Offensive line was a point of focus for Purdue as they landed four players in the trenches this recruiting cycle. He is one of two players from Wisconsin hauled in by Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm.
Purdue has the No. 83 class in the nation according to 247Sports which, not surprisingly, is dead-last in the Big Ten this recruiting cycle. Wednesday was the first day of the Early Signing Period.
