GOLD AND BLACK ILLUSTRATED VOLUME 28, ISSUE 1 44 Purdue is losing three of its better defensive players after this season, as linebackers Ja'Whaun Bentley and T.J. McCollum and lineback- er-turned-pass-rusher Danny Eze- chukwu depart. "I want to give it a little bit (before committing), but I'm honestly really happy with Purdue," Craft said. "Ob- viously I just want to kind of explore the process, because I never really got to go through it before, see what it has to offer. But Purdue being this interested right away has kind of caught my eye compared to a lot of other schools." Purdue hit the junior college ranks hard last winter, signing de- fensive end Kai Higgins, offensive tackle Ethan Smart and safety T.J. Jallow mid-year, then wide receivers Isaac Zico and Terry Wright in Feb- ruary, followed by the late addition of defensive tackle Ray Ellis in the spring. Brohm said then that Purdue might remain in the junior college market from here on out, but proba- bly not to the lengths it needed to in the short term to fill urgent person- nel needs. Such needs aren't often solidified in a lasting manner overnight, and so positions like the defensive line, offensive line, wide receiver and linebacker could again get attention in the J.C. ranks. j Bob Rohrman Subaru Buy a Subaru and Keep Indiana Driving.
