New offer for 2015 RB Nick Brossette

By Sam Khan Jr.

While there were plenty of 2014 prospects in the house for Texas A&M's "Friday Night Lights" event, there were also several notable 2015 prospects in attendance.

One of them -- 2015 running back Nick Brossette -- made the trek from Baton Rouge, La. The trip was a fruitful one.

The 6-foot, 210-pound back from Baton Rouge (La.) University Laboratory School was one of three 2015 prospects to pick up an offer from the Aggies on Friday night, joining Katy (Texas) High School running back Rodney Anderson and Orange (Texas) West Orange-Stark safety Deionte Thompson.

Brossette already has several offers from premier programs, including Alabama, Florida State and LSU, and the Aggies jumped in the mix on Friday.

"I liked it and everything," Brossette said of the trip. "They're rebuilding [facilities] and everything so they're making it real nice for the football players. That's a good thing. They're moving in the right direction."

Brossette's sit-down with A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin was something that stood out to him.

"That's a blessing," he said. "He was just telling me how he's really impressed with my game and everything and how they can use me in their offense and stuff. That was really good."

He also spent time chatting it up with offensive coordinator and running backs coach Clarence McKinney and said he liked all the coaches he met. He also was impressed by Texas A&M's offense.

"I like how they were making plays all over the field and how their offense moves so fast," Brossette said. "I didn't know an offense could move fast like that. That really impressed me."

Brossette said he's planning to take a visit to Alabama before the end of the Crimson Tide's spring practice also. But A&M certainly left a positive impression on him.

"The coaches knew me right off the bat," Brossette said. "They're pretty cool. They're real good coaches and I like them and everything."
