You never know what to expect when you are dealing with high school aged kids. Out of left field tonight, former BYU RB/DB commit, Cedric Dale announced on Twitter that he is headed to Purdue. Purdue?
I can understand a kid that is non-LDS and from a state that is a long way from home might experience some cold feet and change his mind. But going to Purdue? There isn’t many programs within the “Big 5″ conferences that have been worse than the Boilermakers. Maybe, there is a bigger opportunity for him there. Hope it works out well for him. Would have been an interesting prospect at BYU.
Here are Dale’s comments on Twitter from tonight.
Many folks felt Dale had an opportunity to replace J.D. Falslev as a return specialist next season. Now the attention turns to 2014 commit, Trey Dye. There has been back and forth talks about Dye going on a mission straight out of high school. From what we know right now Dye is expected to play the 2014 season and then head on a mission. Of course Dye is the son of arguably the best return man in BYU history, James Dye.
Always tough to lose skill players this late in the process, but BYU still has some quality talent that could possibly fax their letter of intents on February 5th.
