Purdue adds veteran starting left tackle from Colorado State for 2020
Need a new offensive lineman?
Sure, recruiting a prospect out of high school will always be the sure-fire way to add talent to a college football program. But more so now than ever before, teams are taking from one another.
Not in a bad sense, but because of the ease of the NCAA transfer portal, a player can leave and have a new destination set in seemingly a snap of the fingers. On Thursday, it became official that Purdue was adding TJ Storment from Colorado State:

Storment started every game at Colorado State in 2019 and will be a graduate transfer for the Boilermakers in the 2020 season.
Again, if Purdue needed help at offensive line, it just got it immediately. And, it didn’t add a raw talent. It added a season veteran.
Boilermaker fans can say thank you to Colorado State, Storment and the transfer portal.
