One of the top five players from the state of New York has committed to Purdue.

The Boilermakers received a verbal commitment from three-star strong-side defensive end Khordae Sydnor, the No. 4 player from the state of New York. He picked Purdue over offers from 19 other programs, including six at the FBS level.

Sydnor made his announcement with a post on Twitter. He becomes the seventh player in the 2021 recruiting class to verbally commit to Purdue.

Sydnor is a 6-foot-4, 230-pound defensive end who ranks as the No. 69 player at his position in this cycle, according to 247Sports. He received offers from Boston College, Army, Rice, Arizona State, Kent State and UMass, but ultimately decided to commit to Purdue.

With Sydnor’s commitment, Purdue now has its first defensive lineman of the 2021 class. The Boilermakers rank 10th in the B1G and 30th nationally currently with this year’s class.

Below are some highlights of Sydnor at the high school level.
