Head coach Jeff Brohm and the Purdue football team picked up a huge recruiting win.

Four-star recruit and dual-sport athlete Maliq Carr unveiled his college commitment Friday, and he declared he is committing to the Boilermakers. Though Carr’s four-star rating is due to his work on the football field, Jared Purcell with MLive is also reporting that Carr will enter Purdue’s basketball program as a preferred walk-on.

Purcell also shared comments from Carr discussing why he wound up committing to the Boilermakers. A member of Carr’s top 5, Michigan dropped out of the running for his talents when his final two was narrowed to Purdue and Georgia.
