Broddie has offers

Already with a pair of scholarship offers, Randall Broddie is ready to take his game and recruitment to the next level.

The DMV Tip Off Classic had some impressive performances and clearly one of the best was rom class of 2016 guard Randall Broddie. The Potomac (Md.) standout took on the scoring load for his team and showed some significant upside.

At 6-foot-2 with good length, solid athleticism, and a big time scoring touch, Broddie is full of potential, and he feels his sophomore year is off to a good start.

"The start to the year has been good," said Broddie. "We had some good wins to start the season, and then we dropped a few games, but last year we lost a few early games as well and bounced back."

He continued, "Over the years my game has evolved. I know I still have a lot to work on though. Coming in to the game I knew Dion (Wiley's) ankle wasn't 100 percent, so I knew I had to go out and score and try and take over. In the first half I kind of forced a few things, but then I let the game come to me and my shots were going in."

Recruiting wise some big time schools are showing Broddie significant attention.

"Maryland, Georgetown, DePaul offered, SMU offered, Xavier, Florida State, Miami, and Cincinnati I am hearing from," said Broddie.

Broddie has been a regular at Maryland games all season long, and says he is high on the Terps.

"Everything is all love with Maryland," said Broddie. "I am comfortable with them and they treat me like family. They don't pressure me or anything. Coach (Dustin) Clark and Coach (Mark) Turgeon just tell me to stay focused on my game and to go somewhere that fits me."

With a teammate and friend in Wiley committed the Terrapins they have a connection, but Broddie says that he isn't getting too much pressure from his backcourt mate.

"He would love for me to come to Maryland," said Broddie of Wiley. "Sometimes he will throw out some hints or jokes or something, but Dion doesn't pressure me too much."

The other local school, Georgetown, is also making Broddie a priority recruit. While stylistically he might not be used to what Gerogetown does, Broddie actually thinks that could be a long term benefit.

"Georgetown is good," said Broddie. "It is a little different play style. They run the Princeton offense and I like to go up and down, but if I were to go to Georgetown that offense it might increase my game. I am more of a run and gun type of player, and I need to improve in sets, and that is what they do, so the way they play could help me."

Expect Broddie to take his time in his recruitment and to make some visits before reaching a decision.
