Khordae Sydnor announced his commitment to Purdue via Twitter today. His announcement came via video, a video which honestly, has to be the best commit video I have seem in 4 years of writing for Hammer and Rails, take a look.
Khordae is coming to us in 2021 from New York, New York. A city that has been destroyed by COVID-19, as he shows how close to home it is in the start of his video.
Khordae is listed as a defensive end, but with his 83 inch wingspan, at 6-5, 245 pounds, he is a perfect candidate to be a stand up outside linebacker in our new 3-4 defensive scheme.
Khordae appears to be a hard worker and dedicated to the game of football. By looking at his offers, my guess is he is one hell of a student as well. Ivy League Schools do not just offer anyone. He has offers from Columbia, Dartmouth and Penn.
247 lists him at 6-4, 230, but his Twitter page states he is 6-5, 245 pounds with that massive 83 inch wingspan, again, perfect for an Outside Linebacker in the 3-4 defense.
Take a peak at his highlights. I think he will be one hell of a ball player. Welcome, Khordae, Boiler Up!
