Purdue brings some big, beefy, boys to the defensive trenches next season.

In transfer portal era, it’s quite nice and increasingly rare to look at a position group and see that everyone is coming back. Not only that, but all of them have multiple years of eligibility remaining.

Returning this year for the boilers will be two guys who were the main nose guards/defensive tackles in 2023 with two years left, a former starter returning from an injury with two years left, and a young gun with four years left who’s destined to be a gap plugger at his size.
