EXCLUSIVE: 2015 RB Nick Brossette Offered by Ole Miss

2015 RB Nick Brossette (6’0, 215) of University Lab in Louisiana is coming off a highly productive season in which he totaled 2,210 total yards and 45 touchdowns. The sophomore sensation previously held four offers from LSU, Alabama, Florida St., and UCLA.

Yesterday, the highly coveted recruit added his fifth offer to his already impressive resume: the Ole Miss Rebels.

Brossette talked with Varsity Preps about how he received his latest offer. “My coach sent me a text message to call Ole Miss WR Coach Grant Heard. I called him, he knew who I was when he answered, and he told me that they really liked my game and were extending an offer. Coach Heard said that they really needed a running back like me.”

University Lab’s standout mentioned that “I really like Ole Miss. I want to learn more about their school and program.”

The young Louisiana back likes what he sees in Tallahassee. “I like the tradition at FSU. I like Jimbo Fisher and how he has the program looking. I like the Seminoles.”

He spoke about his SEC offers. “LSU is close to home and family, and they have a rich tradition,” he said. “I like some things about Alabama. I like their coaching staff and that they won back-to-back national championships.”

Of UCLA, he said he liked the tradition and education that the Bruins offer.

Brossette Sophomore Highlights

Brossette told Varsity Preps that he’s also hearing from Notre Dame, Nebraska, Florida, and Texas A&M. He’s headed to College Station soon to check out the Aggies. “I’m going to Texas A&M April 5th for Junior Day. I’m looking to learn a lot more about them during my visit.”

The number one factor when choosing a program is where he feels most comfortable. “I’m looking for a program that feels like home. I’ll follow my heart when I make my decision.”

The promise of early playing time won’t enter into his decision making. “I’d like to play early, but wherever my coaches need me, special teams or anything, I’ll do what they ask and do anything for my team.”

Brossette said he’s in no rush to make a verbal commitment. “I’m going to take all the time I need, I still have time. I want to look at all my offers and assess each situation.”
