Purdue Football Recruiting: Dedrick Mackey Commits

Purdue snags another for the class of 2017 with Florida corner, Dedrick Mackey.

Ross-Ade Stadium Juan Crespo

I wrote about this corner just a couple of weeks ago. We got this verbal over a few Power 5 schools. Including an SEC school! Not named Vanderbilt, over Arkansas. This is another great pick up for the 2017 class, which seems to be rolling as of late. The coaches like to use #CrazyTrain17 if you are ever on Twitter and want to see anything football related.

Dedrick may love our plan to improve our facilities, maybe our coaches or maybe the retirment of Burke. But, in all honesty, I believe he sees an easy route to the field. We have depth there, but with all really young guys, he may believe that he is better than them, which could very well be true.

The 5'11" corner runs right in the 4.4 to 4.5 range on the 40, and his hudl highlights are impressive. Im not sure how Hazell and Co, are pulling in these recruits left and right, but I am not one to complain. This class could only get stronger if the Boilers show up on the field, starting in September.

Wome aboard, Dedrick!
