Purdue’s run of commitments continued on Sunday with a pledge from New Jersey guard Andre Oben.

The 6-5, 310-pound three-star prospect is the 10th commitment in the Boilermakers’ Class of 2022. He’s also the fifth since Friday, joining Terence Thomas, Roman Pitre, J.P. Deeter and Kentrell Marks. Oben made his official visit to Purdue this weekend.

A product of St Peter’s Prep in Jersey City, N.J., Oben is the second offensive lineman in Purdue’s class, joining Cross Watson.

Oben also held offers from Syracuse, UConn, Tulane, Charlotte, Liberty and Temple, among others.

Oben is the son of former Louisville and NFL offensive lineman Roman Oben, who was a teammate at U of L with Purdue coach Jeff Brohm before being a third-round pick of the Giants in the 1996 NFL draft. Oben played in the NFL from 1996-2207.

Oben has a brother, RJ, who plays defensive end at Wake Forest.
