WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — When Jeff Brohm was introduced as Purdue's new football coach in 2016, he discussed recruiting within a 300-mile radius.
The strategy has produced results over the last couple of years. The Boilermakers have landed Louisville Trinity's Rondale Moore, David Bell of Warren Central in Indianapolis and West Lafayette's George Karlaftis.
But on Wednesday, Brohm and the Boilermakers picked up two prospects, including a quarterback, outside the target radius.
New Jersey four-star quarterback Michael Alaimo committed to Purdue.
The 6-foot-4 and 210-pound Alaimo chose the Boilers over offers from Michigan State, Boston College, California, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, West Virginia and several others.
Alaimo's commitment comes less than a week after Purdue added New York four-star running back Tirek Murphy.
Purdue also nabbed Tennessee three-star safety Antonio Stevens.
Stevens held many offers including Louisville, Cincinnati, Minnesota, Missouri and South Carolina.
With Alaimo and Stevens pledging, Purdue now have seven commitments for the 2020 class.
