Warwick High School (Newport News, VA) looks to have another talented and athletic quarterback in their system. 6-2, 200 pound Cody Brodus , who started at quarterback for the first time in his high school career last season, shows a good arm and has good speed as a dual-threat signal caller.
A tough player, Brodus is also a safety on defense.
“Last year was my second year playing varsity football,” Brodus said. “I started at wide receiver as a sophomore. One day in practice before my junior year, Coach [Tommy] Reamon looked at me and asked to see me throw. He saw me throw and decided to try me at quarterback. I had played quarterback before in the recreation league, but last season was the first time I started at quarterback in high school.”
Brodus looks to capitalize on his junior year experience next season as a senior. He feels he played well last season but admits he has some things to improve over the summer.

I’m down to around a 4.5. I want to get down close to a 4.4.

Recruiting-wise, Brodus states he has picked up four official offers. Those include Virginia, Virginia Tech, Missouri, and Syracuse. He claims all four schools are recruiting him as a quarterback, though he admits he could play safety on the next level.
“I have offers from UVa, Virginia Tech, Missouri, and Syracuse,” Brodus said. “I think I could play quarterback and safety on the next level. None of the schools recruiting me have mentioned safety though. All of them are talking to me about quarterback. Other schools recruiting me are Maryland and Clemson.”
Brodus named Virginia and Virginia Tech as two schools at the top of his list. He plans on camping at both places this summer.
“UVa and Virginia Tech,” Brodus said when asked if he had any favorite schools. He admitted he remains open to other...
