Here to help you through a case of the Mondays, we have a number that needs a footballer and a footballer that is currently without a number. So…he goes here. Today we have—EDGE Jayden Virgin
#40, Jayden Virgin, Redshirt Freshman, EDGE
Height: 6’ 3”
Weight: 240 lbs
High School: Mt. Carmel High School, San Diego, CA
How’d he get to The Blue™?
Jayden was one of the crown jewels of the 2022 class as a four-star rated recruit per 247Sports. On defense he notched 144 tackles, 20 sacks and 16 of those sacks as a senior. As a tight end he had 73 receptions, 1,273 yards and 15 touchdowns in his high school career.
He had a handful of offers from other Mountain West schools including Colorado State, Fresno State, and Utah State (among some others).
As in the place opposing QBs end up with he knocks them to the ground.
The hair and beard is giving me vibes of this random person who is in no way affiliated with Boise State football.
His high school stats were recorded above. As for college stats, he played in three games but did not record any official stats.
Virgin was a big-time commit and the Broncos are lacking proven pass-rushing talent, so on paper, playing team seems wide open for the young player. However, Boise State also ushered in some transfer portal players to fill the edges, so he will be in quite a battle for snaps come fall camp.
It would not at all be surprising to see Jayden get in a rotation at one either EDGE (where he’s listed) or DE (where he could play since the coaching staff likes to switch some players back and forth). If I had to guess based on other players listed at EDGE, I’d say Virgin would probably be behind Cortez Hogans and Kivon Wright on the depth chart entering fall camp, but he definitely has a shot at receiving playing time this season. It would bode well for the Broncos if he can seize a significant role based playing up to his massive potential.
Is he on Twitter?
He is. But don’t expect much more than retweets. His last original tweet was nearly a year ago.
Completely made up fact.
Growing up, Jayden’s favorite animal was seals. In second grade, he did a book report on seals and it was so detailed that every zoo in California uses it as their training manual for those who care for the marine mammals (or pinnipeds).
