Purdue football coach Danny Hope announced the signing of 23 student-athletes to National Letters of Intent to play for the Boilermakers. The group joins a pair of early enrollees as a 25-member recruiting class, Hope's fourth at Purdue.
Junior college defensive end Greg Latta, who signed with Purdue in December, and tight end Carlos Carvajal, who signed with Purdue last May, are already enrolled in school and will participate in team activities throughout the spring.
The incoming class of 2012 features a number of athletic prospects at a number of different positions that excelled in high school on both sides of the ball, as well as special teams.
The recruits hail from 13 different states: six from Florida; four from Indiana and Texas; two from Michigan; and one each from Alabama, Arkansas, California, Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia.
