UCLA is another school that gives Broadus a chance to play close to home. Its campus is in gorgeous Westwood, which is right by Beverly Hills and various beaches.
Head coach Jim Mora is beloved by his players, as he knows how to motivate them and keep them loose to have fun during a game. UCLA has solid facilities and academics, but it also has an ace in the hole to help entice Broadus: 5-star quarterback commit Josh Rosen.
Rosen and Broadus have a close relationship, according to Adam Gorney of Rivals.com. The chance to play with his friend, who happens to be one of the best passers in the country, will likely keep the Bruins in it until the end with Broadus.
Gorney wrote on March 31:
UCLA has always been under serious consideration in his recruitment especially since the Bruins offered so early. With Rosen's recent commitment, UCLA might have moved up even more.
UCLA has gotten the best of USC the past two seasons on the field, but the Bruins are still perceived to be the "little brother" between the two Los Angeles programs. Also, Mora could leave for an NFL head coaching job before Broadus graduates.
