Broadnax Adding Interest

Dallas Bryan Adams defensive tackle Joseph Broadnax is picking up recent interest.

TCU 2015 commitment Joe Broadnax made his decision to commit to TCU in February and ever since he's continued to draw interest from other programs.

The 6-foot-1, 305-pounder recently visited Baylor for a junior day but last weekend he made a visit to Ft. Worth to see his future team go through a spring scrimmage.

Broadnax was impressed with the new tempo from both the offense and defense last Saturday.

"It was good, I liked the practice and I thought the defense played real good," he said. "The defense was up tempo and the offense was real up tempo."

Following the two hour practice, Broadnax had a chance to sit down with TCU head coach Gary Patterson and runningbacks coach Curtis Luper.

"I stayed for a little while after practice was over and I sat and talked with Coach P and Coach Luper," he said. "They said they were ready to have me now."

Since his commitment to TCU, interest has increased for Broadnax from fellow Big 12 programs Baylor and Texas Tech. The big defensive tackle feels an offer could be coming soon from both programs.

"I think the offer will come in the spring but they really haven't talked about it," Broadnax said of the offers.

In addition to his visit to Baylor, Broadnax plans to take a visit to Lubbock to see Texas Tech soon.

"Coach (Eric) Morris was telling me that the defensive line coach has asked about me and they want to see me," he said. "I talked to my dad and we're planning on taking a trip up there."

Although Broadnax has listened to other programs, he still maintains that he is solid with his commitment to TCU. For now, Broadnax says his other visits are just part of a recruiting process.

"They haven't given me a hard time really, but it's just recruiting," he said.

Broadnax will head to Desoto this Saturday to compete in the Nike Football Training Camp. He has one goal in mind.

"I'm hoping I can get to The Opening," he said. "I'm going to try to do my best; work hard and ball out."
