  04/20/20 - QB Austin BurtonrSr/2023, Purdue

  Purdue's quarterback room doesn't feature the experience it's had in the past with David Blough and Elijah Sindelar. Jeff Brohm has taken a step to add a veteran presence to the group. It comes in the form of Austin Burton, who told the Journal & Courier on Monday he plans to transfer to join Brohm's program after three seasons at UCLA. Burton will graduate in July before coming to West Lafayette where he'll have two years of eligibility. Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports! first reported the news of Burton transferring to Purdue. While the addition of a graduate transfer nearly always points to immediate playing time, Burton said that's not the case.

If Burton plays, he'll have to win the job competing against Jack Plummer and Aidan O'Connell. "Nothing is promised," Burton said from his home in Newton, Massachusetts. "It is just an opportunity to get the chance to be the starter. It's earned. There's going to be a lot of competition, which I love, and that's how it should be. Anywhere you go, no matter who you are, you have to come in, compete and earn it." Plummer and O'Connell appeared in a combined 15 games last season after Sindelar suffered a concussion and shoulder injury during the first month. Plummer made his first start against Texas Christian; O'Connell started his first game at Northwestern in November after Plummer broke his ankle against Nebraska. - Journal and Courier
