Another day, another walk-on as we count down the list on a hot, lazy Sunday.
Jacob Thieneman - Fr. (RS)
Noblesville, IN (Guerin Catholic HS)
6', 205 pounds
2015 Projection: Deep reserve at safety
Thieneman is a player that comes from a program that has been up and down in its brief existence. Guerin Catholic started its program in 2006, but it has already had some good seasons. Thieneman was part of a sectional championship team his senior season despite a 2-7 regular season. When he was a sophomore Guerin came within a game of the state finals before losing to Evansville Mater Dei in the semi-state.
His recruiting profile said he had a 4.0 GPA in high school, and while he had several teammates play at smaller schools, he was able to make it on the roster here at Purdue.
Theineman has been on the roster for two seasons now, but has yet to play.
