Broussard Reflects on Michigan Offer

Phenix City (Ala.) Central 2016 cornerback John Broussard talks Michigan offer, his top schools of interest and more.

John Broussard is one of the top cornerback prospects from the South and is considered a SEC lean.

However, that didn’t stop Michigan from reaching out recently to extend an offer to the four-star cornerback.

“It was their recruiting coordinator [Chris Patridge], then I talked with the defensive coordinator [D.J. Durkin] who made the offer,” he said. “It’s a nice prestigious school. But besides that, I still need to get the know the coaches and stuff. Then they can get into my top-schools.”

At 6-foot, 165-pounds, Broussard stars at Phenix City (Ala.) Central. He currently has double digit offers. Although he does have his favorites. In no particular order, he says Auburn, Mississippi State, LSU and Kentucky are sticking out early in his recruitment.

“I don’t think staying in the SEC will factor in my decision,” he said. “But I’m just going to look for the best school for me. Where I can do what I can do. It will play a factor but not a big factor.”

But with his latest Michigan offer, Broussard says a visit to Ann Arbor may be in his future.

“It would be a possibility that I would,” he said. “I will try to visit this [summer]. So I expect it to be good.” During that trip, Broussard says he would like to sit down and talk with U-M coach Jim Harbaugh.

“I don’t know much about him,” he said of Harbaugh. “I just know he was in the NFL. But besides that, I think he would be a cool guy to sit down and talk to. He probably knows what to say because he’s been through it at the highest level. So it would probably be a good conversation.”
