WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -- Wide receiver D.J. Donley will leave Georgia Tech and play for Purdue starting in 2009.
Donley intends to make the move this summer and will have three years of eligibility, Purdue said in a news release Tuesday.
As a freshman for the Yellow Jackets last season, the 6-foot-4 Donley had eight receptions for 101 yards and a touchdown in 13 games. He caught a 20-yard touchdown pass and blocked a punt against Fresno State in a 40-28 loss in the Humanitarian Bowl on Dec. 31.
On special teams, Donley recorded nine tackles, blocked two punts and recovered one fumble. Against Clemson on Sept. 29, Donley blocked a punt that led to a Georgia Tech touchdown and recovered a fumble on a punt return that led to another score.
Donley attended Charlton County High School in Georgia, the same school that produced Purdue junior cornerback David Pender, sophomore linebacker DeVarro Greaves and incoming freshman athlete Ralph Bolden.
