After 2 Commits In 2 Days, Boise State Goes 2-fer Tuesday On Commitments

Boise State landed a Texas LB and a Utah QB on Sunday and Monday, but on Tuesday the Broncos added a couple Cali kids, LB DJ Schramm and RB Kazmeir Allen.

It might be a little odd to say of a High School Senior to-be, but D.J. Schramm is no stranger to College Football. In fact, he's been around it for most of his life.. places like San Diego State, Montana, Utah, and lately.. Fresno State. That's because the standout 6'1 220lb Linebacker from talent rich Clovis West High School in Fresno, CA, is the son of Dave Schramm, who has coached around the Western US since the late 1980's.  

With a pedigree like that, you'd expect DJ to play smart, intelligent football.. and you'd be right, but you'd also be only half right. DJ has 'field smarts', that much sticks out on his highlight videos, but he also has that intangible MLB tenacity when he plays. He flows well through traffic and always seems to be in the right spot to deliver a vicious hit to the ball carrier. It's that combination of physicality and smarts that has him ranked as a Top-50 Inside Linebacker by Scout.

Schramm, as a Junior, racked up 134 tackles, 5 sacks, 1 INT, 5 forced fumbles and a blocked kick for good measure, good enough to be named his Conference's Defensive Player of the Year. Boise State was his first offer, and that move appears to have paid off for the Broncos.

Kazmeir Allen had a tremendous Junior Season at Tulare Union HS, putting up video game numbers from his RB spot. For the year he went for over 3000 total yards and 36 Touchdowns. He had 1842 rushing yards, 582 receiving yards, and to top it all off, 599 return yards. Allen is a triple threat offensive weapon who has the speed and moves to take it to the end zone every time he gets a touch. Boise State put in a lot of time recruiting Allen, who mentioned Boise was recruiting him the hardest since this past Spring.

Allen had a number of suitors, fielding eight offers from the MWC alone, and from the Pac12's Arizona, among others. 

Allen has the hands to play either RB or WR for the Broncos, but given that his main recruiter was Lee Marks, it's a safe bet he'll line up in the backfield for the Broncos.

His highlight video below shows the speed that had so many schools after his services, (10.48 in the State Track Meet in the 100 meters, as a Junior). One step and he's gone.
