LSU RB commit talks Texas visit

Nicholas Brossette is a four-star running back committed to LSU. However, the 6-foot, 210-pound Brossette has not stopped exploring all options, including the Texas Longhorns.

Baton Rouge (LA) University Laboratory School is home to one of the top running backs in America. Nicholas Brossette made an unofficial visit to the University of Texas Saturday and has something to think about.

"My mom, little brother, big brother and his two little girls and his wife, my trainer, and uncle all came with me," Brossette said. "It was a pretty good visit. The facilities were amazing!"

Coach Tommie Robinson could be the guy coaching Brossette over the next several seasons, and the four-star back liked what he had to say.

"Coach Robinson is a cool coach, and he was honest about everything," Brossette said. "He will not sugarcoat anything. He is going to be up front with you, and I like him."

Corner back coach Chris Vaughn has been aggressively recruiting the state of Louisiana. Coach Vaughn has made Brossette a top priority for the class of 2015. But will it pay off in the end?

"Coach Vaughn is a good and energetic coach," Brossette said. "We talk a lot about everything. It was great being with him today, and they all just made me feel comfortable - as if I was at home."

In any top tier player's recruitment the head coach is a vital piece of the puzzle. On Saturday, Brossette had a chance to spend time with Charlie Strong and see first-hand what he is all about.

"I like coach Strong because we have a lot in common," Brossette said."A lot of people don't know that his mother had the same cancer my mom had. He knows how it feels to be in this position as a child.

"He is a cool, laid-back coach and is going to be honest with you. As of right now I can't say where Texas stands because I have to think on it. But it was a great visit."

Brossette is a fantastic running back prospect and would be a huge addition for Strong and the offensive coaching staff. He would go a long way in bringing the Longhorn offense back to where it needs to be.
