Broadus Sets Visits, Has "Slight Leader"

OCT. 1 -- Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman wideout Cordell Broadus lined up his first two official visits and is still planning a Signing Day announcement...

Cordell Broadus has been a nice addition to the nation's top ranked Gaels, who survived a brutal non-league schedule and finished 6-0. On the season, Broadus has 19 catches for 276 yards and three touchdowns for a very balanced Gorman offense and has shown flashes of why he's rated among the top receivers out West.

Broadus has excellent size and looks a little bigger overtime we see him. He looks all of 6-3, 200 pounds with a strong frame and soft hands. He's not a burner and won't provide a ton of yards after the catch, but he uses his size well, has nice body control and will make the tough catch over the middle.

On the recruiting front, Broadus has been consistent in saying he wants to take all five of his official visits and he recently set up his first two.

"I'm going to Florida State (Nov. 29) and Notre Dame (Dec. 13)," Broadus said. "I'm not close on setting up any others but I definitely plan to take all five and then make my decision on Signing Day. The schools recruiting me the hardest are those two schools I have visits with plus LSU and UCLA.

"UCLA may have a slight lead just because I know the coaches so well but honestly I'm open to everyone still. Notre Dame is a school I've always wanted to visit and one my teammates, Nicco Fertitta, is going there. Florida State and LSU are great schools too with great tradition so I'm really excited about taking those visits and seeing what it's like there."

For now, Broadus is focused on his Gorman team and keeping things rolling on the field.

"We're ranked No. 1 in the nation and have a chance to win a national championship so I'm very excited about that," Broadus said. "We played a great pre-season schedule, we had six great teams and we beat all of them so that's huge. Now we have to finish it up and win a state tittle and I'm looking forward to going out with a bang and having a great senior season."
