And now we know it too, dreams do come true.

Well folks, I’m still in shock. Out of the top 5 of TCU, Michigan, Nebraska, Oregon, and Boise State, the Broncos got the call. Not even late offers from Alabama and Georgia could sway the fastest football recruit in the nation.

If he signs, Gatlin will join the team in the 2026 season following a 2 year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. On the livestream, Gatlin cited faith as a determinant that swayed him to the promised land.

We’ll talk about him plenty more on here, but the big thing is his speed. He’s shattered the state record for the 100 and 200 meter dash, and is the 2nd fastest HS sprinter in the country as junior. Take a look at this comp Jay Just put out:

And here is Gatlin’s official announcement video:

This shows extremely well on the work Andy Avalos and Co. has done on the recruiting front. In the tweet below, his coach made sure to emphasize the “FLAWLESS recruitment” job done in pursuit of Gatlin. Also peep the beautiful Idaho/BSU logo.

EDIT: Here’s a video of the reaction of the Bronco coaches when they got the news:

How we feeling?
