Broadnax gaining ground
Cameron Broadnax has wasted little time proving his worth on the gridiron. The Hueytown (Ala.) receiver has done that on the summer camp circuit and his recent camp showing could soon earn him his initial scholarship offer.After missing last year due to transfer rules, rising senior
"I went to a North Carolina camp not long ago," said the 6-foot-3 and 185-pound Broadnax. "It went good and the coaches said they really liked me and I expect to pick up an offer from them soon. They told me they watched my film from the spring and said they just wanted to see me in person.
"Other than that camp, Mississippi State was the only camp I have been to because I have been prepping for the ACT this summer. So this month I may go back to Mississippi State and I may also go to Alabama, Auburn and Tennessee. It just depends on whether or not my mom can also make those trips, too."
Since his solid showing at the Mississippi State camp in June, Broadnax said he has remained in contact with the Bulldog coaches.
"I talk to Coach Geoff Collins a good bit and also with their receivers coach (Angelo Mirando)," noted Broadax, who transferred from Homewood (Ala.) to Hueytown last year. "They tell me to keep working hard and that they want to see me back over there at camp."
Of the schools recruiting him, Broadnax noted a pair of SEC West programs are recruiting him "the hardest" and singled out one of those two programs among his favorites.
"I would probably say Alabama is the main one with me right now," said Broadnax. "But I really like all the schools recruiting me and I am just waiting to see what all happens. I would say Alabama and Mississippi State are the two biggest ones recruiting me the hardest and recruiting me the most."
Just getting the opportunity to prepare for his return to the field is also a welcomed relief for Broadnax along with his increased recruiting interest. After all, his last high school game was in 2009 when he was a sophomore.
"It feels real good to show schools what I can do," said Broadnax. "I got to do that in the spring and I've been able to do that some this summer. When I didn't play last year it was killing me and I was so ready to get back on the field. And since then, I have really improved my strength and I am just motivated to help us win a state championship."
