Purdue football is receiving a gift of a safety from the transfer portal.

Former Arkansas DB Anthony Brown Jr. has committed to the Boilermakers. In an announcement via Twitter, Brown posted a picture of himself in Purdue gear, along with the caption “Boiler Up That’s It That’s All!” and the word “committed” across the photo.

Brown was a three star recruit out of high school per the 247Sports Composite, and committed to the Razorbacks in 2021.

He chose Arkansas over multiple offers from other schools including Tennessee, Mississippi State, Illinois, and Wisconsin. The Boilermakers were also in contention for Brown’s services in 2021, before the S headed south.

In high school, Brown was quite the utility player taking snaps at RB, WR, S, and on special teams. The Milan, Tennessee native led the school to a Tennessee state runner-up finish in his junior year, while amassing more than 1,500 yards of offense, and 25 total touchdowns.
