Bearooz is a Boilermaker

Purdue landed a commitment from former NIU pledge Bearooz Yacoobi.

It's another important recruiting weekend for Purdue, and the first commitment is in. Bearooz Yacoobi, formerly a Northern Illinois pledge, has given his commitment to Purdue.

Yacoobi, a three-star offensive lineman, had been committed to Northern Illinois' class, but first received an offer from Purdue in December and began to reevaluate his recruitment.

During his weekend official visit in West Lafayette, Yacoobi made the flip and joined the Boilermakers' class. He is the 19th commitment for Darrell Hazell's first full class, and the third offensive lineman.

Boiler Sports Report will have a full story on Yacoobi's commitment. For continued updates on the eventful recruiting weekend, follow along on the Fort Mollenkopf insider board.
