A one-time Western Kentucky pledge, St. Stanislaus tight end Darius Pittman held firm to his most-recent commitment and signed with Purdue on Wednesday.
The former Gulfport Admiral had originally committed to WKU, but when Jeff Brohm was hired at Purdue, Pittman re-opened his recruitment. A few days later he re-committed to Brohm, pledging to the Boilermakers.
Pittman should fit in nicely in Brohm’s open offense. Pittman caught 61 passes for 690 yards and nine touchdowns this season. A year ago, Pittman recorded 56 catches for 926 yards and nine TDs.
Pittman ultimately chose Purdue over offers from Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisiana Tech, South Alabama, Texas San Antonio, Troy, Nicholls State, UAB and Idaho.
Pittman, along with St. Stanislaus teammates Myles Brennan (LSU), Chase Rogers (Louisiana-Lafayette) and Corbin Blanchard (Air Force), will hold a signing day ceremony at 12:30 p.m. at SSC.
