Four-star Broadway lands an Oregon offer

Four-star quarterback Terrance Broadway has seen a steady flow of coaches come watch him perform this spring, most of which have promptly followed up their visits with scholarship offers. On Wednesday, Broadway found out that a recent performance landed him yet another offer, this one a big one.

Oregon has been recruiting the Baton Rouge quarterback since early in the process for Broadway but now the staff has decided to extend an offer his way.

"I got an email from a coach that told me to call him and I called up and he said the offer would be there in the next two or three days," Broadway said on Wednesday. "It was good. They've been watching me throw during the spring and I guess they wanted to see me throw live and I guess they liked what they saw."

With Oregon's wide open offense and recent success, the offer was something that got Broadway interested, particularly because his athletic ability fits the offense perfectly.

"I really like the program, the facilities and the academic standpoint and what they do on offense when they had Dennis Dixon and they ran the zone reads," he said. "I don't think they have had a mobile quarterback since Dixon. I'm really interested in them."

While the Oregon offer certainly has caught Broadway's attention, there are other schools that are close to offering that he is keeping a close eye on, particularly Ole Miss.

"Ole Miss is going to be a big contender in this decision making because I went down there for their junior day and really liked everything I saw and heard," he said. "I liked the facilities and academics and everything they said about Coach Houston Nutt.

"I'm not sure about the Ole Miss offer but from what I'm hearing, I think I'm going to get the offer because they watched me throw too. It'll probably come in the mail but I'm not sure yet."

The spring has clearly been a success for Broadway but he is more encouraged by the play of his young receivers.

"Everything turned out better than we thought," he said. "We lost three of our receivers and were very young at the receiver spot. The receivers really took the time and worked hard after practice and really did well at the spring game."

While Broadway doesn't yet have his camp schedule planned for the summer yet, he does anticipate getting out to several colleges before the fall.
