Broadus lands USC offer

Cordell Broadus just landed a major offer from USC but the 2015 wide receiver from Diamond Bar, Calif., is nowhere close to making his commitment.
The 6-foot-3, 186-pound prospect is still taken aback by the offer that came after USC assistant coach James Cregg recently stopped by spring practice.
It's a big one but Broadus said it's way too early to make any decisions.
"They stopped by the school," Broadus said. "Coach Cregg was video recording practice and he brought it back to USC to show coach (Lane) Kiffin and coach Kiffin said he liked what he saw.
"They invited me to their junior day and they seemed kind of interested. I was surprised they gave me an offer though because they don't usually offer sophomores. I was in shock."
USC is the latest offer for Broadus, who also has Cal, Duke, Oregon State, UCLA and Washington on his list.
The offer from the Trojans is definitely big in his recruitment as Broadus said his entire family loves the USC football program. That could carry a lot of weight as his recruitment continues into his junior season.
"That offer means a lot because growing up my family loved USC and that is one of the best schools in the nation with the education and the football program," Broadus said.
"Some of my family even played there so that means a lot to me. It is a good school to me but I'm not committing until my senior year."
More interest is also on the way for Broadus as he said Tennessee and San Jose State recently reached out.
Broadus, who looked good earlier this year at the Army National Combine and at other national events, could become a national recruit in the 2015 class. He has been sidelined recently from the 7on7 circuit with a minor knee injury.
