The 6-3, 289-pound Lewis learned the news during his player evaluation with Bronco offensive line coach Scott Huff "about a week ago", he said.  Lewis started five games for the Broncos last year, and will join center Marcus Henry, guards Mario Yakoo and Steven Baggett and left tackle Rees Odhiambo on the Boise State offfensive line to open the season.
