Story is here.
Not a catastrophic loss for the Boilers, but he was definitely good prospect. It’s kind of a puzzling transfer, too, seeing how Moore and Hummel were AAU teammates and knew each other well before they stepped on the Purdue campus. He also says that he’s on good terms with the program. Maybe he doesn’t want to sit behind Hummel for 4 years? Maybe he didn’t like Purdue, outside of the basketball program? We can only speculate. It also seems that Painter hasn’t gone a season without a transfer (Chris Lutz last year).
It opens up a third scholarship for Painter. Unless there’s a good high school prospect that hasn’t committed yet, I’d expect him to reel in a Juco big man in the next month or two.
