Brown’s EJ Perry was the only Ivy League participant at the annual NFL Combine which concluded on Monday. Perry ran the second fastest 40-yard dash time of any quarterback with a time of 4.65 seconds. Perry’s 3-cone drill and short shuttle times were the fastest among all signal callers. NFL Analyst Lance Zierlein noted that Perry “has average size and arm strength but below-average mechanics and consistency as a passer.” Zierlein sees Perry’s upside as a potential Taysom Hill-like player that poses a legitimate threat as a ball carrier.

Foye Oluokun finished the 2021 NFL regular season as the leader in total tackles with 192 stops. Now that Oluokun’s initial contract has expired, the Falcons will have the difficult decision of whether to re-sign their defensive captain or let him test the open waters of free agency where he could command a speculated $10 million annually. That could bring a whole new meaning to Yale’s 4 for 40 mantra!

The Ivy League Men’s Basketball Tournament will take place this Saturday and Sunday at Harvard.

Good luck Coach Jones, beat those Quakers and Tigers!
