Baltazar leaves the Bronco football program

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - Aaron Baltazar won't be playing football for Boise State in 2014. The true-freshman running back, who tore his ACL during the Southern Miss game, has decided to leave the program.

The Boise State athletic department confirmed his decision, but did not provide any more information on his departure.

Baltazar used a stellar fall camp to move into the number two spot on the Bronco depth chart, and started Boise State's game against Air Force in mid September. The Chula Vista, California native finished his injury-shorten season with 234 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns.
