Trinity running back Dalyn Dawkins announced Monday night that he’ll play for the Purdue Boilermakers. 

The 5-foot-9 Dawkins led Trinity to three straight Class 6-A state titles, including an undefeated season as a junior.

As a senior, Dawkins powered his way for 1,479 yards on the ground and 18 touchdowns. He also caught 38 passes for 367 yards and five TDs.

Ball State, Cincinnati, Illinois, Western Kentucky and Colorado State offered Dawkins a scholarship. Besides Purdue, Colorado State was the only other school Dawkins looked at.

Dawkins has been clocked at 4.50 seconds in the 40-yard dash and has bench-pressed 240 pounds.
