It is finally game week! We will get into our game week posts later today, but we still have some players to countdown here.

Myles Norwood - So.

Arlington, TX (Grace Prep)

6' 170 pounds

Wide Receiver

2015 Projection: Contributor at wide receiver

Norwood got a small taste of college football last season after redshirting in 2013. He played in 11 games on special teams and due to injuries he was in the receiver rotation by the end of the year. He did not have a catch, but he had a pair of special teams tackles. His final year of high school was a productive one with 1,010 yards and 17 TDs on only 47 receptions. His is a big play threat that could eventually find a home as a return man.

Evyn Cooper - Fr.

Buford, GA (Buford HS)

6'2", 195 pounds

Cornerback

2015 Projection: contributor at cornerback

The coaches this fall have had a lot of positive things to say about Cooper, who has impressed with his athleticism as a true freshman. He is huge as a 6'2" corner, so a move to safety could happen. He was a three-star recruit in his native Georgia and played both ways. As a running back he had over 1,300 yards rushing and 15 touchdowns in his last two years. He is expected to play defense at Purdue and is one of our more promising defensive back candidates.
