Griffin Alstott has committed to Purdue, the same school where his father Mike Alstott was a star in the early 1990s before a long career as a running back with the Tampa Bay Bucs that led to six Pro Bowl selections.

The younger Alstott, who plays quarterback for his dad at Florida's Northside Christian, announced the news Friday on Twitter.
