Matt Painter got a good one here. Ethan Morton is officially a Boilermaker and he has put up some very good numbers in his most recent season.

Morton is listed as a 6’5” 180 pound guard. He is the #74 recruit according to Rivals, #77 according to 247, and #66 according to ESPN. Here is his highlight tape:
I do like the prospects fo him gelling together in the same backcourt with Jaden Ivey over four years. They should compliment each other extremely well. By the time he gets to Purdue I see him splitting minutes with Sasha Stefanovich at the 2 or 3 depending on lineups. He could also be more of a distributor than a shooter.
Morton does need to work on his shooting, however. He struggled over the summer, and that caused his Rivals rating to drop a bit outside of the top 50 nationally. I am sure he will work on it, however, as he has some time.
