2014 Purdue Football Recruiting: Corey Clements Commits

Sandra Dukes-USA TODAY Sports

Purdue picks up a huge offensive tackle.

Another position of major need was taken care of today as Corey Clements, a massive 6'8" 330 pound tackle from Mesa Community College in Arizona committed to the Boilermakers to provide immediate help on the offensive line. As a JuCo player he enters with only two years of eligibility, but he can possibly start immediately on a line that struggled to do even the most basic of offensive line things in 2013.

Clements is a three-star commit by Rivals, ESPN, and Scout, fitting the mold that Purdue has an entire class of three-star guys according to ESPN. He was originally committed to UAB, but drew interest as a JuCo from Arizona, Baylor, South Florida and North Texas. There are some concerns about his footwork and he may need to actually slim down a little, but you cannot teach size. If he is even serviceable he is a major improvement for the Boilers at tackle.

And finally, how the scholarship situation now looks. By my math, Purdue is two over the scholarship limit, but GBI continues to say there is room for 1-2 more players (Poona Ford?), so they must know about a few departures we're unaware of:
