Scourton was named second team All-Big Ten after leading the conference in sacks and finishing second with 15 tackles for loss.

After two seasons at Purdue, it appears Scourton will seek a new destination. He appeared in 25 games for the Boilermakers, totaling 72 tackles, 17 tackles for loss and 12 sacks.

The Bryan, Texas, native was a four-star recruit as part of the class of 2022. Standing 6-foot-4 and weighing 280 pounds, Scourton will bring a new level of physicality to whichever program he lands next.
