Training camp starts today for Purdue football, and with that comes the official roster with the incoming freshmen for the first time. I look forward to this day because it always helps me catch up on the scholarship grid because it shows the attrition of past classes. This year we had a huge incoming freshman class, and we now know which numbers they will be wearing:

1 Mershawn Rice

3 David Bell

4 Marvin Grant

5 Da’Joun Hewitt (offense)

5 George Karlaftis (defense)

6 Jalen Graham

8 TJ Sheffield

9 Milton Wright

10 Cam Allen

12 Dontay Hunter

18 Paul Piferi

19 Brooks Cormier

22 King Dorue

24 Nyles Beverly

26 Crishawn long

33 Khali Saunders

37 Chris Van Eekeren (walk-on kicker)

37 Jacob Wahlberg

48 Kyle Bilodeau

50 Sulaiman Kpaka

57 Will Chapman (walk-on LB)

60 Dave Monnot III

68 Cam Craig

73 Kyle Jornigan

75 Spencer Holstege

80 Camdyn Childers (walk-on receiver)

86 Hunter McDonald (walk-on long snapper

88 Garrett Miller

93 Steven Faucheux

In addition to the freshmen, graduate transfer Ben Holt will wear No. 44.

By my unofficial count we now have 77 players on scholarship. This included Joey Wahlberg, who was bundled into this year’s count and not against last year’s 25 via science or magic (likely one of the blue shirt/grey shirt possibilities). Chase Triplett is not yet on the roster and is likely grey shirting until spring semester.

Purdue is also going to be extremely young. We currently have just 11 players listed as seniors on scholarship plus two more walk-ons (Malcolm Dotson and David Day). Sindelar will have a 6th year and return in 2020, while Alex Criddle technically can use last year as a redshirt and return next season.

Purdue also has just 10 players listed as juniors, making for a small class of seniors again next year. There are just 12 players that have used one full year of eligibility as well. That means we have just 33 scholarship players that have used at least one year of eligibility. The remaining 45 on the scholarship chart are freshmen in some capacity.

That bodes well for 2020 and 2021, as we’ll return a roster with a ton of experience. It also means that a bunch of guys will play this year that have never played college football before.
