Impact: Jalen might be able to make an impact right away.
We lose senior, Jacob Thieneman, but the starting void will most likely be filled by his younger brother, Brennan.
But, who is behind Brennan? There are a lot of question marks for that back up spot. Sure, we brought in some nice pieces to the secondary last year in the 2018 class, but none of them were really the down hill thumper that we need at strong safety, what Jalen exactly is.
We were long after Jalen, he finally gave a verbal to us in late October. First, we got a verbal from Marvin Grant out of Detroit, who knows Jalen fairly well. He helped recruit Jalen to West Lafayette.
We are indeed happy to have another run stuffing safety come to Purdue, one with a 6’2”, 210 pound frame - even better.
