Purdue Football Recruiting: Crishawn Long Signs LOI

Purdue inks an inside linebacker with a ton of potential.

NCAA Football: Senior Bowl-North Practice Glenn Andrews-USA TODAY Sports

Its official!

Name: Crishawn Long

Hometown: Parma, Ohio

Position & Size: Inside Linebacker, 6’2”, 195 Pounds

Ranking: 2* Rivals, 3* 247 Sports

Offers: Ball State, Cincinnati, IU, Toledo

Impact: Coach Holt loves long and athletic linebackers. That is exactly what he is getting with Long.

Crishawn is a little thin to play right away, but as we have seen in the past, Coach Brohm loves to put his young linebackers on special teams, so you never know what can happen with him.

In my opinion, which doesn’t matter, Long should take a redshirt year to fill his frame out and get stronger and be ready to play in year 2. Long is a project player that should pay off in the long run.

Welcome to West Lafayette!
