WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Jeff Brohm brings two years of experience and a top 25 recruiting class into the 2019 football season. Purdue's 6-7 record in 2018, along with their meltdown of a performance against Auburn in the Music City Bowl are behind them.

Rondale Moore leads a talented class of wide receivers that includes experience in Jared Sparks and Jackson Anthrop, not to mention freshmen TJ Sheffield, Milton Wright and David Bell.

The story out of day one at camp concerned Bell, who did not participate and watched from the sideline in street clothes due to a hamstring injury. Brohm is taking the setback day-by-day, using caution during the season's infancy.

"We think David has big play-making ability, he definitely can stretch the field. He can go up and make catches. I think he has some swagger to him and he knows he can get that done. Unfortunately you know he has a little hamstring issue that we want to make sure we get healed," said Brohm.

"I know he's eager to get back and we're looking forward to getting him on the field. We've been going at a slow conservative pace and we'll probably keep doing that."

"I mean it's getting better day-by-day, but yeah it was very difficult to watch, you know hopefully I get back out there soon," said Bell.

Purdue kicks off the season August 30 at Nevada.
