Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that Boise State RB Jeremy McNichols will likely undergo labrum surgery after the NFL Combine.

McNichols currently intends to participate in the Combine. Pauline was on McNichols' woes going back to December, noting then that the prospect had been dealing with shoulder issues for a year. McNichols rushed for 1,709 yards with 23 touchdowns during his sensational final campaign. He added 37 catches for 474 yards and four more scores. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom is tepid about his pro potential due to an uninspiring size/speed combination and durability concerns.

Boise State dismissed senior LB Kameron Miles following a charge of misdemeanor domestic battery.

The charge of misdemeanor domestic battery has to do with an altercation with a woman at a home. Miles was also arrested on Jan. 10 on a misdemeanor charge of possessing drug paraphernalia with intent to use. The former four-star recruit began his career at Texas A&M before getting kicked off the team in the spring of 2014 because of theft.

Boise State signed four-star 2017 CB Jermani Brown.

HC Bryan Harsin's Broncos aren't always able to scoop up four-star talent. They sealed the deal on Brown, though, and didn't have much issue doing so. Indeed, Boise State held his commitment without a wobble after he pledged himself to the blue cause back in mid-August. According to ESPN, the 5-foot-11, 175-pounder is a "[v]ersatile coverage defender," one who "excels in both man and zone schemes." Scout.com is high on his instincts and general athleticism, though they do believe (stop us if you've heard this one before) that he will need to add weight once he joins the Broncos.

Boise State received a verbal commitment from three-star 2017 RB Drake Beasley Jr.

"Beasley has a nice combination of speed, quickness and power," writes Scout.com's Greg Biggins. "He's not a big back but can break tackles and runs very hard between the tackles." The analyst adds that the 5-foot-11, 185-pounder is "at his best in space and when he gets in to the open field, he can take it to the house." Scout ranks Beasley as the No. 5 running back prospect in the state of California.

Kansas coach David Beaty denied the transfer of former Boise State S Darreon Jackson.

"David Beaty has told us that (Jackson) is not among the prospects we are recruiting," said a university spokesman. On Monday, Jackson had announced his commitment to the Jayhawks on Twitter. Jackson was one of three players kicked off the Boise State team prior to last season following a university sexual-assault investigation. No criminal charges were filed. Jackson played at Coffeyville Community College last season.

ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. indicated that he believes Boise State WR Thomas Sperbeck could carve out a role in the NFL.

While Kiper likes Sperbeck's skill-set, Day 3 is the best he can realistically hope for come the draft. Undrafted free agency is also well within the field of play for the 6-foot, 175-pounder. Said Kiper on his Thursday conference call, "I think he can make it as a slot receiver in this league with his smarts and his hands and his concentration." Sperbeck's career at Boise State was of the brilliant variety, as he surpassed 1,200 yards receiving in each of his final two seasons with the Broncos.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Boise State has hired former Fresno State OC Eric Kiesau to serve as WR coach.

Kiesau not only acted as offensive coordinator last season, he had a four-game cup of head-coaching coffee when he stepped as interim head coach in the wake of Tim DeRuyter's in-season termination. Among Kiesau's previous collegiate stops, Utah State, Cal, Colorado, Washington and Kansas. Plus a one-year gig as offensive analyst for Alabama in 2015.

Boise State AD Curt Apsey indicated that he does not believe HC Bryan Harsin will be taking the open head-coaching position at Minnesota.

Current Minnesota AD Mark Coyle hired Harsin at Boise State in 2013 during his tenure with the Broncos. Despite that obvious connection, Apsey is outwardly unconcerned, saying, "What I can tell you about coach Harsin is he is interested in being the coach at Boise State and that’s where his focus is. He is, without a doubt, 100 percent focused on getting his staff and his team prepared for 2017." We have yet to see Harsin's name seriously linked to Minnesota. It was reported back in December that he did interview with Oregon after the Ducks fired HC Mark Helfrich, but that job ultimately went to USF HC Willie Taggart.

Boise State RB Jeremy McNichols has dealt with a shoulder injury that could complicate his draft process, according to Tony Pauline.

Pauline states McNichols has dealt with the injury for about a year, so note if it pops up during NFL Combine medicals or team visits. A number of running backs could have shoulder check ups, including McNichols and Dalvin Cook. It is worth nothing that McNichols carried the ball 314 times this season. If everything goes well, McNichols could land in the third round.

Boise State junior RB Jeremy McNichols rushed for 46 yards on 19 carries in the school's 31-12 loss to Baylor.

It was a disappointing end to McNichols' college career, as Boise State could not get going against Baylor's defense. McNichols added 24 receiving yards and could be in line for a second day selection, depending on the rest of the draft process.

Boise State junior RB Jeremy McNichols will forego his final season of collegiate eligibility to declare for the 2017 NFL Draft.

FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman reported that McNichols would take the plunge earlier on Monday. The Boise State star made it official via a lengthy Twitter post later in the day. This past season, the 5-foot-9, 205-pound junior rushed for 1,663 yards and 23 touchdowns over the course of 12 games played. McNichols could potentially land as a Day 2 pick when all is said and done.

Boise State redshirt junior QB Tommy Stuart will transfer.

Stuart initially joined the Broncos in the spring of 2014, after spending his freshman campaign at Butte Junior College. While he posted a prolific season with Butte, throwing for 1,927 yards with a 29/3 TD/INT ratio, the playing time just hasn't been there in the Boise Valley. The 5-foot-11, 203-pounder attempted just 23 passes at BSU -- and a mere five this season. As a graduate transfer, he will be eligible to play immediately at another FBS program in 2017.

Boise State junior RB Jeremy McNichols will declare for the 2017 NFL Draft, according to Bruce Feldman.

Tony Pauline reported the same since December 9. In 12 games this season, McNichols rushed for 1,663 yards and 23 touchdowns. With running backs like Nick Chubb and Royce Freeman returning to school, McNichols might have a better chance of being a day two selection, but not matter what the running back class is ripe with talent.

Boise State dismissed redshirt sophomore S Sumner-Gardner.

"Due to a violation of team rules and a continuation of academic issues from earlier this season," the Broncos said in a statement released to the Idaho Press-Tribune, "at this point in time Dylan Sumner-Gardner is not a member of the Boise State football team." This marks the end of the 6-foot-1, 204-pounder's rocky career in the Boise Valley. He was suspended for the Poinsettia Bowl last season due to a violation of team rules and was also held out of the first four games of the 2016 campaign due to academic issues. And now an outright dismissal. Even had he remained in good standing, he would still be missing BSU's upcoming Cactus Bowl date with Baylor following his undergoing shoulder surgery on Thursday. The former four-star recruit was one of the biggest to ever land with the Broncos, ranking as Rivals' No. 54 overall prospect for the 2014 cycle.

Boise State redshirt sophomore S Dylan Sumner-Gardner is undergoing shoulder surgery.

This, according to Sumner-Gardner's mother, who tweeted that the 6-foot-1, 204-pounder was "getting his shoulder pinned back together" on Thursday morning. He figures to miss Boise State's Cactus Bowl showdown with Baylor due to this shoulder procedure. To say that the 2016 campaign has been a rocky one for Sumner-Gardner would be an understatement. The redshirt sophomore safety was suspended for the first four games of the season due to his failing to hit NCAA academic eligibility requirements.
