Roos Chooses Purdue
"I called Coach (Danny) Hope and let him know I was committing," said Jordan Roos, a Scout.com three-star prospect and the #71-rated offensive guard in the country. "He was heading to a meeting, but he took extra time to talk with me and my dad. Coach Hope said I was always their first pick at my position, and they hoped I would eventually pick Purdue. "Coach Hope is a really good guy. Purdue was my first (BCS) offer, and they showed me a crazy amount of attention. They told me, 'Everybody wants you, we need you.' I liked the sound of that. I didn't want to make the (recruiting) process go on any longer. If you find what you want, why not go ahead and take it?" Roos gave serious consideration to Louisville, Colorado and TCU before giving his verbal pledge to the Boilermakers. "I"m going to watch Purdue at Rice this year," said Roos. "I'm planning to take my official visit when Purdue plays Notre Dame. Another thing: My dream is to play in the NFL and throw the shot in the Olympics, and Purdue is going to allow me to participate in both football and track. Their track coach has a good relationship with the football coaches. I'm excited, ready to take the next step in my career, and ready to get after it." Now, Roos will focus on his senior season at Celina, which went 11-1 last year. "We have a great offensive line," he said. "Across the board, we go 6-7, 290 (left tackle), 6-3, 260 (left guard), 6-3, 290 (center), I'm 6-4 to 6-5 and 290 (right guard) and Jake Raulerson -- our right tackle -- is 6-5, 250. "I'd like to see a bigger high school line than that."
