Purdue Football Recruiting: 2018 Running Back Class

A lone running back from down south will be here soon.

NCAA Football: Indiana at Purdue Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

Evan Anderson

6’1”, 200 Pounds, 3*

Suwanee, Georgia

Offers: Stetson, Army, VMU, Marshall and Chattanooga

The list of offers is not that long, nor that impressive. But, that doesn’t hide this hidden gem from the peach state.

Evan is a talented running back with great size. It took our staff a little bit of time to find this young man, but I truly believe he is a hidden gem.

According to his HUDL page, he runs a 4.5 forty yard dash, which is impressive with his size, he also has a vertical leap of 39 inches, another impressive number.

Do not expect Evan to come in and be an instant impact type of kid. He is very talented, but he also has a stable of running backs in front of him. This includes Markell Jones, D.J. Knox, Richie Worship and Tario Fuller - that is quite the 4 deep of Running backs. When healthy they could be considered the best group in the conference.

Welcome to Purdue, Evan!
