#59 Purdue Football 2012 Preview
July 7, 2012Richmond High School
Purdue got a nice gift when defensive tackle Kawann Short opted to return to West Lafayette, Indiana for his senior season. As a junior last year he tallied 54 tackles, 10.5 tackles-for-loss and 6.5 sacks. Short will lead the defensive effort up front, but he will have help from junior tackle Bruce Gaston. Defensive end Ryan Russell had a very promising freshman campaign and could be the pass rushing threat the Boilermakers need on the edge.
