Clemson Makes the Cut with Huge QB Prospect

Newport News (VA) quarterback Cody Brodus (6-3.5, 220, 4.58) from Warwick High School is one of the nation's elite signal callers and perhaps one of the most elusive to the media. His head coach, Tommy Reamon, has coached several of the best quarterbacks from to ever come out of Virginia. Marcus Vick, Michael Vick, and Aaron Brooks have all patrolled the field at Warwick High School.

Brodus currently has 22 scholarship offers, and, according to coach Reamon, he has narrowed it down to four schools in Virginia, Virginia Tech, Clemson, and Maryland. How does Cody compare to the previous Quarterbacks Reamon has coached?

"I have never seen a QB with the quick wrist action that Michael had," said Reamon.

"Cody has a better physique than Michael had, he is more elusive than Brooks was, and he is similar to the same size as Brooks. He may be more physical than the three of them. Marcus was a very physical type of player, and Brodus may be as tough if not tougher."

Coach Reamon discussed the types of offense that he features at Warwick.

"We run a lot of multiple spread formations. Sometimes we use an empty backfield, or a one-back set."

Reamon said he had 125 different schools come into Warwick during the May evaluation period to get a glimpse of Brodus.

Last season, he completed 87 passes out of 156 attempts for 2,112 yards, 18 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions. On the ground Cody ran for 987 yards and 12 touchdowns for Warwick who finished the 2003 season with a record of 3-7.

Brodus has a 2.4 GPA, and has scored 970 on his SAT. We will continue to keep you updated on this talented quarterback, right up through signing day.

Editor's Note
With Tribble Reese and Cullen Harper reporting to Clemson as true freshmen this fall, the Tigers can be extremely selective with who they take in the 2005 recruiting class. In fact, the coaching staff could elect to pass on a signal caller this year, should the right recruit not show interest. Brodus, by all accounts, is one of the few QBs receiving serious consideration.
