Purdue makes splash on Signing Day, ink 22 recruits for 2018 class

On arguably one of the biggest days for NCAA football, Purdue made a huge splash on National Signing Day inking 22 new recruits for its 2018 class. The reason that National Signing Day was a huge splash for Purdue is that these high school players are Jeff Brohm’s first recruiting class since joining Purdue. Brohm now has the opportunity to have his recruits playing for him rather than Darrell Hazel’s who still turned out really well this past season. It’s officially the new era for Purdue football because there will be new players on the roster along with a second-year coaching staff for an overall great rebrand.

Moving along to the 22-recruit class, Jeff Brohm announced the addition of all the new Boilermakers on Wednesday afternoon. You can watch the full press conference here which was live streamed on the Purdue Football Facebook page.

The class consists of 12 defensive players and 10 players on the offensive side from nine different states.
