Notre Dame Football Recruiting: Drue Tranquill To Make Decision Today

2014 Notre Dame Football Recruiting

Defensive Athlete Drue Tranquill will finally decide between Notre Dame and Purdue. Tranquill has been committed to Purdue since July 23, 2013. Notre Dame offered Tranquill on August 2nd. The two school have different theories of where Tranquill will play in their defensive. Purdue has him as the cornerstone of the defense and a safety. Notre Dame wants Tranquill to play as an Inside Linebacker.

Today, Tranquill will make the call. He tweeted last night that he had talked to both coaching staffs and was ready to make a decision. Although Notre Dame has a lot to offer, Tranquill is more likely to select Purdue over Notre Dame. He has maintained his commitment despite bigger programs coming in with offers. He can be the cornerstone of the recruiting class and play the position he will be best at. Finally, his brother, Justin, has an offer to Purdue. All of these factors indicate that Tranquill will pick Purdue.

Additionally, Notre Dame has come through with a few more offers at Middle Linebacker. It is likely that the staff thinks they need to move on.
