Since most of college basketball season is done the full list of transfers to and from schools is becoming more complete. Almost everyone except a Fifth year graduate transfer would have to sit out the entire 2014-15 season if they came to Purdue, but there is now a larger list of players that will graduate and be immediately eligible, which is something coach painter may do again. Purdue has four scholarships available of the next two seasons, so a one-year transfer helps the most without clouding the 2015 recruiting class.
Of another note, this lists Purdue as one of four possible destinations for Virginia Tech's Trevor Thompson, who would have to sit out next season.
Here is the of all list of all transfers as currently known, and I have a closer look at the graduting guys that will be immediately eligible:
Jordan Allen - Hofstra - He is a 6'6" forward that would graduate and have two years left, but only averaged 6.6 points and 4.8 rebounds per game.
D.J. Brown - San Jose State - Could be a stopgap solution at the point until P.J. Thompson is ready. Averaged 3.7 assists in 2012-13 and shot over 30% from three.
Ian Chiles - IUPUI - Another possible guard who averaged 15.8 points and almost two assists for an awful IUPUI team. Could become more of a distributor since he would not have to handle the scoring load.
Bryce Dejean-Jones - UNLV - This would be an interesting pickup. Purdue would be his third stop after playing a year at USC and two at UNLV. He was a 6'5" guard/forward that averaged 13.6 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 3 assists for the Runnin' Rebels. He has shot a respectable 34% from long range in his career too.
Chad Donley - Liberty - Did virtually nothing for a bad Big South team.
Jeylani Dublin - Longwood - Averaged 10.4 points and 4.2 rebounds while shooting 55% for Longwood as a 6'6" forward.
Austin Etherington - Indiana - Now THIS would be funny, as the player most responsible for bringing baby Jesus to Bloomington could turn Judas. It's not happening even though he has two years left.
Chris Evans - Sacred Heart - Here is a decent player that averaged 11.3 points per game and about two assists before missing the last six games. Again though, Sacred Heart was awful.
Spencer Llewellyn - Pacific - Did nothing for Pacific, who is in the CIT final.
Sommy Ogukwe - Liberty - Somehow did less for Liberty than Donley above.
M.J. Rhett - Tennessee State - The 6'8" power forward averaged 10.9 points, 9.1 rebounds, and shot over 54% from the floor for a Tennessee State team that was a meager 5-25.
K.C. Ross-Miller - New Mexico State - This would be a good one. He was a point guard on an NCAA team that averaged 8.3 points and 3.5assists while shooting 40% from three before missing the last six games because of a suspension in that ugly Utah Valley-NMSU brawl.
