66 Days to Purdue Football: Cameron Cermin

Depth along the offensive line is key for Purdue in 2015.

Sandra Dukes-USA TODAY Sports

Consistency along the offensive line is likely what will be the difference between a good season and another bad season for Purdue. Fortunately, we have all five starters returning on a unit that improved drastically from 2013 to 2014. One of players responsible for that improvement is today’s player.

Cameron Cermin – Jr.

College Station, Texas (A&M Consolidated HS)

6’5" 301 pounds

Offensive Line

2015 Projection: Possible starter along the offensive line.

With depth being critical up front having a player like Cermin available is handy. He started eight games and played in all 12 last season. He has played both left and right tackle in his career, so he can fill in wherever he is needed. He has been limited with a shoulder injury of late and because of that, he is not currently on the depth chart.

That does not mean he is a bad player. If anything his injury gave valuable spring experience to freshmen Bearooz Yacoobi and Martesse Patterson. At minimum he is a valuable reserve useful in case of injury. When healthy he is a solid tackle that blocked well for a much improved offense last season.
