2016 Purdue Basketball Recruiting: Carsen Edwards Commits

New, 78 comments

We have a point guard!

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

Purdue has its first basketball commitment for the 2016 class (again)! We have been searching for a point guard since C.J. Walker decommitted and now we have him. It is Carsen Edwards from Texas:

Carsen is a three-star commitment according to ESPN and a three-star prospect according to Rivals. He is listed as a smaller point guard at 6' 175, but he plays big in his native Houston, Texas. Baylor, Virginia Tech, and Vanderbilt were among the teams that have offered him.

Here is a highlight reel.

It will be interesting to see how he fits in. It lookslike (on paper) he will back up P.J. Thompson for two years, while Grant Weatherford is still a factor, so we shall see. It definitely gives Purdue some options.

Finally, we have your updated scholarship grid:
