2022 College Recruiting - 3 Commits

Last Player Grade Published on July 24, 2021
Purdue logo RB Kentrell Marks (Cleveland, OH) commits to Purdue  View Class

Marks (6-1, 180) is listed at running back, but I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up as a wide receiver or a defensive back. He has played wide receiver on the camp circuit and has been given high marks for his hands. Marks proved to be a very productive player out of the backfield, gaining almost 1,500 yards and scoring over 20 touchdowns for Valley Forge High as a junior. He runs a little high, but the footwork is smooth, and Marks is a natural athlete. I think a position change is in the works for college.

Kentrell Marks' Player Grade: C+
Purdue logo DE/LB Roman Pitre (Baton Rouge, LA) commits to Purdue  View Class

Pitre (6-4, 218) is a big athlete who will likely end up as an outside linebacker, coming off the edge as a pass-rush specialist, or with his hand in the ground as a defensive end. He lacks explosiveness, which is probably a reason why most of the top-end Power Five schools were looking at him, but not offering him a scholarship. Pitre is a little stiff and could really work on his bend and flexibility to gain a little more twitch. There's some clear physical upside there, however, and for Purdue, I think Pitre is a good prospect to take a flyer on.

Roman Pitre's Player Grade: C+
Purdue logo DL/LB Nic Caraway (Bryan, TX) commits to Purdue  View Class

Caraway (6-3, 235) could end as a big linebacker or continue to put on weight and end up on the defensive line. His tackle number in high school (78) is pretty high because he was predominately playing linebacker. Caraway looks comfortable in the box and could certainly stay there and be an effective player. If he moves to the defensive line, I think Caraway would be a defensive end with his hand in the ground. He could develop into a guy who would set the edge and defend against the perimeter run. I don't know that Caraway possesses the twitch necessary to be a natural pass rusher.

Nic Caraway's Player Grade: C
