Desert Edge offensive lineman Gavin Broscious has been making the most of his time at home.
The 2022 lineman said he now stands at 6-foot-5 and 305 pounds, two inches taller and about 30 pounds bigger from the end of the football season. A few factors fueling that transformation? Some weight equipment at his house and a more consistent sleep schedule since school went remote.

On the recruiting end, Broscious has added offers recently. He has held an ASU offer for roughly a year and said he is staying in constant contact with the Devils. He has also added offers from Michigan State and New Mexico this spring.
Broscious has tracked the Spartans over recent years and considers an offer from a program known for offensive linemen as an honor.
“You need to be pretty big and strong and mean to play on that offensive line,” Broscious said. “They’re serious players out there.”

Broscious got to know some of the New Mexico staff when they were with ASU, notably Lobos running backs coach Jordan Somerville.
“He’s a very knowledgeable guy,” Broscious said. “I’ve talked to him some times and he knows so much about Arizona football and the Arizona kids. He really tries to keep the contact with us…He’s a very good recruiter. He definitely knows what he’s talking about and I can tell that.”

Once cleared to travel and visit campuses, Broscious hopes to check out the Spartans, New Mexico, USC, UCLA, Oregon and “a few Texas schools.”
The two-year starter has also spent time this offseason getting to know the Carter twins, Desert Edge’s new head coaches.
“They really put family where our school is. They made us a big family. We were already a tight-knit group of kids, but it’s a whole new level now.”
He also knows where he wants to focus his mental energy when he returns to the field.
“I need to be a lot more intense this year and be the leader of the offensive line. We have the new guys, the freshman coming up. I need to show them what it’s like to be a mean old offensive lineman and to get the job done but still be a leader to them.”
