Purdue targets sophomore quarterback

Purdue has identified sophomore quarterback Noah Wezensky has a prospect. Boiler Sports Report details his recruitment.

Even though he's just a high-school sophomore, Noah Wezensky doesn't feel new to the recruiting world. He has received plenty of advice and guidance for the process, but doesn't need it.

"I've followed recruiting since I was a young kid, so I got the gist of it," Wezensky said.

It's still very early, but Wezensky's recruitment is off to a promising start. He already has a scholarship offer on the table, coming from Akron, and has received a flurry of interest from Cincinnati, Indiana, Michigan State, Notre Dame and Penn State. Now, Purdue has entered the mix.

Wezensky, a 6-foot-3, 185-pound quarterback from Fort Wayne, Indiana, isn't taking the recruiting success for granted.

"It's great to be going into my sophomore year and hearing from all these college coaches," Wezensky said.

Just recently, Purdue offensive coordinator John Shoop extended an invitation for Wezensky to attend any of the Boilermakers' home games this season.

While Wezensky has only spoken with Shoop briefly, he hopes that changes while visiting campus in West Lafayette. For each visit the quarterback takes this fall, he hopes to establish relationships.

"I'm kind of getting a view of the programs and seeing what they're all about," said Wezensky. "Getting to know the coaches is a must. They'll all be great experiences."

Wezensky doesn't have much of a grasp just yet for what the Purdue program offers. However, he trains with recent Boilermaker commit Drue Tranquill and the two have become friends. Tranquill is filling Wezensky's head with positive thoughts about Purdue.

"I've heard a lot of great things about the program," Wezensky said. "Obviously, it's a great tradition."

It's still very early in Wezensky's recruiting game, but he's off to a fast start. His hard work looks poised to pay off.

"I've been working hard early," he said. "It's all about getting your name out there. If you perform, good things are going to come. That's what I've been all about."
