FOUR-STAR DEFENSIVE END!!!!

Sound that siren, Jeff Brohm has done it again. Greg Hudgins III, a defensive end from Washington, DC, committed this afternoon:

This is a huge get for Brohm, as Hudgins is a 4-star per Rivals at 6’4”, 226 pounds. 247 lists him as a 3-star prospect and ESPN has him as a 3-star.

Obviously a four-star commitment is huge, and he is the third such player in the 2020 class, joining Tirek Murphy and Michael Alaimo. He had a wealth of offers including Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, and Mississippi State, so he was a true national recruit. He also gives Purdue more depth up front in terms of a pass rush.

According to my chart we have one scholarship left for the 2020 class, but there is still time for that to shift with attrition and such. The 2020 class is far from done, but it is shaping up to be another solid one.
