Bryan Douglas, the redshirt senior, knows about coming back from adversity, overcoming a 2012 ACL tear to find plenty of playing time, including 10 starts, in the 2013 Boise State Broncos season. In all, he has 19 starts in his Boise State career and has proven to be a reliable cornerback for the team. He brings sprinter’s speed to the field and will be counted on to be a key cog in a defensive backfield that should be pretty good in 2014.
As a senior at Narbonne High School in Los Angeles, Douglas earned first-team all-conference honors on offense. After his junior year, he was a second-team pick on defense. On the offensive side of the ball as a senior, he had 44 catches for 852 yards and four touchdowns as a wide receiver. He also recorded 52 tackles, 14 pass breakups and five interceptions on defense, as well as returning a kickoff for a score. He was ranked in the top 100 by Scout.com and rated the No. 7 cornerback in California. Was a sprinter on the track team, clocking a 10.68 in the 100 meters.
After redshirting in 2010, he appeared in seven games in 2011, making his first start against San Diego State on Nov. 19. Finished the season with 10 tackles and one pass defended. In 2012, he appeared in the first eight games (three starts) of the season before a knee injury put him on the shelf. Recorded 19 tackles, one force fumble and one pass defended in that campaign. In 2013, he appeared in all 13 games and recorded 35 tackles, four interceptions and nine passes defensed. Snagged a pair of interceptions against UT-Martin on Sept. 7.
