Late last night, Jalen Graham, via Twitter announced he would become a Boilermaker.

Graham, our top priority at safety this year, has been recruited for many months. He is 6’2”, 205 pounds, big enough to cover tight ends and fast enough to cover slot receivers. Graham is a 3* recruit both by Rivals and 247 Sports.

Jalen adds another key piece to the secondary that continues to get face lift, starting with the 2018 class of last year. It has been a priority to get tall, athletic defensive backs and that trend continued last night.

This brings our class back into the top 25, ranking 24th in the nation. Graham joins Marvin Grant as Detroit athletes coming to Purdue, both set to play defensive back. Graham had offers from all over.

Welcome to West Lafayette, Jalen, you have earned it.
