Recruiting: Broyles Named Defensive MVP

Cornerback Ryan Broyles of Norman, Okla., attended the Nike Combine at Texas A&M this past weekend and came away with a huge boost in his recruiting reputation.

"I went down there just to see where I was at, and I ended up being named the Defensive MVP of the combine," said the speedy Broyles. "I ran the 40 in 4.51 and did a shuttle drill, and then they called my name and told me the best performers got to do some extra stuff. We did a broad jump, an L-drill, and then a reaction time test. Next thing I know I'm being named the Defensive MVP."

Broyles, who visited Oklahoma State for their first spring scrimmage in April, said he is up to five offers with Kansas, Oklahoma State, Mississippi State, Texas Tech and Michigan State having promised scholarships.

The 6-0, 170-pounder is busy right now with track and as a three-sport star has an offer to play AAU basketball this summer.

"I don't think I am going to because I need to work and there are football camps that I want to go to," said Broyles.

He will also be keeping tabs on the mail box because after his performance in College Station there will be more mail and more offers coming his way.
