It’s not very often that you hear about a quarterback making a transition to the tight end position. But in West Lafayette, that’s what Paul Piferi is attempting to do as a way to best help Purdue on the field in 2020.

Last week, Tom Dienhart of Gold and Black Illustrated reported that Piferi — who would likely be Purdue’s fourth-string quarterback this season — is instead transitioning to tight end. With Jack Plummer, Aidan O’Connell and Austin Burton all competing for the starting QB job, making a position switch was probably the best move for Piferi to see the field.

And while his 6-foot-5, 230-pound frame certainly would allow him to make the switch, Purdue still wants the former QB to put on some weight and muscle before he starts hitting the field. In a Big Ten Network clip, the redshirt freshman described what his new eating habits were like.

Spoiler alert: he’s eating a lot more food, and a lot more often, these days:

Sounds like just about every college student’s dream, right?

Last season was Piferi’s first in West Lafayette, and even though Purdue went through quite a few quarterbacks last season, he wasn’t able to get on the field. We’ll see how quickly he’s able to carve out a role with the Boilermakers at the tight end spot.

Purdue opens the season on Saturday, Oct. 24 against Iowa.
