Name: Terry Wright
Position: Wide Receiver
Ranking: 3* by Rivals, JuCo Transfer
Brohm made wide receiver one of the position of priority for this class, with plucking into the JuCo ranks in hope that they will have an immediate impact. Terry Wright will join Isaac Zico as wide receivers to come to Purdue from the JuCo rank.

They were both sought after prospects and the fact that Brohm got both of them speaks volumes of his character and recruiting ability. With a class of 6 wide outs, it would be easy for recruits to go else where. But, with Brohm’s high octane offense wide outs are a must have as they are rotated all the time.
Some formations he uses has 4 receivers in at a time with no tight ends, every Saturday we could easily see 7 or 8 wide receivers rotate in and out all game. We now have 11 on the roster with the class, leaving 3 odd men out.
Wright decided between Purdue, Houston and Boise State. Being ranked a 3* prospect out of JuCo is pretty impressive, and deciding between those three colleges speaks volumes, as Boise State and Houston have been successful for many years. He comes to us from Coffeyville Community College in South Carolina, a hot bed for JuCo transfers.
Welcome to Purdue, Terry!
