Purdue National Signing Day 2016: Benaiah Franklin and Simeon Smiley Commit

Purdue adds a multi-talented athlete to the offense and another impressive defensive back to the secondary.

Purdue picked up a Swiss army knife athlete in Georgia wide receiver Benaiah Franklin. Franklin can do a little bit of everything, and just needs the ball in his hand.

Simeon Smiley was a late, and vital pick up, pick up for the Boilermakers, who closed well in the waning moments of the 2016 recruiting class. Smiley is a big, athletic corner back from Pensacola, Florida.

More to come on Franklin and Smiley a little later in the day.
