Soooooo close until we can say “Only one month until football!”

#32, Bryce Cleave, RsSo, Safety



Height: 6’0″

Weight: 190 lbs

High school: Peninsula, HS (Gig Harbor, WA)

How’d he get to The Blue™?

Mr. Cleave had some interest in other schools. Looking at his 247Sports profile, his only offer was Carroll College. Not a whole lot else to include, I’m afraid.

While in high school Bryce played football as a safety and a wide receiver. As a multi-sport athlete, he also played baseball.



Not an homage to Gary Paulsen, per se, but what do hatchets do? That’s right. They cleave things!



In the right light and from the correct angle, a little Boyd Holbrook…kind of. Maybe.

Career Highlights

None to speak of yet at the college level, but you can relive his high school highlights here. He did play in one game last year and had one tackle vs Utah State.

2023 Prospectus

Defensive backs are notorious for rotating a lot and you can basically never have too many of them. While Boise State has a lot of safety depth at the moment, that can also change in a moment. As things stand currently, I would imagine he gets some playing time this year again on special teams and as a reserve, while building up his experience for potentially more involved reps in seasons to come.

Is he on Twitter?

Yes, and seemingly quite happy to be a Bronco!

Completely made up fact

Bryce has never actually heard of the American classic novel, “Hatchet“, but even if he had, it wouldn’t matter. He only has eyes for “My Side of The Mountain“.
