The Cincinnati, Ohio, native is a 3-star prospect in the 247Sports Composite. He ranks as the 37th player in the state of Ohio for the cycle, the 67th-best player at his position, and No. 1,130 in his class. Purdue’s class of commits ranks among the top 40 in the nation, and Klare’s addition gives it 2 tight ends now. He’ll join fellow 3-star prospect Charlie Kenrich.
Klare is 6-foot-4, 225 pounds. He also played baseball for St. Xavier HS, and his MaxPreps page credits him with 39 catches for 637 yards and 5 scores.
He’s the 20th known commitment for Purdue this cycle. You can view his highlight tape below, via Hudl:
