Florida LB To Attend Junior Day On The Blue

Bishop Kenny HS LB Bobby Wolford (Jacksonville, FL) is still looking for that first offer, but he's not a "lightly" recruited prospect by any stretch as schools coast to coast plan to observe him during the May evaluation period. One of those schools just happens to be Boise State. He spoke to BroncoCountry.com about his interest in Boise State and his recruitment thus far.

Kenny HS LB Bobby Wolford (Jacksonville, FL) is still looking for that first offer, but he's not a "lightly" recruited prospect by any stretch as schools coast to coast plan to observe him during the May evaluation period. One of those schools just happens to be Boise State.

"Coach Gregory is recruiting me from Boise State," he said. "They started recruiting me a couple months back. I sent them my film and they really liked it. They then invited me up for their Junior Day, so I'm going up there in two weeks for that. They told me the Junior Day was only for the top prospects, so that was pretty cool."

"They have a great tradition. That's probably what stands out to me most about Boise State," said Wolford. "You know, they've been in a non-BCS conference and have shown that they can compete. That's something I'd like to be a part of and I'd love to improve my game under a coaching staff of that caliber."

Boise State, Stanford, Vanderbilt, Boston College, Syracuse, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Arkansas, and Princeton have all shown some strong interest in the talented LB. He also took a weekend visit to Boston College and just got back a couple days ago.

"I had a great time up there," he stated. "I got to talk to Coach Spaziani and really the entire coaching staff. They told me I'm on their list and they plan on sending out some more offers after their spring evaluation. The campus was incredible and is just 10-15 minutes from downtown Boston. Based on what I saw at practice, I think BC will be real good this year."

Wolford says playing time and tradition are at the top of his list as he evaluates all the schools recruiting him.

"The #1 for me has to be playing time. I want to see which school can offer me the most playing time," he said. "Tradition is definitely #2 for me. I'd say academics is #3 since I want something I can fall back on."

The 2010 season was a breakthrough year for the Crusaders as they won their first division title in over thirty years. In 2011, Wolford says it's time to take it up a notch.

"We finished 7-4 and won our district title for the first time in like thirty-two years," he said. "We had a very young team and are expecting more success this year with seventeen starters returning. Anything less than a state title is no good, in my opinion. We won't settle for anything less."

What does Wolford (6'2, 220, 4.75) bring to the gridiron?

"I can run sideline-to-sideline," he said. "I have very good range and can make a play from anywhere on the field," he added.
