Boise State holds 3 players out of opener

By Associated Press

POSTED:



BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Boise State coaches say three foreign-born players are being held out of the season opener against Georgia because the players are undergoing a review of their eligibility by the NCAA.

The players include starting wide receiver Geraldo Boldewijn, starting safety Cedric Febis and backup defensive lineman Ricky Tjong-A-Tjoe (TON-uh-joe).

Athletic Department spokesman Max Corbett says the players did not make the trip to Atlanta, where the No. 5 Broncos are getting ready to play No. 19 Georgia on Saturday in the Georgia Dome.

Corbett says the NCAA review is not related to academics or violations of team rules.

All three are from the Netherlands and left high school early to enroll and play prep football for high schools in Boise.

All three cleared eligibility and played for the Broncos last season.
