Purdue Football Recruiting Update: Week 9

The biggest news of the week was a knee injury to David Yancey, who of course was a promising player that hurt his knee. He's a Purdue guy!

There were two new commitments so far with Kyle Shortridge and Danny Ezechukwu coming on board to officially make it 13 commitments. Two season could also end this weekend as Danny Etling and David Yancey begin their runs in the Indiana State Tournament.

Danny Etling - QB - Terre Haute South, IN - W 45-7 vs. Lawrence North - As expected, TH South broke a five game losing streak and finished the regular season at 3-6 by beating a truly awful Lawrence North team. Next South gets a rematch with cross-town rival Terre Haute North in the first round of sectionals. North won 27-10 on August 24.

First, there are highlights:

Lawrence North vs TH South 10-12-2012

Etling finished the night going 13 of 19 for 126 yards and two TDs.

Keyante Green - RB - Eagle's Landing Christian Academy, GA - W 62-0 vs. Mt. Vernon Presbyterian - I couldn't find any stats for this, but it safe to say that Green likely had a big day in the rout.

Randy Gregory -DE - Arizona Western C.C., AZ - Season complete due to injury

Dwayne Johnson - OL - Houston Bellaire, TX - Houston Bellaire was idle this week and does not play against until October 20 against Houston Chavez.

Austin Logan - DB - Tallahassee, FL - W 38-21 vs. North Florida Christian - This was another game with no stats, but there is at least a game story.

Jake Replogle - DE - Centerville, OH - L 26-10 vs. Wayne - Replogle was not mentioned in this week's game story as the Elks saw their winning streak snapped.

John Strauser - ATH - HS of St. Thomas More, IL - W 44-12 vs. Iroquois West/T-P - Just another generic game wrap here with no stats. Sorry.

Johnny Thompson - LB - Apalachee, GA - W 35-28 vs. Loganville - Unfortunately, another pay wall site.

David Yancey - ATH - Lake Central, IN - W 35-21 vs. Valparaiso - Thank goodness for the Northwest Indiana Times, which knows how to cover high school sports! Yancey had a big game with 171 yards and three touchdowns...

...then hurt his knee in the fourth quarter.

Lake Central finished the regular season at 7-2 and will begin the tournament against Portage, whom they have already beaten 40-17 on September 7.

Parker Cothren - DE - Hazel Green, AL - L 21-14 vs. Florence - There is no box score, but there is a game wrap here.

Myles Norwood - WR - Grace Prep, TX - W 20-22 at Pantego Christian - Norwood had a big game, rushing for 149 yards on just 10 carries and scoring two touchdowns.

Kyle Shortridge - DT - Seminole Ridge HS, Loxahatchee, FL - W 21-6 vs. John I. Leonard - Shortridge did not get a mention in the game wrap up, but he was part of a stout defense.

Danny Ezechukwu - TE/DE - Arabia Mountain High School, Lithonia, GA - L 30-15 vs. Mays - I couldn't find much more than a score here. There is video of the game in its entirety, I believe, right here.
