Date:

Purdue WR DeAngelo Yancey will visit the Texans in mid-April.

This will be six visits for Yancey, which is quite a feat for a non-Combine receiver. Yancey impressed during East-West Shrine week and could absolutely draw a draftable grade.
Mar 27 - 8:48 AM

Purdue WR DeAngelo Yancey is scheduled to visit the Bengals in April.

Yancey has visits with the Seahawks, Titans, Chargers and Packers on his schedule. The non-Combine invite will get looks from NFL teams on the third day. The Bengals need to add another receiver in this class.
Mar 22 - 9:33 AM

Purdue WR DeAngelo Yancey is scheduled to visit the Packers in April.

Yancey has or will visit the Chargers, Titans, Seahawks and now Packers. That is a good list for a non-Combine receiver. Yancey impressed at the East-West Shrine game, displayed great athleticism at the school's pro day and has a strong chance of being drafted in the later rounds.

Wake Forest graduate DB Josh Okonye transferred to Purdue.

Okonye did not start a game during his time with the Demon Deacons, but he did appear in 37 games over the course of his career. This past season, the 6-foot, 200-pounder recorded 36 tackles and three passes defended in 10 contests. As a graduate transfer, he will be eligible to play immediately with his new Boilermaker crew.

Purdue has expelled three unnamed players following an investigation into an alleged sexual assault.

Four players were implicated in a possible sexual assault back in October. The players were allowed to continue taking classes, but removed from the team. While no charges have been filed in that case, Purdue's Administrative Board has further investigated the matter and decided on expulsions for three of the four in question. This according to Mario Massillamany, who represents the accusers in the case. In a statement, Purdue said that federal privacy laws prevent them from commenting on their investigation.

Purdue WR DeAngelo Yancey will visit the Chargers next week and has a private workout scheduled with the Titans.

That means Yancey has a workout and visit with the Titans in his planner. Yancey is receiving a good amount of interest despite not receiving a Combine invite. He has a strong chance of getting drafted, but if not expect a few of these teams to be in the running for his services as an undrafted free agent.
Mar 15 - 9:12 AM

Purdue WR DeAngelo Yancey is set to visit the Seahawks and Titans prior to the draft.

Yancey is arguably the top non-Combine receiver in the class, but receivers who were not invited to Indianapolis face a long trend of failure in the NFL. Yancey tested like a great athlete and put together a solid East-West Shrine week.
Mar 13 - 9:29 AM

Purdue WR DeAngelo Yancey ran the 40-yard dash in 4.46 seconds at the school's pro day on Tuesday.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline passes along that several squads clocked Yancey even faster than that, in the "mid-to-upper 4.3's." In addition to the impressive run, the wideout also recorded a healthy bench press (21 reps), vertical jump (36 inches) and broad jump (10-foot-1). Pauline notes that the WR coaches for the Vikings, Colts, Steelers and Lions were all on-hand to watch Yancey. This past season, he caught 49 passes for 951 yards and 10 touchdowns. He will be in the Day 3 discussion come April. We agree with Pauline's assertion that Yancey deserved an invitation to the Combine.

Former Western Kentucky LB T.J. McCollum transferred to Purdue as a graduate.

McCollum is eligible to play for the Boilermakers in 2017, the linebacker’s final season of eligibility. McCollum started 26 games for WKU after transferring over from UAB after the 2014 season when that program temporarily closed down. The 6-foot-3, 240-pounder was a team captain for the Hilltoppers.
Feb 14 - 2:45 PM

Western Kentucky graduate LB T.J. McCollum will transfer.

McCollum has a few restrictions placed on his transfer, namely that he cannot join another Conference USA squad, nor any of the non-conference teams that Western Kentucky will play in 2017. The programs which fall into the latter category are Illinois, Eastern Kentucky, Ball State and Vanderbilt. The 6-foot-3, 240-pounder initially joined the Hilltoppers as a transfer from UAB following the close of the 2014 season. During the past campaign, McCollum registered 85 tackles (4.0 for loss), three passes defensed and a forced fumble in 11 games.

Purdue signed four-star JUCO CB T.J. Jallow.

Jallow was the school's top JUCO import and one of its best recruits of the 2017 cycle overall. "Jallow is a good looking kid. Tall corners are unique to say the least, especially ones with feet and hips," noted ESPN's scouting report. "We would be surprised if he is not an immediate impact/starter once at the next level."

Purdue WR DeAngelo Yancey accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

Yancey is coming off his best season, having logged a 49-951-10 line for the Boilermakers. CBS ranks him as the No. 356 prospect in the class and believes he'll probably go undrafted.

ESPN's Brian Bennett writes that Purdue redshirt sophomore QB David Blough possesses "all the tools" to succeed under new HC Jeff Brohm.

Purdue hired Brohm away from Western Kentucky on Monday. Bennett loves the fit between quarterback and coach, here, writing that Brohm is an "outstanding developer of quarterback talent," one who should be able to help Blough shore up some of his inconsistencies. The 6-foot-1, 202-pound redshirt sophomore led the Big Ten in both passing yardage (3,352) and touchdowns (25) this season, but that strong touchdown mark was somewhat offset by Blough's tendency to turn the ball over. He threw 21 interceptions in 12 games.

Western Kentucky coach Jeff Brohm will be Purdue's next head coach, according to Pat Forde of Yahoo.

Brohm's brother and offensive coordinator Brian Brohm will join him. Purdue and Les Miles had been a popular pairing for some time, but national reports recently stated the connection would not happen. In just a few days, Brohm's name was listed with plenty of programs. Purdue fans should be excited about the hire, as Brohm as put together consistent offenses since taking over and put together a 15-1 conference record over the last two seasons.

ESPN's Adam Rittenberg reports that Western Kentucky's Jeff Brohm is expected to be the leading candidate to land the Cincinnati head coaching opening.

Rittenberg notes that Cincy will have to fend off two Power 5 schools, Purdue and Baylor, for Brohm's services -- assuming the coach decides to relocate at all (he could have last winter and didn't). Rittenberg goes on to write that Air Force coach Troy Calhoun and Ohio State defensive coordinator Luke Fickell are also candidates for the Bearcats, while Buckeyes assistant Kerry Coombs "could get a look as he has extensive roots in the Cincinnati area."
