Broadnax likes what he sees from the Frogs

TCU commit Joseph Broadnax is impressed with the Frogs 2-0 start.

TCU currently has the No. 27 recruiting class in the nation at the moment with 15 commitments in their 2015 class. Among the early verbals to the Frogs was Dallas Bryan Adams defensive tackle Joseph Broadnax.

The nation’s No. 36 defensive tackle prospect committed to the Frogs back in February and despite strong interest from others, he’s remained solid to TCU.

In fact, Broadnax likes what he’s seeing from the Frogs as they’ve began their 2014 campaign with a 2-0 record. Broadnax was one of many talented prospects in attendance a few weeks ago when the Frogs’ dismantled Minnesota 30-7.

“They played wonderful; Chucky and Davion played great,” Broadnax said of the win over the B1G opponent. “The defense is wonderful; they created a bunch of turnovers. It was wonderful. Game day is a great experience; I love the fans. What really shocked me is this one fan came up and said ‘Joe, we can’t wait to have you, we need you on the d-line’. How could he know who I was?”

Although he likes what he sees in the Frogs, things haven’t gone quite as well for his team as Adams currently sits 1-2. They begin district play this Friday as they host Carrollton Newman Smith. Adams lost last week by 1 to Seagoville and Broadnax knows in order for the losing streak to stop, more points must be scored in the beginning.

“We need to move the ball more and keep the defense off the field so we won’t be as tired,” he said. “We need to put points on the board early.”

On an individual note, Broadnax has raced out to a very impressive senior campaign as he’s collected 19 tackles, 6 TFL’s and forced 3 fumbles through three games.

“For me, I think I’m having the best season of my life,” Broadnax said. “The TCU coaches told me that they watched my film and they loved it. They’re very excited about how my film was.”

Each game Broadnax routinely draws double and sometimes triple teams from opponents to prevent him from reaching the backfield.

“That’s big respect right there; to get triple teamed means a lot,” he said. “It means I’m putting in work.”

On the recruiting front, Broadnax remains solid to the Frogs despite growing interest from others.

“No new teams have really been coming but Texas Tech, Fresno State and UTSA have all been coming on strong,” he said. “Coach Chambers from Texas messages me sometimes but we don’t talk near as much as me and Coach Luper.”
