Broderick Binns Profile
Three-star defensive end Broderick Binns (6-2, 235, 4.7) from St Paul Cretin Derham (Minn.) has scheduled an official visit to Iowa on September 30 and is also planning on visiting Kansas State in either September or October.
"Iowa is a nice school," Binns said. "I love the campus and the coaches are really hands on. I also know a couple of guys there already so it would be like a family thing. A bunch of guys from my high school go there. I really feel comfortable there and felt welcome by everybody when I was at their camp.
"I also know a few guys at Kansas State and they said that the team is on its way up," Binns said. "They really believe they'll be a top program again. I'm working on setting up a visit with them now. Once I take my visits, I'll be able to rank these schools a little better."
Although he denies a leader, Binns favors Iowa, Michigan, Kansas State, Colorado and Minnesota and all have offered. He has over 10 total scholarships.
Binns also attended a camp at Michigan. "Their camp was huge compared to Iowa." Binns said. "It wasn't as hands on as the Iowa camp, but the program is great overall. The coaches are really knowledgeable and they produce great players every year.
"Colorado has new coaches and I'm really curious to see how they do this year."
His first game is on September 1 against Hastings.
"I want to major in business management and that's gonna be important to me," Binns said. "As far as football goes, I want to go where the coaches are hands on and supportive. I'm not too concerned about Rose Bowls or bowl games or that stuff. I just want a good environment where I can play football and have fun."
He reports a 3.6 GPA and a 17 ACT.
