Purdue Football Player Countdown: #91 Ben Buechel

Today we feature a player that was recruited by a few schools as a two-star recruit, but Purdue picked him up as a preferred walk-on.

New Berlin, WI (Eisenhower HS)

6’3”, 210 pounds

Tight End

2020 projection: likely redshirt

Buechel is an interesting pickup. He had originally committed to Air Force last October, but Purdue came in with a preferred walk-on offer and he made the switch. His high school played a run heavy offense last year, but he still caught 25 passes for 339 yards and four touchdowns.
