Purdue Football: Five Incoming Freshmen to Watch

Do you see a theme here? With yesterday’s report of how thin we are at cornerback, these incoming freshmen in the secondary will have all the opportunity in the world to find some early playing time in the secondary.

Don’t be surprised if you see all three at some point this season. My personal favorite is Rickey Smith from Orlando. Rickey had an offer to play at the U, but saw an opportunity to play early and often and came up north.

I think some of these guys could also play safety, but with the definite need at cornerback, look for them all to make at least an attempt at cornerback.
