WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Fort Wayne Carroll safety/linebacker Drue Tranquill enjoyed the recruiting process over the last two months. On Tuesday, though, the three-star prospect announced he had ended his recruitment by picking Purdue.
GoldandBlack.com had listed Purdue as the team to beat for Tranquill down the stretch, and the Fort Wayne prospect noted that his desire to become a Boilermaker was based on returning the Purdue football program back to where it belonged.
"I'm most excited for the recruiting class this year and the legacy with the new coaching staff. It's similar to what I did with coach Dinan at Carroll and him coming in and starting fresh. With this coaching staff and us being second year guys coming in with the class of 2014, I believe we really could leave our own legacy and I'm excited for it," said Drue Tranquill.
Tranquill joins David Blough, the quarterback who stole the show at the Elite 11 camp, and Gelen Robinson, defensive end and son of former Purdue basketball star Glenn, as the center pieces of Hazell's first true class in West Lafayette.
