Ryan Timmons' visit to Purdue gave the Boilermakers a leg up on the competition. Whether or not that lasts remains to be seen.

"It was great," the ESPN 300 athlete prospect from Frankfort (Ky.) Franklin said. "I went on my official this past weekend. It went well. I got a better understanding and a better feeling about the school."

Purdue's leg up on Timmons' other four finalists came thanks to more introductions. Of all the schools recruiting him, Timmons has only met one entire coaching staff. That's Purdue. He also was able to spend time with Boilermaker head coach Danny Hope.
