PURDUE MENS BASKETBALL RECRUITING:

    Some interesting comments this week in the Indianapolis Star about Purdue's want to sign another big man for next season. "I think they're going to be OK, at least one of them should be," Keady said, referring to the status of Prop48 recruits Cameron Stephens and Jamaal Davis. Regardless, Keady says he plans on signing another kid this spring. Coach Weber explained it as having a backup plan already in motion. "We know at this point we don't have a scholarship, but we still live by the philosophy of expect the unexpected," said assistant coach Bruce Weber. "We're trying to touch base with as many kids as we can in case something does come up. There's always a chance of someone leaving or Cameron or Jamaal could become eligible. You have to have some kind of backup. We're trying to be as best prepared as possible in case they don't make it."

    A Boiler fan with his eyes open helped to illustrate the continued visibility of the Purdue staff with potential post prospects. A fan driving through Saint Louis picked up a local paper to find that a Purdue coach was in attendance at a Saint Louis Lafayette game last week checking out 6'10 Robert Archibald. Lafayette is ranked #24 in the nation by USA TODAY. The article stated "With coaches from Mississippi State, Northwestern, Oklahoma State, and Purdue among the sellout crowd, Archibald scored all 16 of his points in the second half..." Archibald is a transfer student from Scotland, who is an athletic post player with a good combination of power, moves and a soft shooting touch. He also nailed a three-pointer during the game. The 6'10 unsigned senior is considering a host of programs not limited to Michigan, Illinois, St. Louis, Kansas State, and Missouri.
