Drue Tranquill, "Best visit yet! Vibe was unreal..."
Drue Tranquill, "Best Day in awhile with great people!"
Shaq Vann, "Unreal atmosphere today at Purdue."
Denzel Ward, "Great game today, I definitely see myself on that field next year making a huge impact."
Looks like the visiting recruits had a good time and appreciated the game day atmosphere. Even though I predicted an upset (just b/c the sentiment was too overwhelmingly negative I thought we had a chance), I was worried that if I was wrong it might ended up like two years ago when we just rolled over and died pretty much after the first play against Notre Dame when Gary Harris visited, which would be a double whammy if it made a bad impression on the recruits.
Also, remember than Tranquill is the guy who made a verbal to Purdue but then got a Notre Dame offer, and he said he was "committed" to Purdue but "owe it to himself to give a closer look to the Irish." Hope after the "best visit / day" it removed any doubt or hesitation for him to fully commit. As for Vann, he was teammates with Tranquill at the N.D. camp after playing in the 5A Sectional Finals against Tranquill. Denzel Ward is the star tackle who also has offers from Florida, O$U, Oklahoma, UCLA and other big time schools.
With Vince Edwards' verbal, it felt like the momentum has finally swung in our favor. I'm excited. Boiler Up!
