Recruiting: Broyles Says OSU's In The Mix

Norman, Okla., standout Ryan Broyles went into the season considered the best defensive back prospect in Oklahoma and one of the best in the Midlands region. But as the regular season winds down he is now being considered one of the most explosive offensive talents around.

Broyles has still been great on defense, but his offensive numbers, both rushing and receiving, have become eye popping. Just last Friday he had four touchdowns and 322 all-purpose yards. That yardage total included a 95-yard kickoff return for a score early in the 56-31 win over Lawton Eisenhower.

Broyles followed up that huge performance on Saturday with an unofficial visit to Oklahoma State for the homecoming game with Texas A&M. Both are schools that Broyles is considering, and he had previously made an official visit to Texas A&M.

"It went pretty good," said the 5-11, 170-pound speedster of the evening. "OSU is coming up and I was proud of the way they played."

As mentioned, Broyles has visited Texas A&M back at the beginning of the season, but more recently he has been to Michigan State and will make the trip to Texas Tech for an official visit this weekend.

"Michigan State went pretty good," said Broyles. "It was big time football and they were playing Ohio State, but I didn't get to see as much because I wasn't there that long."

Broyles said he will also visit South Carolina and just needs to confirm the weekend he is going and he thinks he will also visit Tennessee.

"I haven't set that up, but I think Tennessee wants me to visit," added Broyles. "Oklahoma State is definitely in there, but since that is driving distance I can go up there anytime. I don't have anything like that (list of favorites) until after I take my officials (visits). I've got a couple of other things going on and I'm going to let my season play out until it's time (to start making a decision)."
