Feb 2009 review of the 2008 Recruiting Class.

Posted on: February 12, 2009 11:20 pm
 

O - Skill Positions

  • WR Chris Potter
    No impact as a True Freshman.  Some buzz around campus.  Could see time in 09.
  • TE Chandler Koch
    No impact as a True Freshman.  No news.
  • QB Drew Hawkins
    Walk on.  Scout Team Offensive POTY.  May see rare field time in 09 in the right package.
  • WR Drumgoole
    Did not come to Boise in the end.

OLine

  • OT Tom Swanson
    No impact as a True Freshman.  Little buzz for 09.
  • OT Fariji Wright
    No impact as a True Freshman.  Little buzz for 09.
  • OG Joe Kellogg
    No impact as a True Freshman.  Little buzz for 09.
  • OG Bernel Myers
    No impact as a True Freshman.  Little buzz for 09.
  • OG Bronson Durant
    No impact as a True Freshman.  Little buzz for 09.
    Note: 2008 OLine recruits still need time to develop.  While I haven't heard much buzz around the campus any of these guys, I suspect that one (maybe two) of them will break into the lineup during 09.

DLine

  • DT Greg Grimes
    No impact as a True Freshman.  Getting plenty of buzz for the 09 season.
  • DT Darren Koontz
    No impact as a True Freshman.  Little buzz for 09.
  • DE Spencer Gerke
    No impact as a True Freshman.  Little buzz for 09.

DB's

  • MLB Byron Hout
    Hout saw plenty of playing time in '08.  But not at the MLB spot I expected, at DE.  Was a major contributor, but due to several DLine injuries.  We'll see if he gets the same kind of playing time in '09.  And if it's still at the DE position.
  • WLB Daron Mackey
    No impact as a True Freshman.  Little buzz for 09.
  • CB Jamar Taylor
    No impact as a True Freshman.  Little buzz for 09.
  • CB Raphiel Lambert
    No impact as a True Freshman.  Little buzz for 09.
  • S Tyler Jackson
    No impact as a True Freshman.  Little buzz for 09.
  • S George Iloka
    WOW!  Who expected the kind of year Iloka would have last year.  Left HS early to try and make an early impact, and dang if he didn't!  Will likely be a 4 year starter now.  Still has lot's of room to improve!!!
  • S Tommy Smith
    No impact as a True Freshman.  Little buzz for 09.
