Boise State Signs Two to Letters of Intent

Boise State head basketball coach Leon Rice signed two players to National Letters of Intent today.  We knew about Zach Haney.  It's the second one that was news.

Montigo Alford, a JC transfer from well-known power College of Southern Idaho is that second guy.  Alford averaged 15.1 points and 3.8 assists last year in leading CSI to the Region 18 Championship Game.  He earned All-Region, scoring over 20 points in eight games and hitting 44.2% from three-point range. 

Alford played high school basketball at Summit High School in Fontana, California, the same high school that Bronco cornerback Donte Deayon went to.  At Summit, Alford led his team to the CIF DIvision II Championship game with a 28-8 record. 

“Montigo has great quickness and athleticism,” Rice said. “He’s a little different than the guards we have in the program. He has the ability to get where he wants with the ball and create within our system. He has the chance to make an immediate impact because of that.”

It sounds like, with the additions to the program, Boise State will not have to worry one bit about depth or getting tired.  We look forward to seeing the improvements to the Bronco team.
