Huskers on Broadway

If there might be one thing to keep an eye on it might be Nebraska's new found interest in a more "dual-threat" quarterback going forward. They have already offered a very good one in Terrance Broadway from Baton Rouge (La.) Capitol. Broadway is in off-season workouts and is getting ready to run track again for Capital Senior High School.

Terrance Broadway is a very athletic quarterback for Baton Rouge (La.) Capitol Senior High School. The 6-foot-1 and 200-pound Broadway has 4.56/40 speed and is getting ready for track right now.

"We are doing our off-season workouts right now," Broadway said. "I run track. I ran the 4x100 last year. We have been just doing a lot of conditioning this year."

Last season was a shortened season for Broadway because of an injury, but he still completed 64.5% of his passes for 1,257 yards with 15 touchdowns and five interceptions. He added 240 yards rushing and three scores on 20 attempts.

"I missed some time to a sprained ankle. I got all-district, all-metro and all-state honorable mention."

On the field, Broadway is someone that his coaches and his team can look to come up with a big play. That big play could be the winning score of just picking up the third down.

"I am a leader most of all, that's the main thing. I can control the offense. I can change the outcome of the game with one play throwing the ball or passing the ball.

"If it's a situation when it's 3rd and 20, we can get that most of the time. From the quarterback position, I can throw it long or if it's short yardage then I can run."

There are two schools that have already offered Broadway. However, he and his coach have been getting his junior film out and are receiving interest from a couple of other schools and more are sure to follow.

"I just have two offers right now. They are from Alabama and Nebraska. I am getting a lot of interest from Houston and from Tennessee. My coach is sending out film and I think more could be on the way."

The Nebraska offer kind of came out of left field for Broadway. He likes the idea that Nebraska is up and coming and knows a little bit about their head coach.

"I don't know a lot about Nebraska. They were a surprise offer for me. When I picked up the offer in September it was a surprise. I have spoken with the recruiting coordinator there.

"I know that Bo Pelini is the head coach there and that he was at LSU. I know that they are an upcoming school and I would like to be part of an up and coming program."

Broadway missed junior day at Alabama, but he will be heading back there for their spring game. He will also be heading over to Houston for junior day and their spring game as well as one combine is planned right now.

"The first junior day that I will be taking will be to Houston. I will be going to their spring game and I think that I will be going to Alabama's spring game.

"With my schedule right now, and school, it's difficult to say where else I might go. I am going to try and make the Elite 11 combine in Atlanta."
