[Today, we are privileged with a contribution from our good friend, Mike Wittmann from over at Mountain West Connection]

We are already in the “low” 80s people. Soon enough, media days will be here, then fall camp, then actual football games. Until then, let’s discuss Zamondra Merriweather.

#84, Zamondre Merriweather, Redshirt Freshman, WR


Height: 6’ 2”

Weight: 212 lbs.

High School: Valencia HS, Valencia, Calif.

How’d he get to the Blue™?

By having a great high school career. The consensus three-star (and consensus top 100 recruit in California) helped lead his team to back-to-back Foothill League title games by catching 43 passes for 661 yards and five total touchdowns. He held offers at one time from Colorado State, Florida State, Maryland, New Mexico, and San Diego State, but chose… the Broncos over the summer and held firm until signing day.


“Happy Storm”

Because synonyms.


This other image of himself that he posted in a tweet that is “definitely not” himself. (I tried for 20 minutes before giving up).

Career Highlights

In college, none yet, due to a redshirt year (and whispers of an injury)

2023 Prospectus

A year ago, the wide receiver room had a lot of unknowns and spots were up for grabs. Now, going into 2023 and there is a definite pecking order in the room. Latrell Caples, Stefan Cobbs, Billy Bowens and Eric McAllister are the top four wideouts in some order. Austin Bolt poised to be a key contributor before his devastating injury last season, Chase Penry was a transfer brought in during the offseason, and newcomer Prince Strachan was one of the most talked about players during fall camp. It will be hard for Merriweather to find snaps, but it won’t be because of a lack of talent. His ceiling in 2023 is likely excelling in limited action like McAllister did in the first half of last year, but it’s more likely we see him in garbage time and on special teams.

Is he on Twitter?

You bet he is. But don’t expect many 2023 tweets.

Completely made up fact

Zamondre is a gourmet chef and after he leaves college, he hopes to own a restaurant. He will call it Z’s Endzone and plans to have it closed on Sundays.
