Bullough Update: 

For the second straight day, Max Bullough declined interviews in St. Petersburg at the East-West Shrine game. After Tuesday’s practice, Bullough chatted with a couple of NFL scouts and then was personally escorted off the field … the first player to leave.

I spoke to Harold Richardson, the Shrine game’s executive director, and he gave me some more insight on his decision to invite Bullough. “I spoke to Mark Dantonio and he told me Max made a mistake. He gave me no indication it was a character issue. (Dantonio said) ‘We are going to welcome him to our (MSU) banquet and we are going to be PROUD to have him at our banquet.'” Richardson added, “That’s all I needed to hear.”

For more analysis on how Bullough performed today, you can catch BTN’s Derek Rackley and former NFL scout Russ Lande’s take on The Finale tonight.

Gallon accepts invite to combine: 

Chatted with Michigan’s Jeremy Gallon today as well. Gallon confirmed to me that he has accepted an invite to the combine. From now until the combine, Gallon said he is going to work on his 40 time mostly … trying to get it under 4.5.

Coincidentally, he is training in Indianapolis, and when I asked him what he proved his senior year at Michigan? “Size don’t matter.”

Allen looking to prove: 

Spent a few minutes talking to Purdue’s Ricardo Allen. Many analysts believe he could be a slot corner in the NFL. He told me he is not opposed to being drafted as that, “I will do anything they tell me to do, but I think I can show my worth in other ways once I get on a team.”

Enunwa leaves practice: 

Nebraska WR Quincy Enunwa participated in the first half of practice and then left. Russ Lande confirmed Enunwa had a hand injury, and his return the rest of the week is questionable.
