    An All-Big Sky First-Teamer, Cameron Broussard is ready for the next level, but where are some landing spots for the Sacramento State safety?

    Though the transfer portal closes soon, there are still talented players throwing their names in. One of the most intriguing recent portal additions is Sacramento State safety Cameron Broussard, an All-Big Sky selection who should garner plenty of attention from teams that need a talented and experienced defensive back.

    Where are some transfer portal landing spots for Broussard?

    Landing Spots for Cameron Broussard

    Broussard wasn’t an unknown commodity on the recruiting trail, ranking as a three-star prospect. Yet, in a move that goes against the norm, Broussard signed with Sacramento State in the Early Signing Period, shutting his recruitment even though he had an FBS offer and could have been a late FBS signee.

    He tallied 169 tackles in three seasons with the Hornets and earned All-Big Sky Honors in 2023. Now, he’s on the market and likely to move up a level for his final season of eligibility. Here are some perfect transfer portal landing spots for Broussard.

    Stanford Cardinal

    Broussard was phenomenal against the Cardinal last season, tallying 11 tackles and an interception. Stanford is the local team at the highest level of the sport and needs to add more talent wherever they can get it.

    There’s plenty of room on the depth chart and a likely chance for Broussard to start. Furthermore, Stanford head coach Troy Taylor was Broussard’s first coach at Sacramento State…and his first coach at Folsom High School. Location, opportunity, and familiarity make Stanford the front-runner to land the FCS star.

    Arizona Wildcats

    When Broussard was being recruited out of high school, he was an athlete who played both ways. His wide receiver highlights caught the eyes of the San Jose State coaching staff, who loved his athleticism. Former San Jose State head coach Brett Brennan is now the head man at Arizona, where Broussard would star across from Gunner Maldonado at safety.

    San Jose State Spartans

    Although most of the coaching staff has changed from when Broussard was recruited by the Spartans, defensive coordinator Derrick Odum was retained through the coaching change. It’s possible the FCS standout would be interested in joining the team that he spurned four years ago.

    Utah Utes

    In terms of preparing himself for the future, Utah is likely an attractive option to Broussard. The Utes just put Cole Bishop in the NFL and have little returning experience in their safeties room.

    Broussard is a tackling machine but could use a bit more polish in coverage, something Utah defensive coordinator Morgan Scalley would certainly develop.

    California Bears

    Like Utah, Cal just saw its starting safety get drafted. Patrick McMorris was a one-year transfer and led the Bears in tackles with 88, leaving a significant hole to fill. Broussard fills an immediate need on a team that has proven it can be a stepping stone to the next level.
