Midland Legacy QB Marcos Davila signs with Purdue Boilermakers
Midland Legacy High senior Marcos Davila, called one of the best football players “to ever don the maroon and white” by his school district, signed a Letter of Intent to play for the Purdue Boilermakers on Wednesday, which was Early National Signing Day.
Davila was emotional at the signing, having lost his grandfather mid-season.
“I really tried to dedicate that season to him,” he stated at the event, as captured by media cameras. “I gave everything I could.”

This past season, Davila, a 4-star recruit who is ranked the 15th best QB in the nation by 247Sports, racked up 30 touchdowns and 3,303 yards on 219-of-339 passing, averaging 254.1 yards per game and 16.8 yards per completion, according to stats posted by his new team, the Boilermakers.
The 6-3, 230-pound QB started three seasons for Midland Legacy and finished with school records in TD passes (93) and passing yards (9,101). He led the Rebels to Texas District 2-6A titles in all three seasons. He was District 2-6A Offensive MVP in his final two seasons.
Such achievements are exciting Boilermaker fans. The publication BoilerUpload called Davila “one of the crown jewels of Purdue’s 2024 recruiting class.”
Davila told the publication that his relationship with the Boilermaker coaches led him to choosing Purdue over a lenghty list of other schools.
“They had been recruiting me for a while and then when I visited I really loved the feeling I had there,” Davila said.
