WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Harrison junior golfer Nic Hofman has decided where he'll play collegiately and it's not far from home.
Hofman has committed to Purdue. He announced the news via Twitter on Tuesday.
The Raiders' standout choosing the Boilermakers over Indiana, West Virginia and Cincinnati among others.
Hofman will join another Harrison graduate on the Boilers' roster: Cole Bradley.
Bradley's father, Rob, is Purdue's head coach.
That connection is one of the main reasons why Hofman chose to attend college in West Lafayette.
"I have a really good relationship with coach Bradley," said Hofman. "All the guys on the team are so awesome and nice. There's just some bond of brotherhood there. Obviously the facilities — you look around and they're pretty and beautiful and I know both of these golf courses like the back of my hand and I just thought it's kind of a no-brainer decision."
Hofman placed first at the Indiana Junior State Golf Tournament at Purdue's Kampen Course this past June. He finished in tied for eighth at the IHSAA State Finals as a sophomore.
