It came as no surprise when Emmanuel Dowuona announced he would be entering the NCAA Transfer Portal after three years with the Boilermakers. Now, the redshirt sophomore has decided to take his talents to play for the Tigers of Tennessee State per Eric Woodyard on Twitter.
Dowuona joins Aaron Wheeler as the two Boilermakers to find new homes this off-season after Wheeler announced his commitment to St. John’s earlier this month.
This was just an unfortunate set of circumstances for Dowuona, who never had the chance to get going as a result of the players in front of him and missed all of last season. In his three seasons with the Boilermakers, he played in just 9 games scoring 12 total points and grabbing 8 rebounds.
Out of high school, he was a four-star recruit and had some very impressive offers for someone that was a raw talent. Purdue won the battle over schools such as Tennessee, Clemson, UConn, Miami, Rutgers, and more. The talent was there, but the opportunities did not arise as he would have hoped.
Good luck to Emmanuel in this new chapter of his career, Purdue fans want nothing but the best for this young man going forward. Boiler Up!
