A closer look at Boise State's recruiting class

By Brian Murphy

It is National Signing Day and Letters of Intent are being faxed all over the country. Boise State will announce its class later this afternoon.

Chadd Cripe broke down the Broncos' recruiting class by position.

SI.com’s Stewart Mandel wrote that Boise State’s success on the field hasn’t translated into recruiting glory. Mandel says it is largely because of the Broncos’ non-BCS status.

Here is a December interview with Brandon Huffman of Scout.com about the Broncos’ class.
