Middletown’s Tajae Broadie picks up his ninth college offer

Middletown’s Tajae Broadie is creeping up on a recruiting milestone.

The junior said Tuesday he added an offer from UMass.

That’s put him one away from having 10 offers.

Broadie’s list also includes Akron, Central Michigan, UConn, Cincinnati, Old Dominion, Bowling Green, Buffalo and Syracuse.

The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder was a first-team PennLive All-Star at defensive end last season after recording 53 tackles — 21 for loss — and six sacks. He’s a versatile player, however, and can also play tight end or fullback. He caught 32 passes for 438 yards and seven touchdowns and ran for 104 yards on eight carries.

Tajae Broadie

School: Middletown

Position: DE

HT/WT: 6-4, 220

Class: Junior

Buzz: Broadie is an absolute weapon who is the biggest college prospect Middletown has produced across its amazing run during the past half-decade. He can play fullback and tight end, and finished last season with 32 catches for 438 yards and seven touchdowns and ran for 104 more yards on eight totes. Expect the Blue Raiders to find all kinds of ways to get him touches this year. That said, he was a first-team PennLive area all-star last season at defensive end where his ability to explode off the edge allowed him to collect 53 tackles — 21 for loss — and six sacks as a sophomore.

Wednesday Transportation Survey

Blue Raiders, we are really working hard to develop a plan to support any students that do not have a means to make it to practice on Wednesday's due to transportation issues. If we cannot find viable solutions, we are looking to possibly offer district transportation. To identify these needs, we are asking you to please complete this survey. Please complete this survey ONLY if your student-athlete needs transportation. Our survey will close this Tuesday.

The Blue Raiders instill the following leadership qualities P,R,I,D,E. When nominating a fellow Blue Raider, please list one of these qualities in your description.

P-erseverance, R-espect, I-ntegrity, D-iscipline, E-xcellence

EXAMPLES:

Xavier Engleton, Indoor Track, Grade 12 - Honor
“Xavier is a great mentor in the hurdles. He is always looking for places to give tips to the rest of us, using the knowledge he has gained from his own training. I wouldn't be where I am now without him.” ~ Jeff Bowerman

Johnny McGrain, Soccer, 10th - Courage
“Johnny is always encouraging everyone on the team to get better. Even when there are players that don't play as much he tries to encourage them to work hard and not give up on playing time as one of our captains.”
~ Owen Campbell

Erin Hill, Varsity Field Hockey, 12th – Perseverance
“Erin has worked hard each day to improve and it definitely shows every time she makes a huge defensive stop on the field. She embraces her role whether it's on the sideline cheering on her teammates or make great plays on the field. Erin has a lot of contagious spirit and it’s fun to see it spread to her teammates.” ~ Coach Slavin
