Throughout the summer, we have viewed quite a few players and collected quite a few of their wish lists as a result. We want to make it clear that while these lists might contain the name of a particular school, there is no guarantee that school is recruiting the player, or, has even heard of the player. That caveat now said, here are the players this summer who mentioned Purdue as a university they liked at the time.

Will these players see the recruiting attention they desire of the schools they list? Or will they be the next Hannah Anderson, who would join the Purdue team as a walkon? Or will they be the next Ashley Walker, who listed Purdue as a freshman, would see no attention, and later go on to be the Pac-10 Freshman of the Year in 2006?
Time will tell.
