Jarrell Broxton Talks 'Cuse Offer

Syracuse is looking towards the JUCO ranks again in 2014 to add talent to their roster. A new target has come onto the Orange radar in Lackawanna product Jarell Broxton. He discusses his Syracuse offer and more inside.

A new target emerged when Syracuse offensive line coach Pat Perles went to visit Jermaine Eluemunor at Lackawanna Community College in Pennsylvania. A different member of the offensive line stood out in guard Jarrell Broxton.

Coach Perles was so impressed he offered the 6-foot-5 offensive lineman.

"It was the o-line coach there (Pat Perles)," Broxton explained. "I had a spring game yesterday and he was there to evaluate me. The way I play and my aggressiveness fits the program. They said they were offering me.

"I was excited because it's great to be in the position I'm in. It's a great feeling to get offered by schools across the country. I was excited."

Broxton is still getting to know the Syracuse coaches and the program. He is hoping to continue to learn more, but as of now, he doesn't know much.

"I don't know much," Broxton admitted. "I mean, they have a good football team and they have a tremendous basketball program there."

Broxton said a visit was discussed during Perles trip, however he hasn't decided if he will take that trip. A lot will depend on whether Syracuse makes the cut or not.

"He said something about a visit," Broxton said. "But he didn't say what dates or whatever. It's something I will take into consideration. I want to see what happens this summer. But I'm going to stay in contact with them. See how things go and where I'm going to visit."

Broxton is up to five offers. None are standing out right now, as he is still taking the process in. He wants to see how things progress as summer approaches.

"I'm kind of keeping things wide open because I only have five offers," Broxton admitted. "Baylor, FAU, Wisconsin, Syracuse and UCLA. I'd like to decide probably by the end of my summer."
