Centennial HS DE Jaylen Johnson (Corona, CA) has currently reeled in a handful of offers from schools across the West Coast, including Boise State. Boise State was the first school to extend an offer to the talented DE and he says the Broncos are currently at the top of his list. So, why are the Broncos on top?

"Boise State is my #1 right now," he said. "It's mostly because I feel they're committed to me more as a person and not just as a football player," he added.

"I've been talking to them the most," he stated. "They're also interactive with my mother, trying to get her on-board with Boise State, and they also have programs at Boise State that help develop you as an individual."

"Coach Bhonapha, Coach Avalos, and Coach Petersen are all recruiting me," said Johnson. "I spoke to them last week. They want me to come up and see the school in May and we're trying to plan that now."

He went on to say that physicality and speed are what standout to him when he describes the Bronco defense.

"I really like their physicality at the line of scrimmage," he said. "They have so much speed and just swarm to the ball. I also like how they were first in the nation in scoring defense as well."

"Boise State was the first school to offer me," said Johnson. "That's big. They were the first school to commit to me as an individual out of all the schools in the nation."

Johnson hasn't taken any unofficial visits yet, but says seeing the atmosphere will be big when he visits Boise State and the other schools recruiting him.

"I'm mainly going to look for the atmosphere," he said. "I want to see how I get along with the coaches as well and if it's a place I can see myself living for the next 4-5 years. The overall atmosphere will be important."

So, what does Jaylen Johnson (6'3, 232, 4.63) bring to the gridiron?

"I've been told I use my hands well and have a great motor," he said. "Coaches have also told me that they really like my speed as well," he added.
