Nov. 19, 2015

BOISE, Idaho - Boise State men’s golf head coach Dan Potter announced the signings of Brian Humphreys, Connor Johnstone and Mason Schulze to National Letters of Intent, Thursday. The trio will join the Broncos for the 2016-17 season.

“I'm really excited about signing this class,” Potter said. “These three all have the ability to make an immediate impact for us competitively and they are the type of guys that will help us create a dynamic team culture going forward. This is a great day for Bronco golf.”

Humphreys, from Washougal, Wash. (Camas HS), captured the 2013 WIAA 4A State Championship as a freshman and was 2013 Oregon Junior Golf Player of the Year. He finished second at state as sophomore and fourth as a junior. In 2014, he finished tied for sixth at the Royal Oaks Invitational, won the Peter Jacobson Junior Challenge and participated in both the Callaway Junior World Championship and the USGA Junior. Humphreys was a three-time selection to represent Oregon in the Eddie Hogan Cup matches, and was twice a Junior Americas Cup selection.

“I have known Brian since he was a freshman in high school and have always been impressed with him as a player and a person,” Potter said. “He is an extremely bright, mature individual. He also has experience playing at a very high level and I am looking forward to getting him in our program and helping him not only be very good, but get back to being the dominant player he is capable of.”

Johnstone, from Caldwell, Idaho (Vallivue HS), won the Idaho 5A state championship as a sophomore in 2014 and finished eighth as a junior in 2015. This past year he also represented Idaho in the prestigious Junior Americas Cup and Eddie Hogan Cup Team Matches. He also qualified for the Callaway Junior World Championship.

“Connor is one of those people who is gifted in every way,” Potter said. “He has a tremendous work ethic, beautiful golf game and infectious personality. He is a precision player with great touch and imagination around the green. It's great when we can keep awesome players like Connor in state. He bleeds blue and orange and will make a great Bronco.”

Schulze, from Poway, Calif. (Poway HS), was a first-team All-CIF selection this past year, and finished ninth individually at the 2015 CIF State Championships. As a sophomore in 2014, he was a second-team All-CIF honoree and was also named second-team All-Palomar League. Schulze has twice qualified to compete in the Callaway Junior World Championship.

“Mason has a very athletic golf swing and a well-rounded game,” Potter said. “He has a knack for playing his best in difficult conditions. Additionally, Mason has a great disposition for golf and a desire to constantly improve his game. He will be a great teammate and I am excited to get him up to Boise.”
