Cordell Broadus calls Irish offer 'humbling'
Notre Dame assistant coach Mike Denbrock spent Thursday of Notre Dame's bye week making recruiting rounds in California. During a stop at Diamond Bar High, Denbrock extended an offer to junior four-star wide receiver Cordell Broadus. "It's really humbling to get an offer from Notre Dame," Broadus said. "I can see myself wearing green and gold. They have a very rich tradition, great coaches and an incredible education." Broadus had expressed interest in the Irish before Notre Dame offered, and Broadus says the Irish will surely receive a visit. "I texted my dad (Snoop Lion) about the offer," Broadus said. "He was very excited for me, and he said Notre Dame is one of the best schools in the nation. So, I'm exited to get out there for a visit. Education is first and then I'll look at how the football team is, and Notre Dame offers both of those things." "My dad helps guide me through the process and he wants what's best for my future, but I'm the one choosing the school and playing football there, so it's my decision," Broadus added. Broadus' offer list is growing steadily, but the 6-foot-2, 190-pound wide out says he's not naming favorites. "I don't have any favorites at the moment," Broadus said. "I'm focused on my season. We've got a lot of big games coming up." Broadus has six touchdown receptions so far in 2013. "I think I do a lot of things well," Broadus said. "I catch, block and jam defensive backs. You know, I think I'd be a good fit at Notre Dame." Broadus is a four-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 5 wide receiver in 2015.
