Is Broyles A Wide Receiver Or Cornerback?

Norman's Ryan Broyles is off to a tremendous start to the season as he scored three touchdowns in the Tigers opening win over rival Norman North. He followed that up with another three touchdown performance last Friday in a 35-13 win over Moore. Broyles, who is considered one of the top defensive back prospects in the country, is now making plenty of noise on offense at wide receiver.

In the Moore game he caught a 57-yard touchdown pass and scored on two runs from the receiver position. In all he had six receptions for 151 yards.

"I know," Broyles said while laughing when asked about his prowess and the attention he is creating as a wide receiver. "I've always thought of myself as a cornerback, but today I asked my coach what position he thought I should play and he said receiver."

Broyles has started making official visits. He went to Texas A&M on Sept. 2. "A&M was pretty good," said the 6-0, 175-pound Broyles. "I had a chance to talk to more coaches there and even sat down for a while with Coach (Dennis) Franchionne. A&M is definitely involved."

Broyles is also scheduled to visit South Carolina on Sept. 23.

"One of my eighth-grade coaches was a wide receiver under (Steve) Spurrier Jr. at OU, so he got me in good with them," said Broyles.

Other than those two visits he said he plans to schedule a visit to Texas Tech, but he added he will be at his top school to watch them play this weekend.

"Oklahoma State -- they are tops right now," said Broyles. "I am going to their game this Saturday. I know they are close but I will probably take an official visit there too."

In the meantime Broyles has to prepare for a showdown game at home this week as Norman (2-0) prepares to host Enid (2-0) in a non-district showdown in Oklahoma's Class 6A. Enid has quarterback/safety Austin Box, who is already verbally committed to Oklahoma.
