Purdue losing defensive end to NCAA transfer portal
A Purdue defensive end has decided to enter his name in the NCAA transfer portal.
Over the weekend, sophomore defensive end Willie Lane announced his decision to enter his name in the transfer database and explore his options outside of West Lafayette. He spent two years with the Boilermakers and was a member of the team’s 2018 recruiting class.
“I had an amazing two years at Purdue University, and I will forever be grateful for the Boiler community and all they have done to further me in my education, football and life,” Lane wrote on Twitter. “With that being said, I have entered my name in the transfer portal and reopened my recruitment. I’m excited to see what the future holds.”

Lane came to Purdue as a three-star prospect out of Winter Haven, Florida. In his senior year at the high school level, Lane registered 35 stops, eight tackles for loss and two sacks.
Once he arrived at Purdue, Lane was able to carve out some playing time. He appeared in three games for the Boilermakers during the 2018 season, and recorded his only tackle at Purdue against Boston College. Lane did not play in any games during the 2019 season.
Purdue finished last year with a 4-8 record.
