Well, yesterday morning Malik announced he was going to make his decision that day.
He is headed to Texas Tech.
Malik was rated a 3* by most recruiting sites and had great athleticism and defensive skills. What he lacked was the ability to be super effective on offense. He has a pretty high ceiling and should do well at Texas Tech.
I really do think he wanted to be at Purdue. But, was playing the waiting game with us. Will Biggie go pro or not? If he gave us a verbal, then Biggie decided to come back he would be out and looking for an opportunity in almost June, which is just too late. I don’t blame him for going elsewhere.
If Biggie does stay in the draft, I am starting to think his scholarship will either go to a 5th year guy (Trevor Thompson Please) or Coach Painter will just save it for the 2018 class that is absolutely loaded.
Best of luck, Malik!
