Brian Brodell | Assistant Coach | Men’s Golf | Purdue University

Describe the qualities that your program is looking for in a potential student-athlete?

The schools I have coached at look for:

  • Outstanding academics, top 100 ranked players
  • Players who show they can win and shoot low
  • Players who respect their parents and coaches
  • Players who show up early and leave late and appreciate what they have and not ask for more
  • Look sharp on and off the course
  • Good demeanor
  • Positive attitude every day
  • Great short game
  • Huge heart and a lot of fight
  • Confident around the successful and confident to be successful


I can say that the players who do this have a great chance of becoming all Americans and having a significant college career on and off the course.
