Head Coach Bryan Harsin and the Boise State football program added to their 2017 recruiting class last week when Fontana, CA Safety Tyreque Jones pledged his talents to The Blue.
The 3-star recruit is rated as the #158 player in the state of California by 247Sports.com and gives the Broncos their fifth defensive back in this year’s class. The DB got in touch with me on Tuesday evening to dish to Bronco Nation about his commitment.

Jones says he feels “great” about his commitment to Boise State, “they are a great football program and they are always ranked in the Top 25, which shows the type of guys they bring in.”
He added that Harsin is a great coach and “has shown me that he really cares about his players and that he really wants me to be a part of that.”
He feels about the same toward his future position coach Ashley Ambrose, adding, “he has shown me respect and has guided me through my recruiting process.”
When I asked the DB about Boise State University and its city he responded that “the city is beautiful, I loved the atmosphere. The school is great, their business program is amazing and that’s what I want to major in, so I really like that.”

The California-product tries to model his game after Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and Boise State safety Evan Tyler. He said he is different from other defensive back recruits because he wants “to be the best player that I can be, and I will do whatever I can and whatever it takes to do that.”
Jones said his goals for his time in Boise are to “not only become a great football player but earn my degree and become a successful man in society,” adding that he wants to earn his masters degree in business and grow as an individual.
