Broussard's recruitment is picking up speed

Spring is an important season for most college football prospects. Many of them find their schedules filled with combines and junior days, in an effort to heat up their recruitment and maximize exposure. Plano (TX) Plano West linebacker Nathan Broussard is no exception.

The 6-foot-4 225-pound three-star linebacker will be heading out to the west coast this upcoming weekend to participate in Stanford's junior day. Broussard also plans to visit Texas Tech, Houston, Notre Dame and Vanderbilt to participate in their junior day activities. He previously visited in Oklahoma State and Tulsa.

The Plano West standout currently holds offers from Stanford and Tulsa, and expects more to come soon.

"Vanderbilt and Notre Dame have been recruiting me for a while now, I think both of them are pretty close to offering."

As of now, Nathan Broussard has been able to narrow things down to a top-12, but they could change in the future.

"Right now the schools in my top-12 are (in no particular order) Stanford, Tulsa, Houston, Notre Dame, Kansas, Iowa, Vanderbilt, Texas A&M, California, Nebraska, Texas and TCU."

Some of the things that he is looking for in his future college destination are a close relationship with the coaches and teammates and a strong academic curriculum.

"Education is a major priority in my college decision. I plan on majoring in either business, architecture or engineering, so I want the school I choose to be strong in those areas."

Broussard could possibly play multiple positions at the collegiate level. He is being recruited at both linebacker and defensive end.

"Some schools are recruiting me as a linebacker and some are recruiting me to play as a hybrid defensive end. I am switching to defensive end for my senior season and I might play some tight end on offense."

The Plano West defender currently has no timeline as to when he will be making a final decision on his recruitment.

As a junior, Broussard recorded 71 tackles, 2 sacks, and a fumble recovery.
