Purdue is looking for some immediate help in 2020.

Coach Brohm and his staff had a busy week of recruiting during the off week.

Not high school kids, as it appears the 2020 class is probably about rounded out with incoming freshmen.

Instead, the were involved in the Junior College Market this week, with a few offers being announced via Twitter.

Why is this important?

Well, we have immediate holes to fill for next year and if we want to win with this young team, we will need some already developed talent to come in and contribute - or some players who just got to the age of being able to buy a lottery ticket.

Expect Purdue to stay hot on the Junior College Market in the next month or so, as well as for grad transfers.

Don’t be surprised if quarterback is looked at hard as well - who knows if Sindelar is coming back or not - if not, then we are very young and thing at quarterback.

So far, what I have found from the Twitter world are these following players:

Damarcus is a MAN. 247sports.com lists him at 6-4, 240, his Twitter profile says 6-4, 260! Purdue is recruiting this man child to play some inside linebacker, while he has been an outside backer or edge rusher during JUCO ball, I think he could play inside - he is athletic enough to do so.

Remember Ja’Whaun Bentley? He has that same size and athleticism.

Ronald would be a huge late class get. He is getting offered by EVERYONE right now - he will be hard to acquire, but if so - he would be a starter from day 1 at cornerback. He is that good.

A literal man child. Look at that 247 Sports Profile Picture. Krishon is being recruited to play inside linebacker. He could be another plug and play or provide quality depth while our younger guys develop. To date, we are his biggest offer.

Straight of of #LastChanceU #DreamU, Johari Branch thrived under new coach Kiyoshi Harris. Branch would provide immediate help into the interior offensive line, which has been well, less than stellar. Branch also has offers from Maryland and Illinois.
