Broncos offer 2020 RB Peny Boone
Western Michigan was the first to offer in-state athlete Peny Boone for its 2020 signing class.
Boone is listed as an athlete who can play both running back and linebacker, but he’s currently favored to carry the rock. Right now as a high school sophomore, Boone is listed at 6-foot-2, 210 pounds and is the No. 6 recruit in his state by 247sports.com (0.8800 composite score).
Tall and big? Strength is something that should come to mind. His sophomore season highlights show that he likes to dance around, though. Boone is bigger than a lot of defenders he gets to play against but isn’t afraid to cut from one side of the offensive line and bounce outside on the other. His stock should continue to improve through his upcoming junior and senior seasons, especially if he can make some noise between the tackles.
Boone is actually the younger brother of Zurlon Tipton, who was the running back for Central Michigan, then spent two seasons with the Indianapolis Colts as an undrafted free agent from 2014-2015.
Tipton ran for 2,468 yards on 461 handles and scored 34 times on the ground, once through the air. In 2016, Tipton, 26, died of an accidental shooting.

“The school I want to hear from is Central Michigan… I want to go where my brother went,” Boone told 247sports.com back in February.
