Early results for Purdue's big weekend
By Jared Shanker
The first big recruiting weekend for new Purdue coach Darrell Hazell is already paying dividends.
Outside linebacker Dezwan Polk (Columbus, Ohio/Whetstone) committed to the Boilermakers following an offer from Purdue while on an official visit Saturday. Polk's father, Tony Campbell, reported the news to ESPN.com.
Previously committed to walk on at Bowling Green, Polk was expecting an offer from Hazell this weekend. He and Campbell both said earlier in the week he would commit on the spot if an offer came.
"I'm expecting an offer and when they offer I'm committing ASAP," Polk said Monday.
The Boilermakers now have 13 commitments in their 2013 class.
