Since Coach Jeff Brohm arrived at Purdue, he has received three commitments from West Lafayette High School’s Football Program.

George Karlaftis, Yanni Karlaftis and now Mo Omonode have all become Boilers, making the two block walk from WL HS to Ross-Ade Stadium.

Mo, as he is called, has been sitting on a Purdue offer for quite some time. He was stringing the decision out since the summer, deciding whether he wanted to stay home or go to a smaller school away from home.

Mo, who was also an All State Wrestler in his first year of the sport, will be an interior defensive lineman for Purdue.

At 6-1, 260 pounds, he is a bit undersized at the moment, but during his time at West Lafayette HS, he has worked his butt off to get to where he is today. Expect the same at Purdue, where he very well may be the hardest working incoming player for the freshman class.

He is probably destined to redshirt his first year on campus to gain some strength and weight, but at some point during his career, he will be a very good contributor on the defensive line.

Currently, 3 of 4 Purdue Defensive Line Starters are from the state of Indiana, Branson Deen, George Karlaftis and Lawrence Johnson are all from the Boilermaker State.

As Purdue continues to try and build depth on the defensive line, getting Big Mo was a nice under the radar snag. While only being a 2 Star according to 247 Sports, he has a high motor and has made great plays during his varsity career for the Red Devils.

Welcome to Purdue!
