Purdue is one of the schools that would love to land Charleston (W.V.) George Washington School running back Ryan Switzer, a dynamic play maker from the Class of 2013 that is a thrill to watch in the open field.
Actually, Switzer is being recruited by most schools as a return man, on both punts and kickoffs, and a slot receiver.
Purdue has verbally offered the 5-foot-10, 170-pound prospect and the Boilermakers were glad to see Switzer in town on Saturday.
Of course, the game against Notre Dame didn't go well for the Boilers. The Irish dominated from start to finish and left town with a 38-10 victory. Nonetheless, Switzer said he enjoyed his time at the school.
"I just got back from the visit to Purdue and the campus looks really nice during the fall. Other than the game everything went really well and was good," he added.
Switzer has two more trips lined up for the near future.
"I'm going to the Wake Forest-Florida State game and that's at Wake," he said. "Then October 22 I'm going to the Notre Dame-USC game for a Notre Dame visit."
Oregon, Tennessee, Alabama, Penn State, Florida State and Stanford are some of the other schools that are in talks with Switzer.
