The big news of the day...reports are that 6'6 wing forward Caron Butler from Maine Central Institute is close to verballing to Purdue. Regardless of internet speculation, Butler had NOT made an official announcement to attend Purdue as of late Tuesday evening. A profile on Butler will appear by late this afternoon and we'll keep you informed when and if the announcement becomes final.
If the Butler verbal is close to happening, Purdue will use the remaining scholarship on a guard. That means Ricky Wright will be choosing to go to school elsewhere. Indications are that Indiana has also been dropped from his list, and he has added Villanova and Xavier. Michigan is still in the running.
John Stewart made an official announcement to attend Kentucky on Tuesday.
