Purdue Basketball: Evan Boudreaux Commits!

Purdue gets a big time commitment from a transfer.

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-East Regional-Purdue vs Texas Tech Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

The question right after we were defeated in the Sweet 16 was, who replaces utility man Vince Edwards?

We knew Haarms would take over for Haas, Cline for Mathias and Nojel or Carsen as the starting point guard.

Most thought Aaron Wheeler would slide in, but then there were depth concerns, rebounding concerns, scoring concerns.

A lot of that can go away now, thank you Louisville.

Chris Mack the former Xavier Coach is headed to Louisville, many thought Evan would follow, that is not happening, as he is now a Boilermaker.

Let’s not hide this either - he is an impact player from the moment he steps foot on Campus.

The former Dartmouth player is dominant, this past season he has worked out and gotten better as a player with private workouts, while taking the year off to test the transfer market - everyone wanted him.

At Dartmouth, in 54 games, he averaged 17.6 points per game, 9.5 rebounds per game on 44% from the field, and 37% from three. I cannot state enough how big of a get this is for Coach Painter’s transition from losing the four seniors.

It appears Evan wants to win and get to the NCAA Tournament, we can get you there, Evan with your help. Welcome to West Lafayette. Prepare for a fan base to support you, cheer you on and give you sell out crowds.

It is a great day to be a Boilermaker.
