Tyvel Jemison waiting on OK from Purdue

10/9/2012

For Tyvel Jemison (Fort Wayne, Ind./Bishop Luers), there is no playing the recruiting game. He is perfectly clear as to what his plans are for the future.

The 5-foot-10, 180-pound safety Jemison took his SAT on Saturday and said he just needs 100 more points for Purdue to take him. If he reaches that score, his recruitment will come to an end.

“I ain’t wasting no time,” said Jemison, who received a Purdue offer this past summer. “… All I need is 100 more points on my SAT. I did summer school, got two A's and it shot my GPA up a little higher, so all I got to do is stay on track.”

Jemison spoke with Purdue assistant coach Donn Landholm on Thursday, who reiterated to him the only thing keeping Purdue from accepting a commitment is his grades.

“He told me they’re finalizing what I need to do with my grades so I can go ahead and verbal commit and get on board,” Jemison said.

Toledo is Jemison's only other offer.
