Broadus:Three Recruiting Hardest

2015 four-star Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman wide receiver Cordell Broadus is one of UCLA's top targets, and he says three schools are recruiting him hardest...

We had a chance to see Cordell Broadus twice this spring, at the SoCal NIKE Camp in March and the Passing Down 7v7 Tournament in April. He was very impressive at both events and has elevated his game quite a bit in the last year.

In fact, Monday night, Broadus received some big news when he was invited to attend The Opening on the NIKE Camp in July.

"That was such an incredible honor and I feel so blessed to be invited," Broadus said. "I can't wait to get out there and compete against all the other great players from across the country, it's going to be a great time and I'm very humbled by it all."

As for his new surroundings, Broadus said it was an adjustment but he's very happy with it now.

"That first week of school was a big adjustment for me, it was a different world for me," Broadus said. "I really love it here and the community is so supportive. Any time you go out wearing Gorman football gear, you're treated like a celebrity and everyone wants to say hello and wish us luck.

"The facilities and the campus in general is incredible and the workouts are the toughest I've ever been in. We go so hard but I like and I'm ready to get the season started. I'm still learning the system and the plays but the coaches have been great with me and I've been staying after practice to get as much work in as I can."

On the recruiting front, Broadus said three schools are recruiting him the hardest and he has one unofficial visit planned.

"I'm hearing the most from USC, Notre Dame and UCLA," Broadus said. "I'm talking to Tee Martin at USC, Coach Mora and Coach Meat (Martin) at UCLA and Coach Kelly and Denbrock at Notre Dame and really like all those guys a lot.

"I've been to USC and UCLA several times and I'm going to visit Notre Dame June 20 with my teammate Nicco Fertitta. They're having a camp but I'm not going to work out, I'm just going to visit and meet the coaches and see the campus. "

Broadus also plans to take all five of his official visits and has a good idea on three of them right now.

"I'm still trying to figure out all five official visits but I know I will for sure visit LSU, Florida State and Notre Dame again," Broadus said. "I don't know if those will be during or after the season. I'm supposed to sit down next month with Coach Sanchez and figure this out.

"I would love to visit during the season to see the game atmosphere and how the teams prepare but if he doesn't want his players to leave during the season, I'll take them after we're done. I'll have time because I'm waiting until Signing Day to make my decision so I'm not even close to committing anywhere right now."
