Texas landed a big get in Cy Ridge interior DL Vernon Broughton. The big 6-5, 285+ pounder is ranked as the #10 recruit in the state of Texas and was regarded as an even more important get than his lofty ranking.
Broughton has a lot of special traits and he’s a perfect fit for Todd Orlando’s preferred 4i prototype. Broughton gets off the ball well and collapses pockets like a Venezuelan stock market.
He is the 9th commitment in a small, but very select 2020 class. A class average of .9387 isn’t shabby - only Clemson and Alabama boast averages over .930.
