TCU On Top For Broadnax

Dallas (TX) Bryan Adams defensive tackle Joseph Broadnax picked up a TCU offer last week.

Dallas Bryan Adams 2015 defensive tackle Joseph Broadnax is quickly receiving interest from several colleges early in his recruiting process.

Several teams have dropped by Bryan Adams in recent weeks to see the 6-foot-1, 300-pounder including TCU, Texas, Texas Tech, Kansas, Houston, Oklahoma State and Ole Miss among many others.

Last Thursday, Broadnax received his first offer when the Horned Frogs extended a full scholarship to the rising prospect.

"It felt so good to get my first D-1 offer and from a good school at that," Broadnax said of receiving his first offer. "It's a good school with a good football team and good football program. I love it."

Just a few days after receiving his offer from TCU, Broadnax and his father made the short drive west to Ft. Worth to attend the Frogs' first junior day. Although urged by his father to make a commitment, Broadnax didn't make a decision while on campus but the visit was impressive enough to put TCU as the team to beat.

"I loved it, me and my dad loved it," he said. "My dad was ready for me to commit and I was telling him that I love it but I plan to commit in the spring. It could even be before the spring, but I really like TCU and that's who I'm leaning toward as my number one option."

Broadnax said a variety of items stood out on his visit from the coaching staff, facilities and TCU's approach to academics.

"I love the coaching staff and the stadium," he said. "I really love how they put everything in the classroom first. It's just 45 minutes from my house and a great atmosphere, great campus, facilities and great coaches."

With TCU sitting at the top of his list, could a commitment be coming from Broadnax? If TCU does end up being his choice, he and TCU coach Gary Patterson have already discussed the value of a commitment.

"He told me he'd love to have me," he said of his conversation with Patterson. "He said when I'm ready to get married to let him know. He said right now we're dating, but when I commit we're married."

Since his offer from TCU last week, interest has picked up this week according to Broadnax. TCU visited his school on Monday, three more programs stopped by.

"OSU and North Texas and Oklahoma came by today," he said. "OSU and North Texas want me to come up and see their campus. "Texas Tech wants me to come up for junior day. Ole Miss wants me to come down in the summer time."

Broadnax was named District 12-4A Defensive MVP in 2013. He also leads Bryan Adams on the hardwood, averaging 15.8 points per game.
