Brycen Hopkins and Cole Herdman have been excellent targets for Purdue quarterbacks under Jeff Brohm. That makes tight end recruiting an attractive spot. This morning that is who we got in Kyle Bilodeau.
I am extremely blessed and excited to announce that I will continue my academic studies and athletic career at Purdue University! #boilerUp #brohmsquad @BoilerFootball #Hammerdown #TrainCom1n9 pic.twitter.com/tQaUBIM62u— Kyle Bilodeau (@kylebugb) June 15, 2018
Bilodeau is listed as a 6’6” 238 pound TE from Woodberry Forest, Virginia. He is rated as a 3-star by both Rivals and 247. His ESPN profile has a promising highlight video. Here are some more highlights:
This is another good pickup for coach Brohm in advance of another major official visit weekend. The 2019 recruiting class is already top 40 nationally and this move may move it into the top 30. The other good news is that with the early signing period in December we can lock down most of these guys even earlier.
Bilodeau fits in at a good spot too with Herdman being a senior this year and Hopkins plus Jess Trussell being seniors during the 2019 season.
