Purdue football adds early-enrollee transfer from SEC West program to 2023 roster
Purdue football added a pledge from former Ole Miss early enrollee Braxton Myers Tuesday afternoon. The incoming freshman DB committed to play for Lane Kiffin and the Rebels in September of 2022 and signed his letter of intent in December.
Myers spent all of last season with the team, but entered the transfer portal regardless following spring practice. This news comes just an hour after the Boilermakers added Marshall transfer wide receiver Corey Gammage, jumping Purdue’s total incoming transfer number to 13.
Quite the offseason thus far for Ryan Walters!
Committed!! 🚂🚂 #BoilerUp pic.twitter.com/vLX1Ddcazb
