McBroom, a 6-3, 268-pounder out of NE Oklahoma A&M, will enroll at Washington State in January and go through spring ball. His other finalist was Purdue. McBroom took an official visit there two weeks ago, and then took a visit to Pullman this past weekend.
Give an assist to Brian Odom, WSU's defensive quality control coach.
"At the end of the day, both places would have offered me a great education – Washington State just felt right to me. The coaches were awesome. Coach Odom is an Oklahoma native and he did a really good job on my official visit. I really like the program and I love what they’re doing, it’s going to be even more special in the future," said McBroom.
McBroom is listed by Scout.com as a defensive end, but he play play more inside than outside on the Wazzu d-line.
"I believe they want to use me as a four-technique, kind of on the inside but not right in the middle. Joe Salave’a is a great guy, I know he has some experience bring in the NFL and I’m excited to be coached by him. I think he has a lot to offer me," said McBroom.
McBroom earned All-Southwest Junior College Conference second-team honors this past season after posting 66 tackles -- with 19 for loss and 10 sacks.
"They said when they offered me I have a great motor, I play really, really hard and one thing you can’t teach is effort. They said they feel I can be a key contributor to their defense next year. I just need to work really hard," said McBroom.
He said he's looking forward to doing just that in Washington State's $61 million Football Complex.
"I loved the facilities," said McBroom. "The coaching staff was awesome and they’re going in the right direction – I wanted to be a part of that."
