After visiting Bronco Stadium on Saturday for the Blue and Orange Game, 2014 signee Jeremy McNichols is committed to being the best Bronco he can be, not just throughout his time in Boise, but as soon as this upcoming season.
"I just want to come in and do the best I can," said the 5'10", 195-pounder who was a wide receiver during his junior season at Lakewood (Calif.), but then moved to running back last season with the Eagles and will continue that at Boise. "Obviously, playing time would be great, but we'll see."
McNichols is dedicated to improving the burst that had him running away from the competition last season. He hasn't timed a 40-yard dash since his freshman year, but he's running the 100m and 200m to stay in shape during the offseason and was clocked at 11.27 in the 100m at the Trabuco Hills Invitational on April 5.
He's also working out with former USC defensive back John Walker at the FASTER Sports Performance facility after school three days a week with fellow 2014 commit, Verbum Dei defensive end Jabril Frazier.
McNichols isn't just thinking about his time at BSU, he's also looking ahead to his post-graduate life. He plans to major in either business or sports medicine.
"Long term, I want to get my degree," he said. "Football is great, but I have to think about the rest of my life too."
The versatile back originally chose Utah, but switched his commitment when head coach Bryan Harsin was hired. He's more concerned with the future than the past.
"I wasn't recruited at all by Coach Petersen, but that's fine" he said. "Everything works out how it's supposed to. I'm just ready to start the next step."
