Purdue’s secondary has taken a hit to its depth for the 2019 season.

GoldandBlack.com reported on Thursday that sophomore defensive back Jacob Abrams has entered his name in the transfer portal and will explore other opportunities outside of West Lafayette. He was a member of Purdue’s 2017 recruiting class.

Abrams would have the opportunity to return to Purdue if that was in his best interest. He may reach out to other programs and be contacted by other coaches without penalty by entering his name in the NCAA transfer databse.

Abrams played sparingly in his first two years in West Lafayette. He did not see any game action in 2017 but appeared in eight contests last year for the Boilermakers. He made one tackle in Purdue’s loss to Wisconsin in mid-November.

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound native of Carmel, Indiana is a former two-star prospect and he had three offers out of high school. In addition to Purdue, he received offers from Ball State and Illinois State.
