ESPN's recruiting breakdown

I saw this was marked as an Insider article so I thought I'd share their look at the future boilers

Purdue

Commitments: 14

ESPN 300 commitments: 2
Who they have: New coach Darrell Hazell was able to keep its future backfield in order. In-state quarterback Danny Etling (Terre Haute, Ind./South Vigo), a member of the ESPN 300, stuck it out through the coaching change. Etling committed early and more teams entered the fold late and in the summer, when Etling performed extremely well at Elite 11 camps. Running back Keyante Green (McDonough, Ga./Eagle's Landing Christian), also an ESPN 300 recruit, arode out the coaching change with Purdue and is firmly committed. Hazell also made an immediate and major impact right away with uncommitted recruits, too, snagging four-star Leroy Clark from Miami Archbishop Carroll. And this past weekend, he got a pledge from three-star Antoine Miles. A lot of the kudos should go to recruiting assistant Kevin Maurice, the lone holdover who helped keep the class in order.
Who they want: Hazell held his first big round of official visits this past weekend, hosting more than a half-dozen recruits. Fellow three-star Nate Wozniak (Greenwood, Ind./Center Grove) is a Miami lean, but Purdue has an inherent advantage of being the in-state program getting a fresh start. Landing Wozniak would help deal with the loss of decommit Dwayne Johnson. Tight end Matt Burke (West Palm Beach, Fla./Cardinal Newman) was offered Jan. 12 and immediately set up a visit. Burke is a U.S. Army All-American. The Boilermakers are also hoping to flip Boston College commit Dan Monteroso of St. Clairsville (Ohio). There is still hope, albeit very slim, that the Boilermakers could land four-star New Smyrna Beach (Fla.) receiver James Clark, who officially visited in October.
