Dartmouth, Mass. running back Jordan Todman holds one a Big Ten offer at this time. At least three other major college programs are taking a long hard look at the 5-foot-10, 165-pounder to consider offering.
"I've got an offer from Purdue," he said. "Other schools are definitely talking to me including Penn State, Boise State and Boston College. I'm on all of their boards; they are just waiting for the STAT which I'm taking in another week. They all say I'm a playmaker and they've love to have me. They are waiting on grades and want to see some film this year before pulling the trigger."
Obviously the Boilermakers have already gone that far. What does Todman think of them?

"Purdue is a good team in the Big Ten," he said. "They play a hard schedule and they along with the other schools have caught my eye. They are good teams that are doing well and are pretty close to home so my family can come and watch me play."
Todman confirmed he is looking at a visit to Purdue on October 20th when they play Iowa.
The two-star prospect went into more detail about what he wants in a college.
"Obviously I'm going to a school for an education in criminal justice," he said. "My parents are big on that and I want a place with a good graduation rate. I want a good school that plays a tough schedule and a place I know I'll play. A lot of big schools recruit so many athletes that guys can't get on the field. I want to play and I'd like to play running back since it comes easier to me."
Following a 2,000 yard, 28 touchdown junior season, Todman has picked up where he left off now in his senior year.
"The season is going well, we're 3-1," he said. "I'm having a good season. Through four games I've got about 700-yards rushing and 13 touchdowns. I have no regrets so far and I just want to improve on my strength, in order to break more tackles."
