first_imgUnless you have been out of the state or just simply not listening, you should know that IU basketball has received a commitment from Romeo Langford of New Albany.  It is not clear what Langford’s overall commitment is, but many fear it will be a “one and done” situation.  The new NCAA proposal, if passed, will not take effect until next year requiring a longer commitment for recruits.Meanwhile, at Purdue, head football Coach Brohm was given a contract extension.  Several reasons were given for this!  According to the Indianapolis Star, this year Brohm will receive 3.8 million and it will go up from there until it expires in 2024.  One reason was the renewed interest by the fan base and alumni and the energy developed on the Purdue campus.  Purdue had only won 9 games in 4 years before Brohm was given the job.  He not only won 7 games last year, but he got a bowl win as well.last_img read more

This is another step forward for him again, which we think he can take.”Leverock, who has captained Bermuda in their last two outings in the CONCACAF Nations League qualifiers, succeeding UK-based winger Reggie Lambe, made 34 appearances and scored eight goals for Narva Trans.Leverock has previously played for English non-League sides Ilkeston, Staines Town and Leatherhead.last_img read more
