Recruiting Update: Nothin' Doin'

Purdue got a verbal from DE Trevor Foy nearly two weeks ago. He had offers from Louisville and Northwestern, so he's no slouch, he has very good size and OK speed...but he's just number 5 in the incoming class.

Ouch.

This transitional recruiting class is not filling quickly. Last week, a slew of recruits came to Ross Ade and Purdue received zero verbal commitments in the game's wake. According to Rivals, our Boilers now have a handful of 2-star players. And while it's still only September, it is September. It might be time for Hope and Co. to start offering some more players outside of the Southeast.

I'm not faulting Hope as this is a difficult situation, but his philosophy might not be working in the current unusual set of conditions.
