So should I keep going with the countdown? It seems very likely that, by the end of the week, the 2020 season will be formally cancelled. I would say there is less than a 1% change of playing right now. Do we keep going with the countdown however, just to honor the rest of the roster?

Anthony Romphf - Fr.

Southfield, MI (Southfield Arts & Tech HS)

6’, 190 pounds

Cornerback

2020 Projection: Likely redshirt

Romphf was recruit as an athlete, but Purdue is listing him as a cornerback on the official roster right now. In high school he played defensive back and quarterback. He agreed to come to Purdue over Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan State, and Pitt among others. He had originally committed to Florida Atlantic before switching to Purdue.

He was a pretty impressive dual threat QB in high school as seen in his highlight reel:

A player like Romphf brings versatility on either side of the ball, but it seems like he is destined for a redshirt this season.
