4-star safety from Michigan commits to Purdue
Who said Jeff Brohm wasn’t going to shake up Purdue’s recruiting?
The second-year Boilermaker coach got another big addition on Friday. Even better, he did so outside of Indiana but within the B1G footprint.
Purdue got a commitment from 4-star Michigan safety Marvin Grant, who announced his commitment to the Boilermakers on Friday:

The Detroit native is the No. 19 safety and the No. 264 player overall in the 2019 class. He turned down the likes of Michigan, Michigan State and Notre Dame in favor of the Boilermakers.
The 6-2, 200-pound safety liked the idea of being part of a program on the rise.
“The year before last they won three games and they got a whole new coaching staff,” Grant said via the Journal and Courier. “I figured I can hop on board. They’ve got some other players who have committed – a couple of stars – and there’s a lot of people starting to look at Purdue.
“I feel like we can change the culture, change the game and make something happen.”
That marked the second 4-star recruit landed in its 2019 class and the first from the state of Michigan. Purdue now has the No. 12 class in the B1G and the No. 45 class overall in the 247sports rankings.
