Tennessee athlete DeMarius McBroom was among the large group of recruits that took in Western Kentucky's Junior Day and was impressed by the experience.
"I've visited many schools and the thing I like most about WKU is the training facility," he said. "Everything I need if I get injured is close together."
the 5-foot-10, 165-pound McBroom, who plays both cornerback and wide receiver for Wilson Central in Lebanon, Tenn., was also impressed by the energy felt throughout the program, the determination to continue to build the Hilltopper program and make sure players succeed in school.
"I also like the mentality there," he continued. "The spirit that runs through not only the football team, but also the school. The fact they put academics first is a major plus for me. I also like the repoire that the coaches have not only with each other but with the team."
In addition to touring the program's facilities and campus, McBroom also spent time visiting with members of the coaching staff.
"While having meetings with the coaches they made me feel like I was already a part of the team," he said. "I say that because they sat down and talked with me personally. Most schools I visited have had me in a large group and didn't give me that personal attention."
McBroom has also visited Austin Peay, Florida State, Georgia, Louisville, Middle Tennessee and Tennessee Tech.
