This is my version without regards to rankings . Top player in this class is Dakota Mathias kid is smart and a complete player Painter said of him" He may have the highest BB iq of any player I have ever signed . He could help us now ." What Mathias does well is pass he finds the open player many more times than not . He shoots better than anyone we have on our team now . For Painter to say he could play now is all I need to rank him first . Next is Isaac Haas you really have to dig to find Video on him . Sure his size is what we all fell in love with . GBI video on him shows his strengths are protecting the rim . With the new rules our guards cannot stop the drives to the basket we need a shot blocker . His 4.0 GPA will serve him well in game prep . He has great hands and moves his feat better than most bigs . Setting picks is something he prides himself on . This guy has a team first view of the game . By all accounts he is a fun loving family guy . Who talks to all whom he comes in contact with . He is the first to give props to someone other than himself . For those who may have missed Painters version of how we landed him . He called Painter and said he wasn't going to sign with WF . Painter advised him to stick with his commitment . The next day Haas called UAB and scheduled an official visit . Painter then called him and was informed WF was not an option . He then got on a plane and arrived in Hokes Bluff minutes before UAB got to his hs gym . Painter spent 20-30 minutes talking to him while the UAB head coach and top asst. sat outside the door and waited . Painter then returned home with no clue he would land him . The next day he went to UAB and Sunday morning very early he called to say he was coming to Purdue . The whole thing worked out well for us . He will be a great player for us on and off the court . Vince Edwards we all know what he brings to table . His rebounding and unselfish style will serve him well . Painter calls him a big skilled Guard who will play the 4 . I expect him to lead us in rebounding 3 out of his 4 years . I like everything about his game . Jaquil Taylor is a shot blocking machine . Painter said he is a diamond in the rough . He will allow us to match up well with the smaller quick teams . He comes from a basketball family and by all accounts a close well rounded family . Many of you may not know but he can shoot from the three . He runs the court with a sense of purpose that would make Ronnie feel challenged . Now at 6'10 his doctor told him he is not done growing . What I love about him is he and his entire family treated the Purdue offer as though they had won the lottery . He is soooooo proud to be a Boilermaker it makes me proud to be a fan . IMO all four will help us and along with what we already have a B1G Ten championship is only a year away . BOILER UP !
