Brothers Tyler, Mike and Adam Replogle were standout defensive players at Centerville High School.

This led to the three committing to Indiana to play football — Tyler and Mike as linebackers, Adam as a defensive lineman. Tyler has graduated, but Adam and Mike are still with the school.

Little brother Jake Replogle — a senior-to-be at Centerville — broke the Hoosier streak with a commitment to Big Ten rival Purdue on Thursday.

“They’ve been pretty good about it,” Jake Replogle said. “They support me 100 percent and they want what is best for me. They don’t care what college I go to. As long as I like it, they will like it.”

Replogle is 6-foot-5, 245 pounds and has benefited from a junior-year growth spurt. He played last fall at 6-foot-2, 205 pounds. He is going to Purdue as an end, but the Boilermakers hope he’ll find a home at defensive tackle.

In 2011, he had 42 tackles, 13 for a loss, and six quarterback sacks for a Centerville team that was 7-4 overall and 5-0 in the Greater Western Ohio Conference. Jake has been a standout for a family that has a long tradition at Centerville.

“All four of those brothers are so similar,” said Centerville coach Ron Ullery. “There is not a thing to not like about them. They play with a tremendous motor, they are extremely intense and they are all throwback, blue-collar football players and good people. It’s too bad Jake is the last one. I think I’ll ask them to adopt some kids.” Replogle had offers from Navy, Marshall and several Mid-American Conference schools. But his dream was to play Big Ten football.

“That’s the goal I set for myself,” Replogle said. “They have a couple new defensive coaches I met and was impressed with. The football program I’m very impressed with.”

He becomes the latest Centerville lineman to either commit or currently play at a Big Ten or BCS school. The list includes brothers Mike and Adam at Indiana, Evan Lisle (Ohio State), Brant Gressel (Iowa), Benny McGowan (Michigan State), Ifeadi Odenigbo (Northwestern), Michael Bennett (Ohio State) and Jake Feldmeyer (Illinois). Another former Centerville lineman, Kyle Rose, plays at West Virginia.

“You don’t go to a BCS school or the Big Ten and play on talent alone,” Ullery said. “You better have tremendous work ethic and play really hard.”
