So, we had a good vacation on the Oregon Coast, but did not succeed in spotting behemoth Charles Siddoway from Cape Foulweather (too foggy). We ate a lot of seafood, found some sand dollars (not legal tender, unfortunately) and paid WAY too much for gas.

Upon our return yesterday evening, I decided to catch up on Bronco goings on. First off, I was dismayed to see that J.R. Simplot had died...he was very good to Boise State University and will be missed. Second, I was non-shocked to see that Richard Brehaut said "I'm Bre-out", and signed with UCLA. My bummedness was short-lived, however as I noted the signing of Jared Zabransky clone, Joe Southwick. Southwick, a 6'2" QB from Danville, CA threw for over 3,000 yards last year as a junior and tossed 37 TDs to only 9 INTS en route to a North Coast Section 3A championship. For those that think Southwick's early verbal could be ripe for a renege, think again...Southwick won't be swayed by late offers:

"The way I look at it is, 'Where were you guys earlier?' " Southwick told the Idaho Statesman on Thursday. " (My commitment) is 100 percent. I'm a Bronco and I'm going to stick with it."
Southwick's verbal effectively ends the 2009 QB recruit race, as he was told that he would be the only quarterback signee in the class. So, unless Taysom Hill decides to play linebacker...forget about him playing on the blue, Bronco fans. Southwick already is elusive and has a live arm while still being relatively green and undeveloped...so he looks to be a real steal for the Broncos. So Joe Southwick commits in May, of all things...nobody commits that early do they? BUT WAIT...Phoenix CB/WR Ebenezer "Ebo" Makinde pulled the trigger yesterday and will be a Bronco. Makinde held a pair of Mountain West offers and has excellent size and speed for a DB. Makinde is 6'0" and runs a 4.4. The only downside for Makinde appears to be his nickname...your name is Ebenezer, man, embrace it!

So, two Bronco commits in May is phenomenal...that's gotta be it, right? BUT WAIT!!! Rivals and Scout have both confirmed that Kempner (TX) WR/CB Quaylon Ewing has signed on with the Broncos as well. Ewing, a teammate of '08 signee George Iloka is 6'1" and runs a 4.4 forty as well. Lordy, two speedy corners both over 6 feet tall? What is this world coming to?

I'm definitely going on vacation more often if it yields these kind of results.
