BroncoCountry.com has learned from sources close to the recruitment, that former Chabot College standout and Gladiator Team Captain Andy Cabianca
will likely be joining the Broncos this fall. As with all players who either sign after LOI day or who are walkons, nothing is guaranteed until they report on the first day of classes.
Cabianca, (6'1 223lbs), who played Strong Safety for the Gladiators for 2 seasons,
is a likely candidate to move to Linebacker for the Broncos.
Cabianca was an All-Golden Gate Conference
DB this past season after a Freshman season that was shortened due to a broken leg after just 7 minutes into the first game of the season.
Despite the odds, he did return to play on the offensive side of the ball for the final 3 games of his Freshman season.
Undaunted by that setback, Cabianca came back last season with a vengence, leading the team in tackles with 74, (nearly 20 more than his nearest teammate), and was 2nd on the team in INT's and Passes Defended. His impressive play included 8 TFL's, 1 FF, and 1 blocked kick.
An All-Area player out of Danville CA's, San Ramon Valley HS, Cabianca was an invited walkon at Arizona State
out of High School, but grades redirected him to Chabot College. Once at Chabot, he quickly became a starter in the defensive backfield before being injured.
Despite misisng nearly his entire Freshman season, Cabianca was named to the JC Grid-wire's Pre-Season All-American
list as an Honorable Mention DB, right alongside new Bronco safety Garcia Day
Despite no scholarship offers following his sophomore season, Cabianca was recruited by Oregon
, Oregon State
, and Louisville
.. among others, yet chose, it appears, to play at Boise State
It is unknown at this time if Cabianca is an invited walkon, or if he will be the recipient of a scholarship upon reporting in the fall.
