In the aftermath of losing JC QB Rathen Ricedorff, Boise State may just have upgraded..

Boise State has been in scramble mode since recent JC-Transfer QB Rathen Ricedorff was lost to the team due to an undisclosed NCAA violation. However on Thursday the Broncos got the news that they'd been hoping for... that their scrambling mode have just improved, dramatically.

Head Coach Bryan Harsin tweeted out a new commitment on Thursday, giving Bronco fans his usual "Go Broncos" tweet around 10am.


Speculation immediately focused on recent Harsin twitter follower and Kansas Grad Transfer Montell Cozart, formerly of the Big12's University of Kansas. (Later confirmed by the Idaho Statesman's Dave Southorn)


Cozart played in 27 games for the Jayhawks over his 4 years in Lawrence, including 18 starts. Known more for his aggressive running ability than his passing, Cozart experienced the downside of Kansas football, however, experiencing only 8 wins and enduring 40 losses during his tenure, making his transfer to 'Most Wins this Century' Boise State understandable.

Cozart spent 4 seasons at Kansas, including a redshirt year in 2013, and a Medical Redshirt year (already granted) in 2015.  He will have 2 years to complete 2 years of eligibility starting next fall. Apparently he will have only 1 year of eligibility based on further conversations w/ local Bronco beatwriter Dave Southorn. We'll work to clear up the confusion on his eligibility and let you know specifically how long he has on the Blue.
