Purdue Football: Charles Allen Signs LOI

Coach Brohm used his Louisville pipeline to get this massive guard.

NCAA Football: Purdue at Northwestern David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Charles Allen

Position/Size: Offensive Lineman(Guard), 6’4” 300 Pounds

Ranking: 3*

Other Offers: Miami (OH), Western Kentucky

Impact: Don’t be concerned by his lack of FBS offers. Charles was one of our first commits for the 2018 class, giving us his verbal back in June. He was clear that Purdue was the school he was choosing to go to, so many schools backed off.

Charles is the type of lineman we need here at Purdue. He is a mean SOB. While he played Tackle in high school, I think his skill set will suit him much better for playing guard at Purdue.

At 6’4”, 300 Pounds, we could play him at tackle, but Coach Brohm has a couple of guys that are longer and more athletic coming in to play tackle in Jimmy McKenna and Eric Miller.

Charles is a moose too, he benches over 325 pounds and can deadlift over 400 pounds. He will be a mainstay on our offensive line for years to come.

Take a peek at his highlights below.

Welcome aboard, Charles. Boiler Up!
