Shortly after Will Muschamp took the head coaching job at South Carolina, one of Auburn’s top commitments had some thinking to do.
John Broussard, a 4-star cornerback from Central High School (Phenix City, Ala.), has no more thinking to do though because he has decided to end his recruitment and enroll early at Auburn Univeristy.
Broussard told SEC Country a week ago that Muschamp and Travaris Robinson were his primary recruiters at Auburn. Robinson decided to follow Muschamp to South Carolina. His relationship with those two coaches was a big reason for his commitment to Auburn in the first place.
“We had a great relationship,” Broussard said. “They both were recruiting me ever since they came to Auburn. They were recruiting me at Florida, too. They recruited me very hard. I was up there a lot with them. I talked to them a lot all of the time, every day. They were a big part of the reason why I was going to Auburn.”
Several schools reached out to Broussard after both coaches left for their new jobs.
“Mississippi State and Oklahoma have contacted me so far. And South Carolina,” Broussard said last week. “Not Muschamp, but one of the assistants. They’ve contacted me on Twitter.”
With Broussard signing his early enrollment papers, he will enroll in classes in January and will be able to participate in spring practice.
