Athlete Commits to Louisiana Tech

Louisiana Tech picked up a commitment from Brodrick Waters this week. The 5'11" athlete plays quarterback for Independence Community College, but he is coming to Louisiana Tech as a running back.

Brodrick Waters Profile

In 8 games for Independence, Waters has rushed 99 times for 484 yards and 7 touchdowns. Since he plays quarterback for Independence, Waters has the potential to be a dangerous weapon in the wildcat formation for the Bulldogs. Waters has completed just 26 of 80 passes and four interceptions on the season, but he has also thrown for 7 touchdowns and 494 yards. His 19 yards per completion indicate the opportunities for the big play. This is also indicated in the fact that he throws a touchdown for every 3.7 completions.

As dangerous as Waters has the potential to be through the air, he is mainly coming in to run the ball. The Florida native has gained over 1,000 yards in his two seasons at Independence. In 2009, He rushed 96 times for 618 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Waters should help fill the void that senior Phillip Livas will create when he graduates after this season. Livas has lined up in the backfield, at wide receiver, and in the slot in his time at Tech. Waters will be able to contribute at all three positions as well.
