Purdue bolstered an already-strong defensive line class on Saturday, landing Carmel High School defensive end Will Heldt, a few weeks after he officially visited West Lafayette.

The Rivals.com three-star prospect chose Purdue over Iowa, which he officially visited last weekend. Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota, Northwestern, Vanderbilt, Duke and many others also offered Heldt, whose commitment extended a run of success for the Boilermakers at Carmel, the alma mater of assistant coach Mark Hagen.

Heldt is Purdue’s fourth defensive line commitment, joining defensive tackles Drake Carlson and Saadiq Clements and edge rusher Micah Carter.
