It’s always recruiting season.

Recruiting never stops. Coaches always have to keep recruiting, otherwise, the program will fall behind.

It takes just one player to make or break a program and if a coach isn’t on top of his game one day, that could be the difference. For Purdue, Wednesday night could have been a difference-making night.

King Doerue, a 3-star RB from Amarillo, Texas, announced his commitment to the Boilermakers:

Doerue is a 5-foot-11, 197-pound prospect who had 19 scholarship offers. Offers from Notre Dame, Minnesota, Nebraska and Texas A&M were just a few.

With Doerue’s commitment, Purdue’s 2019 class ranks as the No. 26 class nationally and No. 4 class in the B1G. Doerue is the Boilermakers’ second tailback to verbally commit and is the higher rated of the two.
