Cats Offer Blinn CB

MANHATTAN, Kan. - With defensive back help being a priority in this Kansas State recruiting class, especially at the safety position, Blinn College is always a safe place to look for talent. The Wildcats have offered Tevin Broussard, who started all 11 games for the Buccaneers after a redshirt year in 2010.

"The [Kansas State] offer came three weeks ago from Coach Dana Dimel," said Tevin Broussard. "He said they liked my size, the way I play smart, and that I was a ball hawk. He said noticed how I'm always around the ball, do well reading plays and reacting quickly.

"I'm high on Kansas State because they were there from the jump. I'm talking to the coaches about coming up for my official visit in September on my bye week. I know a little bit about the program because [Blinn] has a couple of players up there, but I'd like to know more."

Broussard, 6-foot-1, 200-pounds, went to Blinn after graduation from Central High School in Beaumont, Texas in 2010. In his last year at Central he played on a 9-4 Jaguar team that had Jacoby Hale, now a starting linebacker at Utah, and Keenan Holman, now a starting wide receiver at SMU. Broussard made a mark of his own in his redshirt freshman season by helping Blinn to a 9-2 record and an All-Southwest Conference selection.

"Last year I became a starter at free safety," he said. "I had 56 tackles, two picks, one touchdown, and two tackles for loss. In the Mississippi Bowl, I was named Defensive MVP. I made 12 tackles all in the first half. I got hurt and didn't play at all in the second half."

Although Broussard has only three offers right now from Kansas State, Texas State, and UTSA, he has plenty of schools expressing interest.

"I'm hearing a lot from Ole Miss, Louisiana Tech, Baylor, Memphis,and Arkansas State," Broussard said. "I'm planning on making a decision midway through the season. I want to go somewhere fairly close to home so my Mom will be able to come watch me play."

Broussard said his game has been flourishing during the spring under new Blinn Defensive Coordinator, Mike Muntz. After the season, he will graduate from Blinn College in December and enroll in his chosen four year college for the winter/spring semester.
