Kicker/punter Austin McGehee (Pine Bluff, Ark./Pine Bluff) committed on Friday to play in the Big Ten for Purdue.
McGehee's decision, confirmed by multiple reports, was announced on Twitter:

Arkansas and Houston also recruited the 6-foot-1, 200-pound prospect. McGehee will be included in ESPN RecruitingNation's soon-to-be-released kicker rankings.
The Boilermakers have six pledges for 2014. Three-star outside linebacker Brandon Garner (Arlington, Texas/Timberview), who gave Purdue a verbal in January, is no longer listed as a commitment.
