TCU Commit Broadnax Talks Recruiting

ARLINGTON, Texas -- caught up with TCU commit Joseph Broadnax at Saturday's Dallas Nike Football SPARQ Combine.

Not surprisingly, three-star defensive tackle Joseph Broadnax from Dallas Bryan Adams has continued to get attention from college programs despite his Feb. 27 commitment to TCU.

Broadnax, who measured 5-11 1/2, 303 pounds at Saturday's Dallas Nike Football SPARQ Combine at AT&T Stadium, posted a SPARQ score of 76.77, which is a respectable score for a player who weighs more than 300 pounds and isn't best suited for testing performances.

Nevertheless, Broadnax recorded an fairly impressive 5.15-second 40-yard dash, only 0.05 behind five-star defensive tackle and The Opening invitee Daylon Mack, who had a SPARQ score of 89.94.

In addition to his TCU offer, Broadnax, who is ranked by as the nation's No. 29 defensive tackle in the 2015 class, has offers from North Texas and UTSA.

"UTSA, they've been coming on real strong," Broadnax said. "I'm pretty set with TCU, but I'm still gonna take a visit to UTSA soon. I'm gonna go to the Texas camp this summer, and Texas Tech also."

Broadnax said "Oklahoma, Texas, Tech, and Baylor" had shown interest lately as well.

"We start spring practice Friday, so that should help" bring more schools through Bryan Adams, said Broadnax, who is No. 91 on the latest Texas Hot 100 state rankings.

Broadnax plays the nose in Bryan Adams' 3-4 defense, but he also occasionally plays the odd-front 5-technique spot. He said that the schools recruiting him like him at that nose spot.

Broadnax added that he's working on his technique in preparation for his senior season. As a junior in 2013, Broadnax totaled 96 tackles, 9 1/2 sacks, five forced fumbles, and five fumble recoveries to earn District 12-4A Defensive MVP recognition.
