Carrollton High School (GA) running back Broderick Snoddy is making a name for himself in both football and the sprint events in track. Broderick is looking for a college to not only play football and get a quality education but one that will allow him to compete in track. Broderick made the short trip to Atlanta Saturday for the Georgia Tech-Miami game.
Broderick has several teams looking at him and picked up an offer over the weekend. "I have a number of teams showing interest in me," said Snoddy. "Georgia Tech, Georgia, Georgia Southern, Jacksonville State, Middle Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Kentucky, and Delaware are just a few that is recruiting me now."
Snoddy made the trip to Atlanta to visit Georgia Tech for the Miami game. I was up there for the game and got to talk with the coaches." Snoddy talked with Coach Paul Johnson about becoming part of their offense. "He feels I am what he is looking for to help him in his option offense and said that he was officially offering me a scholarship." Broderick was happy to get the offer from Coach Johnson.
There are no plans yet for Snoddy to make a return to Tech for his official visit. "Right now I am waiting on my latest SAT score to come back and then I hope to set up an official visit to Tech for the second week in December." That visit will take place if Broderick and his teammates aren't still playing in the state playoffs or if he isn't playing in an all-star game. "If that weekend is clear for me then that is when I plan to take my official visit to Georgia Tech."
While he was at the game Snoddy had a chance to talk to some of the players including a former Carrollton player. "I talked with Jerrard Tarrant, the former Carrollton defensive back, Joshua Nesbitt, and just about all the running backs on the team." They all told Snoddy how much they like playing for Coach Johnson." They told me how the offense is great for a running back."
Snoddy saw some things that he liked about Tech. "I really like their academics and I feel I would be a perfect fit for their offense." Being able to play both football and run track will be a factor in Broderick's decision. "It is very important to me that the college I go to allows me to do both."
Right now Snoddy plans to wait until signing day to announce his decision. "I will hold a signing day function at my high school and announce where I will go to college."
