PURDUE MENS BASKETBALL RECRUITING:
Coaches looking to 1999 and 2000 classes




Date: 9/02/1997

    Having recruits verballed for all the available scholarships that will be available for the 98-99 season, the spring and summer has allowed the coaching staff to make a strong push for what are this years high school sophmore and junior classes while the other schools spend time signing the seniors. The state of Indiana is set to have two outstanding graduating classes back to back in the classes of 1999 and 2000. Here's a preview of the nationally ranked kids from those classes at this point, who will be chased by a host of major programs...
    
    Player           Size  School                Class
    Carlton Baker    6'6   East Chicago Central    99
    Martin Brothers  6'7   Indianapolis Arlington  99
    Jason Gardner    5'10  Indy North Central      99
    Gavin Groninger  6'5   Plainfield              99
    Vincent Hart     6'7   Gary Westside           99
    Mariel Harris    6'5   Gary Westside           99
    Krunti Hester    6'8   Indy Brebeuf            99
    Richard Wright   6'7   East Chicago Central    99
    Brody Boyd       5'9   Dugger Union            00
    Brett Buscher    6'7   Chesterton              00
    Myron Hodge      6'7   Evansville Evans        00
    Austin Parkinson 6'0   Northwestern            00
    Shane Powers     6'5   Andrean                 00
    Zack Randolph    6'7   Marion                  00
    
    Purdue has been mentioned with 9 of the above players to my knowledge, but is likely evaluating them all. Purdue will have 2 available scholarships for the Class of 1999 and 5 for the Class of 2000. A player profile on Austin Parkinson will debut within the next two weeks.
