PURDUE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Purdue Football Recruiting Scholarship Grid Update

Here is a quick update on how the football scholarship situation looks. Jimmy McKenna made it 14 commitments yesterday, which is quite a run for Jeff Brohm. Like I pointed out last week, having this many commitments this early is unprecedented for Purdue.

Carsen’s summer is officially booked. In July, he will be in Egypt...

I would go ahead and categorize this verbal as a soft one. Literally, in his tweet, it says that he isn’t just shutting his recruitment down yet. Which obviously worries me. Rivals has Connor ranked as a 2* prospect currently...
