Purdue lands commitment from four-star QB Marcos Davila
Midland (Texas) Legacy four-star quarterback Marcos Davila has committed to Purdue, he announced via Twitter on Monday afternoon following a weekend visit to West Lafayette.
Davila, who decommitted from TCU on Feb. 22, was taking in interest from a large handful of Power Five programs, but Purdue had a leg up with offensive coordinator Graham Harrell on staff who connected with his fellow Texas native throughout his recruitment.
"Just his character," Davila said about what stands out about Harrell ahead of his Purdue visit. "He's been really great to me and my family. I feel like he's one of the most honest recruiters I talk to. He shows me a lot of love all the time."
When Harrell was at West Virginia, the Mountaineers came close to beating out TCU for Davila's initial commitment. Now with the landscape changed following the carousel of a few coordinators, Davila is the newest member of the Boilermakers' 2024 class.
While schools such as Colorado and Miami became increasingly present in his recruitment in the weeks since the re-opening of his recruitment, Davila has locked things down after a big visit weekend with the reigning Big Ten West champs.
What made him lock it down over the weekend?
"The coaching staff and the opportunity I will have at Purdue," he said.
Davila is Purdue's third commitment in the 2024 cycle and the first four-star pledge for the Boilermakers' since the arrival of Ryan Walters as head coach.
At 6-foot-3, 210 pounds, Davila is ranked as the No. 246 recruit in the country for the class of 2024, according to Rivals. He is the No. 14 ranked pro-style quarterback in the country and the No. 43 recruit from the state of Texas.
