Purdue picks up pledge from in-state OT
Purdue has finally hit a double-digit total on the recruiting front.
On Tuesday, the Boilermakers received a verbal pledge from 3-star, in-state offensive tackle Mahamane Moussa. The Indianapolis native becomes the 10th player in the 2021 recruiting cycle to commit to Purdue. He made his announcement with a post on Twitter.

Moussa is listed as a 6-foot-5, 260-pound offensive tackle, according to 247Sports. He ranks as the No. 19 player from the state of Indiana and held offers from 19 total programs.
In addition to Purdue, Moussa received interest from Kansas, Memphis, Boston College, Wake Forest, Louisville, Army, San Diego State and Air Force.
Along with playing football, Moussa is also a member of the Pike High School track and field squad. He is a shot put and discus thrower during the spring.
Purdue has been a little slow on the recruiting front in the 2021 cycle. The Boilers are up to 10 commits, but rank last in the B1G currently.
