The Plant High School (Tampa, FL) product was highly sought after picking up offers from several other top programs in the country including Ohio State, Georgia, Penn State, and LSU.

Putnam a 6’3 285-pound lineman is a strong and physical player who can move people off the ball, especially in the run game. He should be an added boost for Robbie Caldwell and company.
