Purdue redshirt junior WR Corey Holmes has missed the last week of practice due to a right hamstring injury.
Holmes took part in Purdue's first practice on August 3, but has been out of action ever since. There is no current timetable for his return, though the Notre Dame transfer does not believe this hamstring issue will sideline him for an extended amount of time. Holmes (6'1/190) is a speedster and while he managed just 11 catches for 96 yards with the Irish last season, he could potentially flourish in HC Jeff Brohm's wide-open offensive attack so long as he maintains his health.

Notre Dame redshirt junior WR Corey Holmes transferred to Purdue as a graduate.

This is a nice get for new HC Jeff Brohm for a few reasons. Firstly, Holmes is a former top-100 overall recruit who will help fortify a Boilermaker receiving depth chart that will be relied upon heavily in Brohm's wide-open scheme. Secondly, Holmes is that rare grad transfer who comes equipped with two years of eligibility remaining. As a grad, of course, he's eligible to play immediately. The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder ran a documented 4.39 40-yard dash last spring and was thought to possibly be Notre Dame's fastest receiver. He may hit the ground running in West Lafayette, possibly playing the Taywan Taylor (98-1,730-17 last year) role for Brohm. Remember: Purdue lost No. 1 WR DeAngelo Yancey to graduation this offseason.

Notre Dame redshirt sophomore WR Corey Holmes can transfer without restrictions.

The speedster hasn't gotten much field time over the past three years, so he's going to opt out. Holmes, a former top-100 recruit, should have plenty of suitors on the open market. Holmes' father David played DB at Syracuse in the 1980s and in the NFL for the Miami Dolphins and Detroit Lions.
