H-Town is becoming better known as OSU town.
Oklahoma State has snagged a major commitment for the Class of 2005 from Houston Booker T. Washington receiver Jeremy Broadway. The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Broadway is one of the best receivers in the Lone Star State and he turned down 13 other scholarship offers to head to Stillwater.
“OSU was in my heart,” Broadway, who camped at OSU this past weekend, said. “I went ahead and committed to them after spending the whole weekend up there. When I went up there I didn’t see a thing that I didn’t like. I loved everything about the school, the campus and the town.”
Broadway, who clocked a 4.42-second time in the 40-yard dash at OSU, turned down scholarship offers from Syracuse, Arizona, Kansas, Kansas State, Utah, Houston, Texas Tech, Tulane, Wisconsin, Missouri to commit to the Cowboys. He also cited a close friendship with former Galena Park (Texas) North Shore quarterback Bobby Reid as a big reason for picking OSU.
“He and Stephen (James) showed me around all weekend,” Broadway said. “They showed me the ropes. Coming from the same situation as me and them being from Houston, I felt right at home. They also talked about how the coaches would take care of you and make sure that you’re not going to get into a bad situation.”
Broadway had 30 receptions for 620 yards and nine scores as a junior. He has a 3.0 grade point average and a 740 on the SAT.
