Announcement Time: Broussard Talks Final 3

4-star cornerback prospect John Broussard will announce his commitment on Thursday morning. He talks about each of his final three of Auburn, LSU and Mississippi State.

Phenix City, Ala.--Four-star John Broussard has been pointing towards his commitment day of May 7 for quite a while, and now that the time is almost here the Central High standout said he’s excited about the future. Making his final decision on Tuesday night after talking things over with his family, Broussard said now he’s just ready to get it done.

“I’m very excited just to go ahead and get it over with,” Broussard said. “I have been ready for this for a minute so I just wanted to go ahead and do it. I just needed to find the place most comfortable for me, the place I could see myself playing and going to school. It just wanted a great fit.”

Announcing his decision on Thursday morning at 9 a.m. central time at his school, Broussard said he plans to tell the coaches just before he makes his announcement. With three very good programs to choose from, Broussard said he can’t go wrong picking between Auburn, LSU and Mississippi State.

Broussard talks about each of his finalists beginning with Gus Malzahn and the Auburn Tigers. Making a handful of visits this spring, including a final trip last Sunday, the 5-10, 170-pounder said there is plenty to like about Auburn.

“It’s always a loving environment when I go up there,” Broussard said. “I have a great relationship with all of the coaches, we’re always talking. It’s just like a family up there. It’s also a great opportunity right now at my position for me to come in next year and compete for a spot.”

Broussard is a talented defensive back prospect

Growing up in Louisiana, Broussard has followed the LSU program since he was small. That makes the Bengal Tigers a definite player in his recruiting as well.

“It’s basically the same for me,” he said of LSU comparing it to Auburn. “It’s a great, loving environment and I get lots of love when I go up there. If I come out and do what I need to I would be playing early because they play a lot of nickel and dime stuff. It would be cool because it’s somewhere I always wished I could play at, the school I always looked to go to.”

Rounding out his list is Mississippi State. Visiting the Bulldogs for their spring game, Broussard said he likes what they’ve got going on as well.

“It’s the same thing with them,” Broussard said. “They all show a great amount of love. They basically will have open spots when I come. It would be a great opportunity for me to get in and play.”
