Boise State had a very impressive defensive secondary in 2012. Opponents were rarely successful in the passing game, especially in the area of touchdown passes. Going into the Maaco Bowl Las Vegas, the Broncos had only allowed an incredible three, yes three TD grabs all season.
However, in 2013 the Broncos will be without safety Lee Hightower, who was suspended from the team. They will also be missing two incredible defensive secondary guys in Jerrell Gavins and Jamar Taylor who hope to be playing on Sunday in 2013.
Enter the 2013 recruiting class. The Broncos have loaded up in the defensive secondary. There are a total of five commits who have reportedly signed their letters of intent to play at Boise State.
Cleshawn Page is a junior college player who has already signed with the Broncos. He is out of L.A. Harbor College in California, and he is certainly going to compete for playing time right out of the gate.
Page is 5'10", 190 pounds, fast, strong and covers the field. Boise State fans can be happy about this recruit.
Mercy Maston is another junior college guy, and it is being reported that he has indeed submitted his letter to play for the Broncos in 2013. He is another guy that could compete right from the start, and don't be surprised if his name gets called frequently next season.

Cameron Hartsfield was once a Nevada verbal commitment, but not any more. On national signing day, he made it official. He will become a Bronco.
Harstfield is from Allen High School in Allen, Texas. He is 5'11", 182 pounds, fast and can hit. He may not see a lot of playing time in 2013, but expect him to develop into a solid corner for Boise.

Of course, the most appropriately named recruit on the Bronco's list is Dionza Blue. The cornerback out of La Puente, California will bring his talents to The Blue. He is ranked No. 93 by ESPN.com at the position and a 3-star recruit.
Blue should certainly make waves in 2013.

Last, but certainly not least, is safety Thomas Sperbeck. He played quarterback at Jesuit High School in Carmichael, California, but he will switch to safety to be a Bronco.
He is an amazing athlete, and his experience at quarterback should give him an edge as a safety.

Overall, the Broncos have landed some very good talent in the defensive secondary. The junior college guys should contribute right away, but don't be surprised if one or two others on this list get some playing time in 2013.
Stay tuned to Bleacher Report for the latest news for the Broncos on national signing day.
