Unofficial word has reached BroncoCountry.com from a source close to Ventura College in Ventura California that Boise State may have won the services of Ventura College DE/DT Esteban (Steven) Reveles.
Reveles, a 6'2 255lb DE/DT has been a 2-year starter and standout for the Pirates.
Reveles attended Oxnard High School, (Same home town as Bronco DE Mike Dominguez, and the 2 are reportedly friends), where he was 1st Team All-Pacific View League, 1st Team All-County and 1st Team All-CIF selection in 2002 as a Senior. In high school Reveles ran a 4.5 forty when he weighed 240lbs, but recently estimated he was near a 4.7 or 4.8 forty.
After such a stellar HS career, one would expect recruiters to be knocking down his door, however, because of grades he didn't get any serious looks from D1 Schools.
After taking a hiatus of 1 year, Reveles enrolled at Ventura College and immediately made an impact. "I was named first team all conference my first and second year at Ventura," Reveles told TotalBlue.com's Bradley Corbett. "My first year I played defensive end and had 52 tackles with six sacks. My second year, due to injuries I played defensive tackle and I had 60 tackles, seven sacks, 14 hurries, and three forced fumbles."
Besides being named 1st Team All-Conference both years, Reveles joined Boise State's own Dennis Ellis last season (as a Freshman), in being named to the 2004 All-Western State Concerence Northern Division Team's First Team Defense on the D-Line. Impressive enough to be named among the top 35 JC-DE prospects of 2006 by CollegeFootballNews.ocm.
"I'm not as tall or big as most defensive lineman," Reveles told Corbett, "(S)o I make up for it with my aggressive play. I never take a play off."
Reveles also recently reported that he roots for the NFL's Indianapolis Colts and their speedy end Dwight Freeney. He enjoys suishi, watching the movie "Friday Night Lights" and the "team unity" aspect of his sport. He hopes to earn a degree from a four-year school, and his favorite classes are Spanish and English.
