Name: Jordan Rucker
Position/Size: Defensive Back, 6’, 190 Pounds
Other Offers: Arizona State, Illinois, SMU, Texas Tech
Impact: Jordan is headed north. I hope he will bring his coat with him.
Jordan is a shut down defensive back from the lone star state. Other power 5 schools agree with me here, he is legit.
He mostly played corner in high school and that is where I would guess he stays at for Purdue. His highlight tape shows a lot to me. Particularly, his great foot work. His back peddle is some of the best I have seen, he then opens his hips to run with the receiver with ease, it is really impressive.
We will be losing two corners at the season’s end. Jordan could be a candidate to come in and get in the rotation. The talent is there, hopefully it shows in summer camp.
Welcome to Purdue.
