Cordell Broadus of Diamond Bar (Calif.) High School is probably better known for his lineage than his playmaking ability on the gridiron, but that's about to change.

Brian Kelly and Notre Dame seem to agree, as they offered the high school junior a full scholarship to play football for the Irish. A 6-foot-3, 186-pound junior wide receiver, Broadus has also been courted by the likes of LSU, Nebraska, UCLA and USC. But the Notre Dame announcement seemed to make waves the instant his high school coach Ryan Maine tweeted it on Thursday. From a young G's perspective, any of these options seem intriguing.

Some felt that the goal, his fourth of the game, was an exercise in showboating while others felt it was an exercise in awesome. Buffalo Sabres left winger Thomas Vanek just declared his two cents by scoring a gem of his own: between his own legs, and through the legs of Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky.
