“I have built an amazing relationship with most of the coaches ever since they started recruiting me. During the whole process, I think I had about 5-7 coaches from Boise all reach out and they would say that they were very excited to have me out there. I loved how they treated me as a part of the Bronco family immediately!!”

Dylan Lee – Williams Field, RB

Rising senior running back Dylan Lee announced his commitment to Iowa State on Sunday while on his official visit. The Cyclones snagged Arizona’s 6A single-game rushing record holder (518 yards) after dishing out the offer in late May.

“I knew Iowa State was the correct choice when I was around the faculty and staff and getting a better understanding of the academic and athletic aspects of things. There were so many amazing resources and I knew right away I can be successful there.” 

“I’ve had a great relationship with my position coach, coach Langs, coach Mouser and Coach Nate as well as Coach Campbell. They are very locked in and focused on developing their young men into great people.”

Lee was a key impact player for the Black Hawks posting 223 carries, 1,600 rushing yards and 19 touchdowns. 


Jackson Barton – Sandra Day O’Connor, DB

Kezion Dia-Johnson – Desert Edge, WR

Desert Edge wide receiver Kezion Dia-Johnson announced his commitment to the University of Massachusetts on Monday afternoon following his campus visit over the weekend. Kezion’s offer from UMass is his most recent, rolling in on May 22

“The coaches definitely showed a lot of love and they reached out to me showing that they could use me. I feel like I’ll fit in right away. The way Coach Casula was showing me how I would be used made perfect sense because I already do those things now. The difference is it’s faster and more detailed at the next level.”

The 6-foot-0, 180-pound athlete made an impact for the Scorpions after transferring from Cesar Chavez following his sophomore season. Dia-Johnson previously took unofficial visits to Arizona, Oregon and Oregon State.
