Purdue Gears Up For Big Weekend

Greenwood (Ind.) Center Grove tight end Nate Wozniak will take his official visit to Purdue this weekend, per his head coach Eric Moore.

In-state TE Nate Wozniak has Purdue in his top two along with Miami (Fla.).

Boilermakers assistant coach Kevin Sherman was at Center Grove to check in on the 6-foot-10, 255-pound Wozniak on Monday.

Wozniak took a previous official visit to Miami the weekend of Dec. 7, and according to Moore, he feels the Hurricanes are the team to beat.

“He likes Miami and I think he was going to (commit) to Miami on his visit but they told him to look at other places to make sure it’s the right place,” Moore said. “A little different recruiting voice but he should look at other schools.

“He’s going to see Purdue and be open minded,” Moore continued. “Purdue will have to show him something significant to say hey I don’t want to go to Miami.”

Moore added that Wozniak may also visit Minnesota before making a final decision, and that schools continue to call to see if he’s interested.

Big Recruiting Weekend

Canton (Ohio) McKinley defensive end Antoine Miles is a former Nebraska commit now considering Kentucky and Purdue. He took his official visit to Lexington last weekend and will get his first look at the Boilermakers this coming weekend.

Saint Clairesville (Ohio) High receiver Dan Monteroso, a Boston College commit, is on the list to take an official visit to West Lafayette this weekend. Boilermakers head coach Darrell Hazell will be at his school on Monday.

Boilermakers head coach Darrell Hazell will visit Florida TE Matt Burke this week.

U.S. Army All-American tight end Matt Burke of West Palm Beach (Fla.) Cardinal Newman landed a recent offer from Purdue and has the Boilermakers among his leaders Boise State, San Diego State and Harvard. He already took officials to see the Broncos and Aztecs. Hazell will be in to see Burke this week as well.

Indianapolis (Ind.) Heritage Christian receiver/safety Anthony Warrum could pick up a late offer from Purdue. The state’s all-time leading receiver caught 90 passes for 1,813 yards and 26 touchdowns during the fall.

Purdue commits Tyvel Jemison and Jake Replogle will also be taking their official visits.
