Marcos Davila will be headed north to play in the Big Ten. The blue-chip quarterback from Texas has announced his commitment to play for Purdue.

Davila, a former TCU commit out of Midland Legacy, announced the big news on his Twitter account.

Davila, listed at 6-3, 217 pounds, is rated 4-stars on the 247Sports Composite with scholarship offers from 24 schools, including Miami, Mississippi State and Texas A&M. He decommitted from TCU on Feb. 22 following offensive coordinator Garrett Riley’s departure for Clemson.

An important commitment for Ryan Walters

Ryan Walters’ has a defensive background as a coach, but he clearly knows the importance of having a big-time quarterback on board early in a recruiting class. As team leaders, quarterbacks tend to be important recruiters. Having Davila on board in March should help the Boilermakers with recruiting, especially on offense.

Davila is coming off of a junior season in which he was 186-of-314 passing (59.2% complete) for 3,051 yards, 36 touchdowns and 12 interceptions, earning first-team All-District recognition. Highlights from that season can be viewed below, via Hudl:
