Grambling coaches have returned to the recruiting trail, aiming to build on recent signing successes in new areas like Florida – where third-year Grambling coach Rod Broadway was once an assistant in Gainesville to Steve Spurrier.
“Hopefully, we will get some good guys out of there like we did last year,” Broadway told me this week, though he didn’t mention any specific prospect. “We had some guys come out of there and do a good job for us; they have a chance to be really good players.”
Sophomore defensive back David Stuckman of P.K. Longe-Gainesville had 12 tackles spelling over 10 games in 2008. Redshirt freshman CB Bruna Foster of Ormond Beach tied for third on the team with four picks. Linebacker Cliff Exama from North Miami Beach was No. 6 for GSU tackles with 45 in ’08, and defensive back Dominic Bell of Pinellas Park ended up as a key reserve who appeared in six games. Both Exama and Bell are redshirt sophomores to be, as well. Grambling’s roster also includes receiver Antoine Robinson out of Boyd Anderson-Fort Lauderdale, among others.
At least one Florida prospect was already considering Grambling – two-star defensive tackle Tyrone Dixon (6-1/295) of Eastside-Gainesville – before this week’s recruiting run.
