Purdue is always looking for interior defensive line help.
Bryce was essentially recruited by the entire mid-west, fielding offers from all MAC schools as well as the list above.
Bryce is probably more of a 3-tech, rather than a nose tackle. He has pretty solid speed for a defensive lineman. Don’t expect him to slide out to defensive end. I believe he is solely an interior defensive lineman, similar to Lawrence Johnson.
Austin will have a chance to play at some point this year. Injuries happen and we aren’t particularly deep with the interior defensive line. He may not play a ton, but do not be surprised if CoacH Brohm uses those 4 games that are allowed with freshmen now.
Welcome to Purdue, Bryce. Boiler Up!
