Chris Broberg’s Army football interest was so high that he’s made three trips to West Point over the last eight months.
Broberg attended Junior Day in April, participated in Army’s camp over the summer and visited the academy in late October.
The LaSalle Institute (N.Y.) offensive lineman was ready to make his college decision about a week after his last visit, committing to recruiting coach John Loose on Nov. 8. Broberg announced he’s joined the Black Knights’ 2004 recruiting class Friday.
“That (last visit) solidified my decision,” said the 6-foot-7, 310-pound Broberg. “I liked the culture and the opportunity I was given.”
Army was always at the top of Broberg’s college list. Broberg connected to the Army through his high school. Broberg’s grandfather served in the Air Force and his other grandfather was in the Air Force reserves.
“It is a great honor to be a Black Knight,” Broberg said. “I know it is a great responsibility but I believe I can live up to it if I work hard enough.”
Broberg is the third New York commit in Army’s 2024 class.
