4-Star Athlete Merhsawn Rice Commits to Purdue

Jeff Brohm gets the second 4-star commit in his 2019 class

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

Number of 4-star commitments (per Rivals) that Darrell Hazell landed: 2 (Danny Etling and Gelen Robinson)

Number of 4-star commitments (per Rivals) that Jeff Brohm landed: 2 (George Karlaftis and Mershawn Rice)

Mershawn Rice? Yeah, he is the new guy. As I was watching baseball Friday night in the rain Jeff Brohm was closing:

Rice is listed as a 6’2” 184 pound athlete from Reynoldsburg, Ohio. That’s right. Jeff Brohm just walked into Urban Meyer’s back yard and took a 4-star from him, as Reynoldsburg is just east of Columbus.

He projects mostly as a wide receiver, and getting a ridiculously athletic 6’2 receiver in the Brohmfense is something to salivate over. He is a 4-star on Rivals, a 3-star on 247, and a 3-star on ESPN.

So yeah, we got a hilariously gifted athlete to throw the ball to. We now have three commitments in the 2019 class and two of them are 4-star guys.
