BOISE — Former Leesburg High standout Bryan Jefferson is making a push for a starting job this
spring at Boise State University. With three of Boise State’s top four wide receivers last season gone
from the program and the lone returning starter Cedrick Wilson out with an injury, has given Jefferson
the inside track to start in the Broncos 2017 season opener Saturday, Sept. 2: vs. Troy (ESPN networks).
Jefferson is a redshirt sophomore that sat out in 2015 and didn’t see any action last year due to
injuries. The three-star receiver out of Leesburg, Florida, was a prize recruit that the Broncos landed in
its 2015 recruiting class, and he may finally be ready to start showing his potential out on the field.
“One thing I like about him is he’s still raw at the position, but he can really run,” new Boise State wide
receivers coach Eric Kiesau said. “He can run and get down the field. He has to be a little bit more
consistent with his hands, but I think he is catching the ball well enough right now.
“He has to get better with some technique things we’re teaching him, but with him I think it’s his speed,
his athleticism and the ability to catch the ball down the field.”
Said Boise State coach Bryan Harsin on Jefferson: “So far he’s been really good. He’s made a lot of
improvement and I say improvement just because he hasn’t done much. He’s out there making plays.”
Boise State will return to practice on Monday following spring break. The annual Spring Game is set for
April 8 at Albertsons Stadium at 5 p.m.
