Boise State inks CFC100 Isaiah Bagnah

After mulling over all the options at hand – and there were plenty to choose from – CFC100 Isaiah Bagnah out of CFC50 Lethbridge decided he’s best fit for life on the Smurf Turf signing with Boise State. It’s a dream come true for the defensive line prospect from Alberta, who grew up following the Broncos closely as a kid, and now he’ll finally get to battle for the Mountain West Conference on the field instead of in front of the television. He exploded onto the scene during the spring eventually racking up offers from Old Dominion, UMass, Tulane, UConn and Yale, but Boise State were the clear front runners as perennial top 25 contenders, including this season where they’ve gone 10-3 with a berth in the First Responder Bowl against Boston College.

You never know how you’ll find the next destination, but all it took was a couple quick messages and Bagnah was on his way to Idaho,

“I actually contacted coach Danielson through Twitter and sent him my film a few months ago and ever since then I grew a great relationship with him and the coaching staff.” He explains.

“Boise State has always been one of my favourite teams. How they run their program and what they prioritize in their team is really intriguing to me. Can’t go wrong with the Blue Turf!”

There’s a history of Canadian players turned pro coming out of Boise State, but Bagnah is the first to commit since 2011. Michael Atkinson enjoyed a four year career before being drafted by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, Tyrone Crawford of the Dallas Cowboys signed in 2010 after stint with Bakersfield College, then a year later they recruited Taylor Loffler of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and former Saskatchewan Roughrider Rory Konnop, but both ended up finishing their university career north of the border.

I’d say all of the above is a very good sign that Bagnah made the right decision.
