"The coaches we're really cool and the people were nice," said Lamon Muldrow, who teammates call "Mojo."
While Boise is different from the freeway-paced life in California, there is enough about the town and the program to entice Muldrow's interest.
"I like that blue turf, that turf is really cool," Muldrow added. Boise State's winning tradition is in line with the tradition that Mojo's own experience at Cordova, one of the Sacramento-area's top high school programs.
In fact, that tradition has helped keep Muldrow a relative secret with Boise State currently joining Division I-AA Sacramento State as the only schools to make scholarship offers for his services. However, as the Section's leading rusher, Muldrow will not stay a secret for long.
The senior powerhouse, who will almost immediately remind Bronco fans of current starting tailback Ian Johnson, has piled up 774 yard and 11 touchdowns on the ground in three games with a whopping 10.3 yards per carry average. He also has 132 receiving yards, with an average of 22 yards per reception—most of those coming off of screen passes and dump offs.
Not a one trick pony, the workhorse senior is also third on the team in tackles.
"I'm just looking for the best opportunity," said the low-key senior.
BSU is the clear front-runner at this point, but other coaches will likely descend on the Rancho Cordova campus soon. As evidence of Mojo's capabilities, the only thing keeping him from starting the last two seasons was the presence of James Montgomery, a Parade All American now red-shirting at Cal behind Marshawn Lynch and Cal's deep crop of backs.
