Late last month it was running back D.J. Harper being granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA. This month, it’s one of Harper’s offensive line teammates on the receiving end of the very good news.
According to the Idaho Statesman, the Broncos announced Tuesday that center Cory Yriarte (pictured, No. 74) has been granted a sixth year of eligibility.
Torn ACLs in his right knee in 2009 and 2010 forced the lineman to miss both seasons, clearing the way for the NCAA waiver.
Yriarte, a member of BSU’s 2007 recruiting class, started six games in 2011, and is expected to be the starter in 2012 now that he’s received the additional season.
