The Path to Norman
Justin Broiles was a very highly ranked DB out of Oklahoma in the 2018 class. Broiles’ interactions with the staff got kicked up about a year before his signing with an offer.

He proved to be a huge recruiting force after his commitment. His physicality was an attribute often talked about in high school.
Career so Far
2017 was a redshirt season for the OK Preps defensive back, coupled with some minor injury time.
His 2018 campaign saw Broiles start in five games and play in eleven before an injury ended his season early. He played a bit of safety, nickel, and corner.
Position: Defensive Back
Year: Redshirt Sophomore

This could be a critical year for Broiles. With plenty of options at safety, it’s a year for him to assert himself on the field and prove himself a starter. James Hales’ depth chart from last week has Broiles starting at strong safety, but he and TFB have repeatedly reported how tight the race is at both safety spots. Sooner fans will be rooting for him to have a breakout season in 2019.
