Rivals250 CB Tarrion Grant goes in-depth on his Purdue commitment

On Sunday, Purdue scored a massive commitment in the 2025 class by landing Murfreesboro (Tenn.) Seigel cornerback Tarrion Grant, the No. 36 player in the country.

The Rivals250 product chose the Boilermakers over a final list that also included Oregon, Virginia Tech, Louisville, and LSU. In total, Grant has 24 offers on his resume.

The 6-foot-3, 185-pound talent details his commitment to Purdue with below.

- On why Purdue won out in his recruitment:

"When Coach (Joe) Dineen came down to see me at the school probably last fall and from there it just clicked. I went on a visit and the first time I was on campus I just felt the energy and it felt like home. Also, I had known Coach (Sam) Carter since he was at Ole Miss, so we already had that relationship and that connection. I always known I wanted to play ball with Coach Carter because he can get kids to the next level. I just like the way he recruits. He just wants to build a relationship with you. He wants to know you."

- On what he likes about Sam Carter's coaching style:

"He's an aggressive coach. They run man and cover two and I'm that sit-down corner, I'm a man coverage corner and can hold it down on an island. That's what I like about their system."

- On his gameday visit to Purdue this past season:

"Me and my parents went up there for a gameday visit. I just wanted my Mom and Dad to see what it's like at Purdue. They started liking it and they saw what I saw in the school in the atmosphere and the coaching staff wanting what's best for me and how they would take care of me."
