ANNOUNCEMENT We are thrilled to welcome back @BoilerBall alum @morethanahooper to the Men of Mackey for @thetournament this summer! Jon was a huge piece of our team last year and just wrapped up his first season in Japan. Welcome back JO! #BoilerUp #JonTheBaptist pic.twitter.com/mGXSWMk25I— Men of Mackey (@PurdueTbt) May 28, 2021
Octeus, while only at Purdue for one season, was one of the most beloved players under Coach Matt Painter. It felt like he was with us his entire college career.
Jon played well last year in the bubble for the Men of Mackey in the basketball tournament.
There is not much else to say, he will join Evan Boudreaux and Lewis Jackson as former Boilermaker players joining the Men of Mackey thus far.
I also cannot post anything about Jon Octeus without including this clip, because well, IU sucks.
