West Central High School in the middle of nowhere is rarely a place to look for football talent, but Purdue has found a walk-on cornerback from there.
Cody Denton - So.
Francesville, IN (West Central HS)
5'11", 170 pounds
2016 Projection: Reserve at cornerback
Franceville, Indiana is pretty much a dot on a map about 40 miles straight north of West Lafayette, and West Central HS is one of the smallest high schools in the state with a football team. It has less than 300 students, so Denton is a player that had to play both ways out of necessity. He graduated in 2014 with a couple of interceptions and tackles, but was primarily a kickoff returner for a team that made the sectional championship game two years in a row.
Denton joined the team this spring as a walk-on and looks to be a player that is a long way away from playing on Saturdays.
