Bronco Recruits Roll in All-Star Game

Boise State has already made an offer to running back Lamon Muldrow out of Rancho Cordova, Ca., and got assurance that their offer was made for good reason last week when Muldrow shredded the opposing stars in a 68-21 victory.

Lamon Muldrow, from Cordova High, competed in the first-ever Capital Valley Holiday Classic, a game pitting all stars from in and around Sacramento against those from the area surrounding Stockton and Modesto. The game featured a number of Division I prospects, including several that are heading to Pac 10 schools, a number off to the Big Sky, Mountain West, WAC and other western conferences.

"I had like the greatest offensive line in the nation," Muldrow said. "I knew if I just followed them they'd take me to the end zone."

Muldrow might not have been too far off the mark with the summation of his offensive line, which averaged 6' 4" 285, including mountainous Devan Cunningham, a 6'5" 325-pound beast of a tackle who has committed to Fresno State.

The Capital stars, as the Sacramento area was known, took advantage of Valley errors and piled up a 41-14 lead at one point. Muldrow helped with the lopsided score, rushing for 199 yards and 4 touchdowns against a stout Valley defense that included Arizona commit Dion Bland. Uncommitted quarterback Tim Lang also contributed greatly, scoring three times and connecting twice on touchdown passes to teammate JJ Stallworth, the brother of Philadelphia Eagles receiver Donte Stallworth.

"He's already being looked at by every team in the Big Sky Conference, most of the teams in the WAC and a few Moutain West teams," said Cordova head coach Max Miller of Muldrow.

A handful of Cordova assistants agreed that they believed the phone would start ringing a little more in light of the game the senior star put together. One thing keeping Boise State in strong contention is the fact that they like Muldrow for his power running ability and want him to play running back. A handful of other schools want the senior to play defense, which is not just speculation on their part. The powerhouse back was not only his league's Offensive MVP, he was also named to the first team all league defense.

Former Boise State recruit, and recent San Diego State commit Miles Burris, a linebacker from Granite Bay High, also played in the game. Burris made a handful of tackles, but found himself in coverage most of the game as the Valley stars tried to rely primarily on their passing attack. Burris was also named to the Sacramento Bee's All City team along with Muldrow.
