BIOGRAPHY: Junior-college transfer and part-time starter the past two seasons. Posted 57/814/8 as a senior after 34/630/7 the previous year. Suspended for the season opener last year after several off-field incidents including a citation for suspicion of DUI.
POSITIVES: Nice-sized receiver who showed improvement in his game last year. Good athlete, adjusts to the errant throw, and makes the difficult reception in a crowd or with defenders draped on him. Strong, physically beats down defenders, and gets vertical or out-jumps them to grab the ball. Fluid, made major strides in his route-running last year, and uses his frame to shield away opponents.
NEGATIVES: Lacks soft hands and drops too many catchable throws. Must improve his ball security. Lacks foot-speed and the second gear.
ANALYSIS: Purify is a nice-sized possession wideout with the ability to play at the next level if he keeps his focus and concentration on the field.
