Huge Boise High OLineman has been a fixture on the Bronco sideline when Boise State is on the Blue..

Despite picking up another MWC Offer, local Boise athlete John Ojukwu is becoming a mainstay on the Boise State sideline during home games.

A senior at nearby Boise High School - less than two miles from Albertson's Stadium - John Ojukwu, the massive offensive lineman, has been an unofficial visitor for both Bronco home games this season.

"I got to go to another game," Ojukwu said of attending Saturday's contest against Utah State. "The coaches think I would be a good fit there."

He holds an offer from Boise State, another from Portland State, and was recently offered by Hawaii.

Despite the fact that he resides in the Broncos' backyard, Ojukwu says the coaching staff is recruiting him the same way - and just as hard - as anyone. The 6-foot-6, 285-pound standout remains a high priority for Boise State.

"They send me letters and texts before my games wishing me good luck," Ojukwu said. "I talk with (offensive line) coach (Scott) Huff a lot."

Ojukwu hops to take visits to the other two schools that have offered him, but as of now nothing is set up.

While the Broncos remain in good position to land the under-the-radar recruit, Ojukwu wants to make sure all his ducks are in a row and not rush the decision.

"I want to know what I am going to study before committing anywhere," he said. "I always like to have a plan for anything I do."
