Jake Replogle follows own path to Purdue
All three of Jake Replogle's brothers played college football at Indiana, but the youngest Replogle (Centerville, Ohio/Centerville) will suit up for Purdue after committing to the Boilermakers. There are no hard feelings however, as he told the Journal and Courier:
"They [his brothers] are all 100 percent behind me. They want what is best for me and Purdue is what is best for me."
Jake Replogle, who had 42 tackles and six sacks in 2011 at defensive end, also had offers from Air Force, Ball State, Bowling Green, Kent State, Miami (Ohio), Navy and Toledo.
Centerville coach Ron Ullery believes his star player has a lot of upside:
"Purdue is getting a kid that, and it's cliche, but his best football is ahead of him."
The Boilermakers have six commitments for the Class of 2013.
