11 Days To Purdue Football: DeVarro Greaves

As I mentioned yesterday, there seem to be a few players in Joe Tiller's final recruiting class that, for whatever reason, are being looked over for younger guys brought in by coach Hope. Another one of those players is junior linebacker DeVarro Greaves, who has had an up and down career at Purdue thus far.

DeVarro Greaves - Sr.

Hometown: Folkston, GA (Charlton County HS)


6'2", 220 pounds

2011 Projection: Reserve at linebacker, special teams contributor.

Greaves has played a lot, we just don't realize it. he has seen action in 30 of 36 possible games since redshirting during the 2007 season. He only has 11 tackles, however, playing most of his time on special teams. He is on the two deeps as an outside linebacker this year, so look for #11 to make more of an appearance.

Greaves came to us from the same high school as Ralph Bolden and David Pender. While in high school, he played in four straight state championship games and won two state championships in track. Like Bolden and Pender, he was a multiple-time All-Region selection. Another name on that list should be familiar to Purdue fans: D.J. Donley.

Like Tommie Thomas yesterday, Greaves is a good kid off the field as well. He volunteers his time at the Lafayette Urban Ministry's Emergency shelter with teammates Gerald Gooden and Bruce Gaston.
