Hamilton HS OT Tyler Johnstone (Chandler, AZ) has seen his stock skyrocket over the past few months. He got his first offer just a couple months ago and now his total is approaching twenty. What schools are recruiting him the hardest? "Oregon, USC, ASU, UA, and Boise State are recruiting me the hardest," he said. "I'm going to try to have a top five soon. I'm hoping to have it around July 26th," he added.

Boise State offered Johnstone in late May. The Boise State staff is quickly turning The Grand Canyon State into one of the top recruiting grounds for the program. For example, the Broncos have already extended offers to Kelvin Fisher and Cyrus Hobbi as well. Johnstone, Fisher, and Hobbi are widely considered to be three of the top prospects in the state for the 2011 class.

Tight Ends Coach Scott Huff has become one of the top recruiters on the Boise State staff. He continues to make a solid impression on the recruiting trail as Johnstone thinks highly of him. "Coach Huff is real personable and friendly," he said. "He definitely wants what's best for the prospect and not just what will benefit the school."

The Broncos have the best record in college football over the past decade. Last season, Boise State opened the season with a bang as they defeated Oregon on The Blue and then wrapped up the season with yet another Fiesta Bowl victory. Boise State's winning ways haven't gone unnoticed by Tyler Johnstone. "Well, I think they're an incredible program. I remember watching them beat Oregon. That was a big deal and their record is amazing," he stated. "I think they can compete at the BCS level. Coach Huff told me the only two teams to go 14-0 are Hamilton HS and Boise State."

Tyler (6'6, 260, 4.93) and his teammates at Hamilton HS also had an unbelievable season in 2009. Their season of perfection was the first in school history and the talented OT believes they can repeat in 2010. "I definitely think we can repeat. I think we have a lot more talent than last year," Johnstone said. "I just want to win state this year as a senior. That's all that matters at this point."

What does Johnstone bring to the field? "I think I come off the ball well and I'm mobile," he said. "You don't have to worry about me missing blocks down field. I played at 225 last year and I was still driving guys. I don't stop at all," he added.
