Saturday was a big recruiting day for the Boilermakers. Several 2016 recruits were in attendance on unofficial visits. I’ll break them up in groups of four for easier digestion.
Sean Bailey: Sean Bailey is a massive 6’6, 340 pound offensive tackle from Suwanne, Georgia in the class of 2016. Bailey doesn’t have any offers right now, but has been making the unofficial visit tour of the country. He has visited Georgia Tech, South Carolina, Virginia, Auburn, and now Purdue. He will visit Penn State next Saturday. Bailey will be tough to pull out of the Southeast, but he has legitimate interest in the Boilermakers. He would be a huge get for the class of 2016.
From Bailey’s Twitter:
Huge thanks to @PURDUEpersonnel for having me for the game. #BoilerUp #Purdue
Tyrece Speaight: Spaeight is an elite 4*, 5’10, 175 pound athlete from Akron Ohio in the class of 2016. Speaight has the athletic ability to play either WR or DB at the next level. Spaeight has visited Michigan, Ohio State, and Purdue and will visit Akron and Michigan St. in the upcoming weeks. Ohio State is considered the favorite for his services, but it’s good to see some of the top talent in the Midwest stopping by and checking out the Boilermakers.
Kendall Coleman: Coleman is a defensive end for Indianapolis, Cathedral, and at 6'3", 235, he projects to be one of the better players from the state of Indiana in the 2016 class. Colman has visited Indiana and Purdue, and right now, it’s a two team race for the services of Coleman. Purdue needs to continue to wrap up the top talent in the state, and Coleman fits in that category.
Mark Gooden: Gooden is a 6’1, 210 pound OLB/DE from Reynoldsburg, Ohio. He is doing the unofficial visit tour right now. He has visited Penn State, Ohio State, Cincinnati, and Purdue and will visit Northwestern, West Virginia, Kentucky, and Vanderbilt. Gooden is considered a Boston College lean at the moment, but Purdue will be a player in his recruitment.
