Jonathan Curry pledges to Purdue 

August, 3, 2011
Purdue headed to the deep south to land its latest tight end commitment in Jonathan Curry (Phenix City, Ala./Phenix City). Curry 6-foot-2 and 225 pounds, committed to the Boilermakers over Louisville and Vanderbilt.

"Everything with Purdue fell perfectly in place," Curry said. "Early playing time, the relationships with the coaches, their offense and how I will be used were all just too good to pass up. Purdue is just a perfect fit for me.

"I have known that for a while, but I wanted to make 100 percent sure with everyone -- myself, family and coaches. We all agreed. Plus you get the great education at Purdue. I want to study communications and they have a great communications degree."
