33 Days To Purdue Football: Reggie Pegram

New, 9 comments

If Reggie Pegram follows the path of Ralph Bolden, he could be in for a big year this season. In 2008 Bolden played, but barely amassed 28 yards on 16 carries. He then exploded in 2009. I don't expect the same from Pegram this year since he is behind Bolden and Akeem Shavers, but I would certainly take it.

Reggie Pegram -So.

Hometown: Terrell, TX (James Madison HS)

Running back

5'10", 215 pounds

2011 Projection: contributor at running back

Only incoming freshman Brandon Cottom is a bigger running back than Pegram currently on the roster. I could see Pegram becoming more of a fullback in the future, especially with Jared Crank graduating this season. Pegram does enter this year with experience too. He played in all 12 games last season, mostly on special teams. He rushed six times for seven yards.

In high school he had fantastic stats for James Madison High in Texas. He ran for 1,394 yards and 15 touchdowns as his team made the Texas State playoffs. He also ran track and played basketball. As a junior he also rushed for over 1,000. the potential is there for him to be a solid back.
