32 Days To Purdue Football: Jordan Shine

Yesterday, Purdue finally updated the current roster for the football team, allowing us to accurately cover the new freshmen class. This year's class has a lot of talent and upside to it with players like Danny Anthrop, Carlos Carvajal, and Austin Appleby. Today's featured player is someone who jumped on the Purdue wagon the instant he got his offer (seriously, it was like an hour).

Jordan Shine - Fr.

Hometown: Indianapolis, IN (Warren Central HS)

Defensive Back

6' 188 pounds

2012 Projection: Possible Redshirt

Shine loved everything about Purdue when he came here to visit, which made his decision pretty easy. One of the big things that Shine enjoyed about Purdue was how honest the coaches were with him. When a player comes into a situation where he already enjoys and respects the coaches before they actually start coaching him, you gotta believe he's going to be something special.

A three-star prospect out of high school, Shine finished his senior season with 90 total tackles, 6 picks, broke up 7 passes, blocked 3 punts, recovered 3 fumbles and force 2. The kid seriously does it all. He is everything you would want as a safety, and hopefully his game will transition well in the next level.

Purdue currently has 12 defensive backs on the team, with two of those being incoming freshmen Shine and Anthony Brown. Shine is currently listed as a defensive back, but I think that he will stick to his roll as a safety. Because we have so many DBs, I think Shine is a safe bet for a red-shirt. He's got good size, but it never hurts to get a little stronger as long as he can maintain his speed. By the end of his career, Shine could be a star.

Till then, enjoy this highlight real and try to think of better plays on Jordan Shine's name. You will have much more success than my poor attempt. Shine is also active on Twitter. Follow him at @jshine_15
