The Boise State football coaches had a Christmas Wish List of 17 players and they felt good about the verbal commitments received but signing is always the litmus test of their recruiting efforts.

Throw in the added element of this years first ever early signing period and who knew what to expect. It didn't take long to find out as the signings came in fast and furious this morning with all 17 players now signed as Broncos.

Among the signees is local defensive standout Keegan Freeborn a 6-1 310 pound lineman from Rocky Mountain.

Also from Idaho Is Cole Ramseyer a 6-4 230lb tight end from Coeur d'Alene High.

Normally signing day isn't until February and indeed there will be a February signing period however this early signing window has proved to be nice Holiday Cheer for Boise State coaches.
