Pun intended and implied . Isaac Haas all 7'2 inches of him along with his family are visiting West Lafayette this weekend . For those of you who don't follow Isaac and his mother Rachel on twitter . let me fill you in they are excited to start their Official visits . We should be excited that they have chose us as their first stop . I know this is the one thing every coach pushes for is to be first . And generally speaking if the recruit puts you as his first it is because you are his first choice . I really like both of them . Rachel is really funny she pokes fun at her rather large offspring . She also stands up for the young men and the stress that they are under from coaches, fans and damn near everyone they come in contact with . Everyone wants something from these young men including myself . If we are going to sign Haas we will need to be what is best for him . No shinny penny is going to turn his head ( she wont allow it ). Our coaching staff will need to show them how we can further his game . Our University must show how a education from Purdue can benefit him . And our current players need to be honest with him about what he is to expect . I respect our program and our staff will be up for it . I would be more than shocked if he commits before taking at least a couple more visits . I really want Haas we would be great for each other . I truly believe the guy can transform into an NBA player the way Hammons and Simpson have . He could help us get to a few finial fours along the way . Yes he is rated about the same as Hammons at this point in their lives . And yes I know about all the others who will be on campus this weekend but Haas IMO is the one we must have . For what it is worth I expect we will sign him . Boiler Up !
