Brodie gets in-home visit from Southern Miss

Dacula running back Cole Brodie did not have the type of senior season he had anticipated after an ankle injury forced him to miss several games. Still waiting for his first offer, Brodie received an in-home visit from Southern Miss coach Jay Johnson on Wednesday night.

After missing several games with an ankle injury, Cole Brodie was still able to muster 856 yards rushing and twelve touchdowns on the season.

On Wednesday, the 5-foot-10, 181-pound running back from Dacula, Ga. received an in-home visit from Southern Miss offensive coordinator Jay Johnson.

"He didn't give me an offer," said Cole Brodie. "He just came by and said they were still interested, but they're still waiting to see what other running back's situations are. He said they had to go on who is the best qualified as far as character, how their grades are, and stuff like that. He just basically said that it's still too soon, but that they are definitely interested in me. He can't make an offer right now, but he would stay in touch."

Coach Johnson also talked to Brodie about taking an official visit to Southern Miss.

"He said that they would know all of that after the holidays. Everything dies down around the holidays and then picks back up at the beginning of the year. He said they're still evaluating film and checking out everybody. He did say he would like for me to come down for a visit but couldn't say for sure when it would be."

His first offer may be just around the corner. Charleston-Southern, Liberty University, Elon, William and Mary, and University of Albany are showing interest.
