The Boise State football team picked up three commitments from junior college defensive linemen on Saturday.

The Broncos got verbal pledges from Fullerton College defensive end Antoine Turner, Contra Costa College defensive end Rondell McNair and Sacramento City College defensive tackle Edmund Faimalo.

All three committed while on official visits to Boise State.

Turner’s commitment was announced by the Fullerton football team’s Twitter account while McNair’s commitment was posted to Twitter by Contra Costa coach Alonzo Carter.

Faimalo’s commitment was first reported by late Saturday night.

It’s been a long road for Turner, who according to an article on was displaced by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and was homeless at times after moving to California. The 6-foot-3, 275-pound Turner received interest from Iowa State, Utah, Kansas State, Washington and Oklahoma. He has two years of eligibility left and two seasons to use them.

McNair, a 6-foot-4, 250-pound speed rusher off the edge, had offers from Arizona State, New Mexico, San Jose State, Troy, Western Kentucky and Wyoming, according to The three-star transfer had 32 tackles, 7.5 sacks and a forced fumble in 2013.

Faimalo is a 6-foot-2, 285-pound interior defensive lineman from Sacramento, Calif., and had interest from Cincinnati, Colorado, UNLV and Utah State, per

  Cheers and Jeers
Jeers to the store that sold a broken refrigerator to my mom for $120. The fridge not only did not work but was disgusting and needed a lot of cleaning. My mom called the repair guy they recommended, paid the $25 to him just to discover it could not be fixed. Then the seller refused to give her a refund. I understand the “no refund” policy, but that should not count against items already broken!
