Westminster resident and standout McDonogh linebacker Wyatt Cook has committed to Purdue, Cook announced on Twitter on Tuesday. Cook, a rising senior, also had offers from Maryland and Virginia, but he said the offer was rescinded by Maryland before his recruiting visit to Purdue because the Terps already had two commitments at linebacker: Gus Little and Brett Zanotto. However, even if the Maryland offer were still on the table, Cook said he would have chosen the Boilermakers over his hometown school.

Purdue quarterback Robert Marve will miss the rest of the season after tearing the ACL in his left knee in the first quarter of the Boilermakers' 31-20 loss to Toledo on Saturday. Marve tore the same ACL last summer, although he couldn't have played last season because of NCAA transfer rules after going to Purdue from Miami (Fla.). The junior tweaked the knee Sept. 18 but returned a week later. • NFL agent Gary Wichard and former North Carolina assistant John Blake , at the center of an ongoing NCAA investigation, have been tied to multiple financial transactions, according to Yahoo Sports.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The talent scouts who grade high school football prospects track their picks through college and into the NFL. The touts make pronouncements about their ability to gaze into the future, but did any project Drew Brees as a Heisman Trophy candidate and a first-round draft choice four years ago? "How hot a commodity was I?" Brees said in early August, echoing a question. "I was cold." Purdue wants its first Big Ten title since 1967, and Brees is ready for one last season of outrageous passing statistics.

N.C. State could surprise David Teel Newport News Daily Press The lowest seed I see reaching New Orleans is Marquette. But the Golden Eagles are the West's No. 3 and the Big East regular-season runner-up, hardly what you'd consider a interloper. So the true low seed with the best chance? North Carolina State, the Midwest's No. 11. Wolfpack point guard Lorenzo Brown is better than most realize, and if they stay out of foul trouble, C.J. Leslie and Richard Howell are a load inside.

CHICAGO -- Accusations of research misconduct have roiled the school of nuclear engineering at Purdue University over the past year, stemming from one professor's claims to have discovered a potential source of cheap energy through tabletop nuclear fusion. The target of those allegations was exonerated last week in an academic report. But the inquiry's end is unlikely to quell the rivalries and professional trash-talking spurred by Purdue engineering professor Rusi Taleyarkhan's work. Taleyarkhan, who led the research in question at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, was co-author of a 2002 paper purporting to show "bubble fusion" brought about by intense implosions of bubbles in a liquid bombarded with sound waves.

RICHMOND, Va. -- People who have followed Purdue women's basketball center Leslie Johnson have given her the nickname "Baby Bark."And by the irrepressible freshman's reckoning, the comparisons between herself and Phoenix Suns star Charles Barkley are apt, right down to the observation that both are, as was said of Barkley in college, round mounds of rebounds."
