Todman returns from Purdue

Dartmouth, Mass. running back Jordan Todman took the first official visit of the season to his lone offer Purdue. What did the 5-foot-10, 185-pounder think of the trip and is he close to committing?
"It went good, I liked it," he said. "It was my first official and I didn't know what to expect. They showed me college life and it was a good experience.
"I'm definitely going home to talk about it with my parents and tell them about the positives. I can't say one thing negative about it."

Todman arrived at Purdue on Saturday morning. What did he do before the game?
"I went there, ate some food, watched the game and then afterwards hung out with a few players including my host Jaycen Taylor. It was good hanging out with Jaycen. He's easy to get along with and we had some good conversations. He just showed me how things work, talked about time management and showed me the ropes."
The purpose of the visit for the two-star tailback was to take in the game.
"The game was good too," he said. "Michigan State pulled off the victory. It wasn't an easy game, no game in the Big Ten is. All of those teams are good. The fans were great, they were yelling and screaming. I also liked what they did with the running backs. They use them in the passing game."
Before leaving today, Todman met with a few of the coaches.
"I talked to them including Joe Tiller," he said. "It was good. They told me about the past history of Purdue and Coach Tiller talked about his plans of staying there. They also talked about the classes I've be taking and academics."
The visit was a good one for the No. 4 prospect in Massachusetts. Where do the Boilermakers stand now for him?
"At this point, they are really high up there for me," he said. "The official visit made a big difference. Hopefully I'll be able to take some other officials coming up. It is very possible I could commit to Purdue in time.
"I do want to see what Boise State, Penn State and Connecticut do. All of them haven't offered quite yet."
