John Broussard Jr. recently transferred to Memphis after spending several years at Auburn. The graduate transfer played last year for the Tigers finishing with 6 tackles including three solo.
Broussard Jr. was shot this weekend according to multiple reports. John Broussard, a 22-year-old defensive back for the Tigers, was shot in the lower leg while an unnamed 20-year-old was shot in the lower back.
This happened on Sunday Night near the Memphis campus at an apartment complex.
Broussard Jr. is considered a 2021 NFL Draft Prospect, and the crazy part is Memphis wide out and star Damonte Coxie was at the event and witnessed the shooting.
Broussard Jr. is a 6000 cornerback who was a standout in Alabama high school. As a senior in 2015, logged 36 tackles, eight PBU and one interception, and he earned the opportunity to play in the Under Armour All-American game in Orlando, Florida.
Please pray that Broussard Jr. and the other man recover from the shooting, but this is why we need football back.
