Purdue is still searching for defensive line help this spring.

After adding Joseph Anderson, a former 4 star defensive lineman that was with South Carolina and Damarjhe Lewis from Indiana University, Coach Brohm is still not content with his depth on the defensive line.

Well, help could be on the way, in the shape of massively talented Nose Guard, Tony Fair. This weekend he announced his top 3 and our Purdue Boilermakers were included.

Fair has bounced around a few places, but, he is highly sought after and will be an immediate impact guy in most places, for Purdue, he would probably be penciled in as our starting nose guard this fall.

Fair is the same mold as former nose tackle, Lorenzo Neal, a big man that is built to stop the run and be able to two gap when necessary. Auburn appears to be a tough out on this one, but with the amount of playing time available on the Purdue defensive line and 3 of 4 pieces being proved commodities, maybe Tony will come in and be the last starting piece we need.
