Purdue’s secondary is taking a hit this offseason, as prominent contributor Kenneth Major will be entering his name in the NCAA transfer portal.
Recently, NBC Sports reported that Major has entered his name in the NCAA transfer portal and will look for a new home to continue his football career. According to the report, a Purdue football official recently confirmed Major is exploring his options outside of West Lafayette.
Major was an under-recruited prospect out of high school, receiving just a two-star rating from 247Sports as a member of the 2017 recruiting class. However, he became a frequent contributor for the Boilermakers over the last two seasons, playing in 24 games with 16 starts.
Over the last two years, Major has collected 79 tackles, totaled three interceptions, three pass break-ups and forced a fumble.
Major will have two years of eligibility remaining, after using his 2017 season as a redshirt year. Per NCAA transfer rules, he will have to sit out the 2020 season unless he is a graduate transfer or is granted an immediate eligibility waiver by the NCAA.
Purdue ended the 2019 season with a 4-8 record.
