Corral Conversations: Charles Leno
Charles (6'5, 265, 4.9) and two other incoming freshmen from the Bay Area bonded during the summer workouts in Boise. "Joe Southwick is a friend," he said. "We played against each other three times in the last two years. Jonathan Brown is cool too. All of us know that we need to represent the Bay Area."
The recruiting process was quite an experience for Leno and he's thrilled with his decision to become a Bronco. "Boise is all Bronco football and I like that. There are no pro teams. I want to win championships and the coaches just tell you the facts."
It looks like a redshirt season could be in Leno's future. "I'll probably redshirt," he said. "I want to get stronger during my redshirt year. Just get the basic plays down and technique," Leno added.
The Bronco football program has been built by a core of player's with a solid work ethic. Charles brings hard work and determination to Boise State. "I bring work ethic," Leno said. "I like to work hard. I bring athleticism from the OL point of view. I also bring smarts. I'm smart on the field."
Boise State has been one of the most dominant teams of the past decade in terms of win percentage and championships. Leno hopes he can help continue that winning tradition. "I want to accomplish at least three WAC championships," he said. "I also want to be an All-American. I love football and being up there with the top linemen would be great."
Recruits that have flown under the radar have flourished at Boise State and Leno seems himself as one of those guys. "It feels good to be a part of team like Boise State. I'm not sure how to say it but I've never been up there in the rankings. Going to a great team like this and playing for them feels good. You can call yourself one of the best in the nation."
BroncoCountry.com will continue to have updates on Charles Leno as he prepares for his arrival in Boise later this summer.
