November 20, 2012According to a report late Tuesday night by ESPN, long-standing Purdue commitment Parker Cothren has switched to Penn State after a visit there this past weekend.
The Alabama native had been committed to the Boilermakers since June, and made his official visit to West Lafayette for Purdue's loss to Penn State, after which he fielded an offer from Penn State and subsequently visited.
The 6-foot-5, 250-pounder, recruited at least initially for defensive end, from Hazel Green High School becomes the second commitment to bolt to another Big Ten school.
Previously, former Purdue signee and current junior college sophomore Randy Gregory, a defensive end, decided to sign with Nebraska instead.
