Timmons Talks Boilers Official

Purdue hosted one of the nation’s fastest receivers this past weekend for an official visit in Frankfort (Ky.) Franklin County four-star playmaker Ryan Timmons.

Four-star WR Ryan Timmons has taken official visits to Arkansas and Purdue.

This was the second official visit for the 5-foot-11, 180-pound Timmons, who previously traveled to Arkansas the weekend of Sept. 22. Other schools in the mix for Timmons includes Illinois, Kentucky, West Virginia and Ohio State, with the Buckeyes yet to offer.

Timmons had an opportunity to see Purdue back in the winter so this was a chance for him to grow his relationship with head coach Danny Hope and the staff.

“It was good,” Timmons said of his trip.

“I talked with Coach Hope a little more and met the other coaches I hadn’t met already. They told me to just take my time with the decision and that they’re sure about me and they want me, and for me to be sure about them.”

Timmons thinks Purdue could be a good fit.

“They’re losing a lot of receivers they have so I’d have a chance to play early,” Timmons said. “And school wise they have a great school.”

Timmons does not have any future visits scheduled. This fall he’s helped Franklin County to an 11-0 record heading into the second round of the state playoffs this weekend. As a junior, Timmons rushed for 1,375 yards and 18 touchdowns while recording another 1,102 yards and 20 touchdowns receiving. He is also the reigning state 100-meter champion in Class 2-A, posting the fastest time in the state regardless of class.
