Atlantic DB Brisly Estime commits to Purdue, for now 

By Matt Porter

Update: Late Friday afternoon, Brisly Estime decommitted from Purdue, saying the school wanted him to visit before he made his decision.

It may not end up this way come signing day, but for now, Atlantic cornerback Brisly Estime is headed to Purdue.

Estime (5-10, 180) is a dynamic cover corner, kick returner and punt returner who impressed in Atlantic’s 14-0 win over Glades Central. He said Thursday he could see himself at Purdue, but he’s still listening to other programs.

“I tell everyone, I’m open to every school,” Estime said.

Any school recruiting Estime will only have three contests this fall to watch him. He passes Florida’s high school participation age limit of 19 years, 9 months in September, leaving him eligible to compete in Atlantic’s kickoff classic against Deerfield Beach, its season opener against American Heritage and its Week 2 game against Boca Raton.

Estime will graduate in May with the 2013 senior class. By then, he might have traded his Boilermakers hat for something else.

He said he likes Purdue more than his other finalists, which included Cincinnati, Bowling Green and Georgia State. But he would reconsider if Miami, his favorite school, came calling. Estime was named MVP at a recent UM camp and believes the ‘Canes are still recruiting him.

If he sticks with Purdue, he says he would play corner and special teams.

“Purdue was the school I liked more than the other schools,” Estime said. “I like that they’re Big Ten, I like the facilities and I like how they spoke to me.”

Of course, other schools might talk even sweeter.
