NCAA Football: C-USA Championship-Louisiana Tech at Western Kentucky Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

For the second day in a row Jeff Brohm has traded a 2-star Darrell Hazell commitment for a 3-star that was originally committed to him at Western Kentucky. First, we bid adieu to offensive lineman Jylton Tusha, who announced via Twitter that he is re-opening his commitment:

That opened a spot for Darius Pittman, who was originally committed to Brohm at Western Kentucky.

Pittman played for St. Stanislaus High in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi and he is a three-star commitment according to Rivals. He is unrated according to ESPN as of right now. According to MaxPreps this season he had 61 receptions for 690 yards and 9 touchdowns. He is currently listed at 6’2”, 230 pounds, so he could potentially be a regular receiver too.

In terms of offers Pittman was offered by Colorado State, Texas-San Antonio, Southern Miss, and a few other smaller programs. As stated, he was committed to Western Kentucky before following Brohm to Purdue. Here are his Hudl highlights.

This is a pretty good pickup. Purdue used Cole Herdman and Bryson Hopkins quite a bit within the offense this year. With a great need at receiver he could play immediately.
