This is part five of a multi-part series where we here at Blue-Turf.com will take a closer look at the Boise State 2017 recruiting class. Blue Turf recruiting analysts will breakdown Boise's recruits position by position to help us learn more about these newest members of the Bronco family.
Boise State has lost its fair share of coordinators and position coaches in recent years, but never one as late as Scoff Huff’s departure to Washington in early March. That accompanied with the loss of three starters along the offensive line, it hasn’t been the smoothest of springs for the big men on offense.
Travis Averill, Mario Yakoo, and Steven Baggett are the notable graduates that won’t be back next season. While those could prove to be big losses, the offensive line is a position Boise State has recruited well in recent years. Archie Lewis and Mason Hampton are returning starters, and John Molchon stood out as a redshirt freshman in 2016. Redshirt freshman Ezra Cleveland won scout offensive player of the year, a distinction rarely given to an offensive linemen.
