Overlooked and under recruited. Terms that have been given to many Boise State recruits that turned into standouts for the football program over the years.
Jordan Happle may one day be throwing his name into that mix.
Happle, the Defensive Player of the Year in Oregon’s Metro League and two-way standout, announced his decision to commit to Boise State via Twitter:

As a junior, Happle caught 74 passes for 1,416 yards, including 15 touchdown receptions. He amassed nearly 2000 total yards of offense has a junior despite missing Jesuit’s playoff run with a broken ankle.
Happle helped lead Jesuit to state championship in December of 2015.
At 6’2, 190, Happle played both safety and wide receiver in high school. Happle’s athleticism will fit in nicely at either position for Boise State, especially if it’s at receiver, where the Broncos will be losing top talent after the 2016 season.
Happle, perhaps with a chip on his shoulder due to lack of interest from Pac-12 schools, will be a welcome addition to the Boise State family.
