is playing!!!

FOOTBALL!!!!

P2

BSU should to to Lake Baikal in Siberia where there is a race of men that average 7 feet and over 500 pounds of pure muscle. They are used for logging operations to pull logs in place o horses and machinery.

Why not BSU recruit them and make them into linesmen. It would certainly be unconventional and would result in getting real big boys.

The coaching and management of the Broncos recruiting effort is becoming absurd.

Does naybody have any statistics as to how many foreign playrs are at other BCS schools?

I am curious if BSU is following the herd or is blazing new trail by recruiting kids that didn't play high school fotball but play for 'clubs' with grown men.

VNDL

check yourself VNDL

I know that you are still stinging from the dutch thing and that seems to be your "cause" right now but I think calling BSU coaching and management of the broncos recruiting absured is a tad bit absurd in itself.
BSU has been GENIUS in recruiting. And while this is odd I trust that the success in the past will translate to the future. This is coach petes philosophy and it is bringing us a team that almost never loses. I respect a man who puts as much effort into "teaching" and coaching as other coaches do in fighting for kids the high schools "teach and coach" Can you imagine starting off pure teaching BSU's unconventional play VS a high school kid tainted with the common SEC "run it up the middle" approach.
On a side note. I will be playing #1 singles for BSU womens tennis. I figured if I dont have to be an american and I dont have to even go to the school, then perhaps I dont have to be female......

Ω 7', 500lb "linesmen"??

How big is the ref?

Currious VNDL

Is it ANY person outside of Idaho that you have a problem with. Or are two stones BSU looked under in Prosser ok? How about Helena MT? Or Compton Ca? It seems to me that BSU has success going to places that are unconventional or overlooked. Could it be the foreign connection that has you worked up? Granted I dislike england and canada as well but if these guys come in and bash other teams lines around I'll be the first in line to get an autograph....
There are two thing I cant stand
1 People who are intollerant of other people's cultures.
2 And the dutch.

Sorry Buddy...Wrong

3) U/I
4) Ugly

Recruiting Foreigners

Markus Geiger (Germany), Paul Dittmer (Germany), Eugenio Mannucci (Italy), Bastien Tardy (France) - all current or recent UofI track and field scholarship athletes from Europe, scholarships that could have gone to Idahoans. Add the Canadians and European female athletes and you have a total close to 20 at Idaho. Awarding athletic scholarships to non-Americans isn't unique to BSU.

According to CBS Sports

BSU = 30 Idahoans

Idaho = 16 Idahoans

tfunky

again, you are out in left field.

This has never been about how many Idaho players eac team has.

We are talking about BSU placing great emphasis on recruiting players from Europe.

Please, try to keep up with the conversation.

VNDL

Hyperbole

I hardly think 3 (out of a total roster of 104) and 1 (out of a total 2012 recruiting class of 16) constitutes BSU placing a 'great emphasis' on recruiting players from Europe.

I get the point you're aiming at, but the amount of international players on the roster is insignificant.

I'm out in left field?

"We are talking about BSU placing great emphasis on recruiting players from Europe."

"GREAT"

One recruit out of 16, how in the world does that translate into "great"

You are butt hurt over this for some reason

not butt hurt at all

it just looks like BSU can't compete recruiting wise with other BCS teams for qualityAmerican recruits so BSU is going stumping around Europe looking for large bodies who want a trip to America.

That is how it looks to me.

Kinda cheap for BSU to get involved in any of it.

VNDL
