Broxie: 'I'm Still A Commitment'

Tampa (FL) Middleton defensive end Marcus Broxie gave a soft commitment to NC State last week.

Wolfpack coaches visited the star prospect and he committed during that in-home visit.

"I committed last week when the NC State coaches came by," Marcus Broxie told Pack Pride. "They brought coach Amato, coach Stroud, coach Dixon, and the tight end coach to my house. It was a nice meeting.

"We talked some football and just about everything. I committed to coach Amato but told him that I was still going to visit West Virginia. He was fine with it because he said I have the right to take my visits."

Broxie visited Morgantown this past weekend and had a good trip.

"It went well," he said. "Probably playing Madden with Pat White and Pacman Jones was the highlight. The visit really changed my opinion of Morgantown because it wasn't as country as I thought it was going to be. I liked it."

Is Broxie still committed to NC State?

"I still consider myself a soft commitment to NC State," he said. "I am re-evaluating things because West Virginia is now in the picture, but I'm still a commitment for NC State.

"I had thought about visiting Alabama, but I think I'm done with visits. I've visited different parts of the country, and I'm happy with what I've seen from the last two. I'll probably make my final decision on this Friday after all the coaches come back by. I might wait until signing day, but I will probably have the final decision on Friday."

Broxie has in-home visits scheduled with NC State and West Virginia.

"[West Virginia head coach] Rodriquez is coming in on Wednesday and coach Kirelawich, the West Virginia d-line coach, is coming in on Tuesday," Broxie said. "Coach Stroud is coming in on Thursday for NC State. That should be it for the in-home visits."

A rising prospect from Tampa, Florida, Broxie has over twenty scholarship offers from programs such as NC State, West Virginia, Rutgers, Indiana, South Florida, and UNLV among others. As a senior he tallied 70 tackles and 12 sacks en route to all-conference honors. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound prospect knows that he has a hard decision ahead of him, but can't go wrong with NC State or West Virginia.

"It's not an easy decision on my part," said Broxie. "They are really similiar in a lot of different areas. They both run clean programs, and it's going to be tough."

Broxie plans on majoring in Business Marketing and is qualified academically.
