70 Days To Purdue Football: Jordan Roos

New, comments

Another key player that needs to improve for Purdue to have a successful 2014.

The fourth of Danny Hope's big offensive linemen from the 2012 recruiting class is today's featured player, and like the others, he figures to be in line for a starting position in 2014.

2014 Projection: Possible Starter on Offensive Line

Roos came into the spring as the No. 1 at one of the guard spots along with Jason King, and his rapport with Robert Kugler and the fact that he played a fair amount last season likely has him as the No. 1 guy heading into camp. JuCo transfer Corey Clements is projected as a guard, however, and could push King or Roos out of the No. 1 spot.

Regardless, Roos at least has the size to be an offensive guard in the Big Ten. He heads into the season listed at 320 pounds and much will rely on him if the putrid running game is to improve. In high school he was a Class 3A state champion in Texas at the shot put and the discus. A knee injury (of course) limited his senior season in football, however. In spring football for 2013 he was named as the most improved player on the offense.
