Purdue’s offensive line has improved greatly. In fact, it has improved so much that even the deep reserve walk-ons are quality players. Such is the case with today’s player.
Sam Garvin - Fr. (RS)
Fishers, IN (Hamilton SE HS)
6’1”, 295 pounds
2018 Projection: Deep reserve on the Offensive Line
You know that scene in Return of the Jedi where Darth Vader renounces the dark side and comes over to the light? That is Garvin. He was a walk-on last season... at Indiana. He was twice named the Scout Team player of the week for the Hoosiers. Then he saw the light.
While he was once a 2-star prospect that had a scholarship offer from Air Force he stayed in state as a walk-on. Now he is on the right side of the rivalry and history. he lasted just one semester there, as he was Purdue this spring and took part in spring football.
