Hilltoppers to host recruits at Spring Game

WKU football will welcome a group of recruits to The Hill for the program's annual spring game

In addition to prepping for the final session of spring practice, WKU head coach Jeff Brohm and his staff will also welcome a group of recruits, along with some of the members of the 2015 recruiting, on campus for program's annual Red-White Spring Practice.

While on campus, the recruits will tour the program's facilities, learn more about the University has to offer, visit with coaches and spend time on the field during the team's spring game.

Here's a look at some of those that are expected to be on The Hill this Saturday.

Sheldon Evans, a Scout.com three-star running back from Roswell, Ga., currently holds a scholarship offer from the Hilltoppers. The 5-foot-10, 200-pound prospect rushed for over 1,900 yards in helping Roswell to the Georgia 6A title game.  Evans, who garnered All-Area and All-State honors as a junior, also holds offers from Appalachian State, Georgia Southern, Middle Tennessee State, Minnesota, Tulane and others.

Another Georgia target on the WKU prospect list is Tucker running back Chris Broadwater. The 6-foot, 210-pound back also plays linebacker.  A first team All-County selection as a junior, Broadwater has collected five scholarship offers to date. Joining WKU on his offer sheet is Austin Peay, South Alabama, Jacksonville State and Miami of Ohio.

Among the in-state prospects that will be visiting is Louisville Male cornerback Nate Hobbs. After helping Male to the state 6A title last fall, the 6-foot, 170-pound defensive back has started to attract attention from college coaches.  Eastern Kentucky, Eastern Michigan and Ball State have already extended scholarship offers and many others, including the Hilltoppers, continue to increase interest.
