Jeff Brohm is entering his first season as the head coach of Purdue, and he has the tough task of rebuilding the program from the bottom of the Big 10.
Brohm has been very active in pursuing graduate transfers who can play immediately, and he just landed his fifth graduate transfer for the 2017 season.
Offensive guard Shane Evans announced he is transferring to Purdue from Northern Illinois.
Evans graduated from Northern Illinois in three years, and he will have two years of eligibility remaining for the Boilermakers.
Evans started 18 games in two seasons for the Huskies, and he is listed at 6’4, 302 pounds. Evans was an academic All-MAC selection.
Brohm has also landed graduate transfers T.J. McCollum, Josh Okonye, Dave Steinmetz, and Corey Holmes since taking over as head coach.
Brohm was 30-10 in three seasons at Western Kentucky. Purdue hasn’t had a winning season since 2011, and they’ve won nine games combined in the last four seasons.
