Nick Broeker is a 2019 three-star offensive lineman from Sacred Heart-Griffin high school in Springfield, Illinois and could potentially be the next prospect to become a Kansas Jayhawk.
Broeker has been picking up a ton of offers lately, including ones from Kansas, Missouri, Michigan State, Purdue, Indiana and Cincinnati. Broeker visited the Jayhawks on Monday, Apr. 2, although he has also visited some other schools.
The thing that separates Kansas from the rest is Broeker’s family ties. His mother, Missy Broeker, graduated from Kansas, which could be a major factor when Broeker makes his decision.
There is no set date as to when Broeker will make his decision as he still has another year of high school left, but if he were to join the Jayhawks, he could make an enormous impact.
Broeker will likely improve in his senior season and could potentially push to become a four-star recruit. Broeker would also be joining Kansas at the perfect time, as most of its offensive line will be seniors in the 2019 season.
Broeker could push to become a starter his freshman season and would likely be the full-time starter his sophomore season. Broeker would also be only the second player to commit to Kansas for 2019 which could sway other recruits into joining the Jayhawks.
Broeker also played high school basketball which has only helped his cardio and footwork. With improvements in his senior season, Broeker could become one of the top guards for 2019 and could potentially become one of the Jayhawks’ biggest signings if he were to join them.
