Gold and Black Illustrated Tweeted out that redshirt sophomore Quarterback has decided to retire from football due to medical reasons.

Sipe, a member of the 2017 class -Brohm’s first class - originally committed to Darrell Hazell, before Jeff Brohm became the head football coach.

Sipe saw limited action last year, as the third string quarterback. He finishes his Purdue Career being 1 for 1, for 3 yards.

Now, the depth at Quarterback becomes very thin for the remainder of the season. Elijah Sindelar is out for the foreseeable future with a broken collarbone, leaving Jack Plummer (RS FR) and Paul Piferi (Frosh) as the only healthy scholarship quarterbacks.

Currently, Plummer is starting with walk on, Aidan O’Connell as the back up quarterback, expect Danny Carollo to be listed the 3rd string quarterback. Technically, Freshman Paul Piferi has 4 games he can use without burning his redshirt as well.

Next year, Mike Alaimo (4 Star) will be on campus to help with depth as well. Do not be surprised if Coach Jeff Brohm looks at another 2020 quarterback, a transfer to come in and help with depth as well.

We cannot forget this either - Elijah Sindelar has already been granted a 6th year of eligibility and is able to come back if he chooses so in 2020.

It appears as if Nick will finish his Purdue Career under an academic scholarship as well, letting him obtain his degree.

Once a Boiler, always a Boiler. Best of Luck on your future endeavors, Nick, Boiler Up.
