Tune into Pluto.tv to see the Idaho Vandal recruiting special.

-Mike Breske excited about Colsbey Nosworthy out of CDA. Hoping he can win te bhattle to get him to “The Dark Side” (Defense). Much like he did with Llyod Hightower.

-Cinkovich is excited about Elijah Sanchez (247sports.com 3 star prospect). Beat out two other Big Sky Programs to win him. Chance he can get on field quickly.

-Luther Elliss talking FAMILY!

-Montana Alumi and current Idaho DB Coach Vernon Smith on Dareon Nash our University of Montana transfer. Coach Smith is EXCITED about Nash. Nash got bored on visit talking low level football. He shocked Smith how Nash intiaited more cmplex defensive conversations. Expects him to be star on cornerback for us this season. Lockingdown the outside. His Montana connection helped us land him.

-Kayode Rufai talks about the importance of the Northern Arizona win to close out the season. It help set the standard for this years senior class. “Even when the chips are down, you gotta show up”

-Brian Reader is amazing and we are lucky to have him. He is the perfect recruiting coordinator. He is what many wanted Jason Gesser to be, if Paul retained him when coming in. Brians a better fit in that role and an enormous asset to this program.

-Pauls picks for instant contributors. Chad Bagwell, Chauncey Smart & Fa’avae Fa’avae. Excited about Caleb “CJ” Jordan (arent we all?). Is currently 2nd highest QB recruit in the FCS and  ” Will make Vandal fans happy for alot of years to come.” Postitions looking to have most competetion going into Spring ball: QB & O-line. The staff has already started putting together the 2021 class.
