I posted a comment on Hammer and Rails about Hollowell's interest in Purdue a few weeks ago. This article in the "IU"star confirms(indirectly) what I was told.
1. Hollowell going to IU is very unlikely now....even though they quoted him as saying IU was still one of his favorites
As most of us know by now, that is a very political statement.
2. Ohio St is still a major player in his recruitment.
3. Purdue IS definitely in the game now...where they were not before. Hollowell is very interested in Purdue but while they have made a push for him....it hasn't been major.
I haven't had the chance to see him play in person.....I have been told that while he is a stud....he tends to plays lazy in spurts....May be why coach Painter hasn't put the full-court press on him.
