Purdue Football got some GREAT news today.
While continuing to work on the class for 2021, it just received a verbal commitment for the class of 2022, in Brady Allen.
Brady is only going into his Junior Season at Gibson Southern High School, but he started to turn heads as a freshman when he walked in and grabbed the starting quarterback job.
At 6-5, 200 Pounds, already, he has plenty of room to grow and fits that prototypical Jeff Borhm mold for a quarterback. Tall, has pocket presence but is absolutely athletic enough to make plays with his legs.
Brady is coming from way down south of Indiana, an area that is always hard for Purdue to recruit, with it being close to Louisville, IU, and UK.
As of now, 247 Sports has Brady ranked as the 19th best quarterback for the class of 2022, he was up at 15, but somehow dropped, even with no summer camps going on. You can expect that ranking to go back up after he will once again dominate at Gibson Southern.
During his Sophomore Season, Brady threw for over 2,500 yards and 30 touchdowns, with completing over 60% of his passes.
But, while 2022 is far off, Brady will be challenged in the quarterback room at Purdue. It will still be crowded, but as we all know, Coach Brohm likes to create competition at the quarterback spot, in hopes that the cream of the crop will rise.
In 2022 you will have this as the quarterbacks on roster:
- Jack Plummer - Senior
- Paul Piferi - Junior
- Mike Alaimo - Sophomore (RS) (Guessing he RS)
- Sam Jackson - Freshman (RS) (Another guess at a RS)
Now, there is a lot of time between now and the fall of 2022, and that quarterback room could look completely different.
But, Brady Allen isn’t a talent you can pass up, he, in my opinion, has the highest ceiling of any Jeff Brohm Quarterback Commit thus far. He has all the tools you love in a quarterback and he probably just got his drivers license!
He can throw on the run, has nice touch on his deep ball and has great pocket presence to go with it. He will only get better his last two years of high school football.
Jeff Brohm got a special one. Boiler Up!
