Darian Hagan had elite speed, elusiveness, and balance. He was flashy, brash, and special. As a coach, it seems like he found a player with a lot of traits in Jarek Broussard.
.@DarianLH3 on Broussard: “He is going to be a real dynamic player for us. He is special with the ball in his hand, can play all over the field, but will primarily be a running back for us.” https://t.co/F6TlLdj2Tx— Colorado Buffaloes (@cubuffs) December 20, 2017
Broussard is another huge talent coming from Texas this class, solidifying CU’s position in the state. He played at Bishop Lynch High School in Dallas, a major talent hot bed. As a junior, he had over 2,000 all purpose yards and 20 touchdowns. As a senior, he helped Bishop Lynch to the playoffs and averaged over 100 yards a game. It’s easy to see why he was used so much.
Like I said at the beginning, Broussard shares more with Hagan than just his number. Pop in the tape, and you see a lot of crazy plays. He has great top-end speed, can make people miss in a phone booth, and his balance lets him shrug off tacklers. Put him at RB, in the slot, or at returner, and you’re getting a home run threat every play.
