WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - After a week off for spring break, the Boilermakers returned to the field. All three practices were held inside Mollenkopf. A handful of players also visited Aster Place to go to prom with the residents Tuesday. Below are highlights from Monday, Wednesday and Friday's practices, photos from prom, a bonus video from as special spring break trip, as well as the remaining schedule for the spring. All practices are open to the public and begin around 3:30 p.m. unless noted.


Co-offensive coordinator/receivers coach JaMarcus Shephard likes the effort out of his position group, but wants them to finish the spring strong. He spoke with the media after practice about what he has seen this spring.

Sophomore Jared Sparks underwent offseason surgery to repair his ankle and spoke publicly for the first time about how his rehab and recovery is going. After splitting time between quarterback and receiver last season, he has made a permanent move to the latter going forward.



Defensive line coach Reggie Johnson lost a lot of talent from last season to graduation, but has seen growth from his group this spring.

After seeing limited action last season, junior Kai Higgins has a renewed respect for the effort and passion it takes to be elite on the field. He is ready to take on a bigger role in his second season at Purdue.

In just two seasons, junior Lorenzo Neal has gone from being a raw true freshman to the most experienced player in his position group. He shared his thoughts on his growth and his teammates.


Offensive line coach Dale Williams, who is missing a handful of guys due to injury, is working on individual technique with his group this spring. He spoke with the media after Friday's practice about the first three weeks of spring ball.
