This seems to be a surprising move, as it seemed as if Monteroso was climbing the depth chart after an extremely strong spring game. Following the spring game, Travis even posted Monteroso as a "Plus", meaning he played outstanding. On that day, Monteroso posted a line of three catches for 93 yards. This includes hauling in a 44 yard touchdown pass. He was also being used in the return game that day, having racked up 75 yards on four kickoff returns.
While he hadn't produced much during his Purdue career to date, I was pulling for him to take over Anthrop's role this coming season as the primary slot receiver. Now we will sit here and ponder who will be our next slot receiver, until we get a depth chart later this summer.
Wherever you end up chasing your basketball career at Dan, the guys at Hammer & Rails wish you the best. Thanks for being a Boilermaker!
