It's not often that a true freshman makes a huge impact for the Boise State Broncos.
In fact, you have to head all the way back to the recruiting class of 2008 to find a player (safety George Iloka) who made any significant impact during his freshman year.
This is one of the reasons that the Broncos have been able to build such an impressive empire. They don't get the top recruits, but they utilize the redshirt, and more specifically the grey-shirt, better than any other program in college football.
Their 2011 class could easily be one of the more impressive that the Broncos coaches and staff have put together, so let's check out some of the key pieces they have coming in and what kind of impact they might be able to have for Chris Petersen's squad.
