The incoming true freshmen finally have numbers! Purdue has updated the roster to reflect the incoming freshmen, so going forward we can get to know some of the incoming freshmen. Today's player is one of those freshmen.

Peyton Truitt - Fr.

West Lafayette, IN (West Lafayette HS)

6'5", 298 pounds

Offensive Line

2015 Projection: Likely redshirt

Truitt is a freshman very likely headed for a redshirt given what Purdue returns up front. He was one of the top players in all of Indiana from nearby West Lafayette HS. During his time there he played on one of the top Class 3A teams in Indiana. As a junior in 2013 West Lafayette started 8-0 before losing their final regular season game in overtime to Lafayette Central Catholic. The team went on to win a section and regional before falling in the semi-state to Andrean. As a freshman West Lafayette also went 12-2 and lost in the semi-state.

Truitt has the size to become a solid lineman under coach Jim Bridge, and he will have the ability to ease into the role with the experience in front of him.
