Broddie picks Memphis
Randall Broddie, a 2016 guard out of Oxon Hill (Md.) Potomac, made an early college choice on Monday. Just a few days removed from visiting Memphis for their midnight madness festivities, Broddie committed to Josh Pastner. Broddie informed Scout.com of the news. “I kind of knew I was leaning towards Memphis, but after Memphis Madness and taking my visit that was the icing on the cake,” Broddie said. “Coach P had a serious talk with me,” Broddie added. “He laid it out for me. He kept it real. He told me what I’m good at, and what I need to work on. If a coach can tell me what to work on, that means he cares and I see it has a connection.” Broddie picked Memphis over scholarship offers from Penn State, DePaul, SMU, Maryland, Georgetown and Villanova. “They’ve been on me since June since the Ty Lawson camp,” Broddie said. “Coach Aki Collins has been all out for me. There was something about Memphis and after the visit I thought it was the right fit for me with the type of player I am.” Broddie said his relationship with Collins also factored heavily into his decision. “I can talk to Aki about anything,” he said. “He’s starting to be a father figure to me. I can talk to him about anything. He keeps it real with me. He lets me know anything. I can talk to him about school work or if I’m having problems at home. Any coach you can talk to about anything and are that comfortable with you have connection with for a life time. A 6-foot-1 combination guard, Broddie is currently ranked as the No. 45 overall recruit in the 2016 class. The lefty, who played with Team Takeover this past spring and summer, has a scorer’s mentality. He's quick with the ball in his hands and can score off the drive, but his jump shot is among his biggest weapons. Broddie is Memphis' second pledge of the 2016 class. He joins four-star big man Nick Marshall to make up their current class.
