I have been saying it for a while now and have been preaching it ever since Ryan Clady came on the scene in the NFL, if you want a good player go to Boise State.
When you think about the guys they have turned out all of them have produced and done it immediately.
Ryan Clady, Ian Johnson, Orlando Scandrick, Quintin Mikell, Derek Schouman, Legedu Naanee, Kyle Wilson, Chris Carr, and Daryn Colledge all came from Boise State and all contribute to their respective NFL teams.
Five of those names listed are starters as well. So ask yourself is Boise State the real deal or what? And it sure doesn't end with Austin Pettis.
Ever since he stepped foot on campus he has dominated and not just because he is playing in the WAC because there are guys in the NFL and guys who were drafted in the first round who he has embarrassed for a full game.
He loves the big stage as well and once he goes up against Virginia Tech everyone will see Austin Pettis is the real deal!
