NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Purdue vs Arkansas Little Rock Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Here is the announcement:

And now, we can have the EVERYBODY PANIC thread for Purdue basketball recruiting. the next big announcement appears to be scheduled for later this week when Xavier Tillman chooses between Purdue, Michigan State, and Marquette. Purdue is also still waiting on Nojel Eastern as well.

This is starting to become a major concern. In fact, it was a major concern when Purdue could not get any of the top four recruits that reside within the state of Indiana. Now it is simply running out of players it has offered and there are a lot of scholarships to go around for the 2017 class, too.

I have no idea what happens if Purdue does not get Tillman and Eastern, but it seems to have the best shot with Eastern. Several other players have visited and have been offered, but no one has officially moved as of yet.

At this rate Purdue might have trouble filling a roster in 2017-18.
