For Broussard that meant getting to sit down and get to know new defensive coordinator Will Muschamp as well as cornerbacks coach Travaris Robinson. Getting to talk football with two guys known for producing talented players at his position, Broussard noted it was a great experience.
“It was real fun,” Broussard said. “We got to talk a lot. We got to really know each other. We talked about defense, watched film, and played some pool, all kind of stuff.
“He’s a cool guy,” he added of Muschamp. “We talk a lot and he connects with us. He’s cool.”
Looking for difference-makers at the cornerback position and not afraid to play guys early, Muschamp has shown he can get the most out of defensive backs on the college level. That is something that has Broussard intrigued after hearing what the Tigers had to say.
“They are saying I can fit their scheme very well,” Broussard said. “They said I could fit into the program and play early. They also said that if I come mid-year I would have a good chance of getting into the lineup quick.”
John Broussard is one of the top in-state prospects for the 2016 signing class.
With Auburn high on his list along with LSU, Mississippi State and Kentucky, Broussard said having the new additions to the coaching staff should only help the chances for Gus Malzahn’s program moving forward.
“I know they are great coaches and they have a good history of putting guys in the league,” Broussard said. “They’ll have a good chance.”
