Purdue dipped heavily into he wild west of the transfer market this offseason, and today’s player is one expected to have an immediate impact.
OC Brothers - So.
Southwest Brevard County, Fla. (Auburn University)
6’2”, 220 pounds
2021 Projection: Starter
As a redshirt freshman last season Brothers only played in one game for Auburn, but there is a measure of “hey, we got a transfer from an SEC school, so he has to be good” with him. He played in two games as a true freshman with two tackles against Kent State and Samford in 2019. Auburn won those games by a combined score of 107-16.
He was originally a three-star recruit out of Florida who had 99 tackles, 6.0 TFL, and five interceptions as a senior. He projects mostly as an outside linebacker, but given the injury to Semisis Fakasiieiki he could see a shift inside out of necessity.
