Highland CC Receiver Madison Commits

Over the last two seasons Highland CC (Kans.) wide receiver Tony Madison has been a picture of consistency. His breakaway speed and excellent hands have made him a target of several recruiting coordinators in need of immediate help at wide receiver.

Last weekend Madison tripped Purdue and during that trip he committed to Coach Tiller.

"I can come in and start. I like the way they pass the ball a lot," said Madison.

But all is not over for Madison just yet as he is giving late-charging Kansas State a visit.

"I'm going to K-State this weekend just to make sure I'm making the right decision."

Madison finished the 2001 season with 38 catches for 664 yards and 7 touchdowns. He also contributed 399 yards on kick returns. Those numbers earned him first-team All-Jayhawk Conference honors.

"People would say that I am a deep ball threat. I can break the game open at any time. I'll take a short ball and turn it into a long gain," said Madison.

Kansas and Central Michigan were other schools in the running for Madison's services.

He will join two other JC receivers, who have already committed to Purdue: Anthony Chambers (Independence CC) signed at midyear and Wesley Williams (San Joaquin Delta) signed midyear but didn't clear an academic hurdle. The latter will enter Purdue in May. Additionally, Coffeyville CC wide receiver, Eddie Jackson (6-4, 215), is scheduled to visit Purdue this coming weekend after a midweek trip to Washington.
