Purdue signs two in Class of 2004
The official announcement has come that both of Gene Keady's recruits form the class of 2004 have officially signed their letters-of-intent to attend Purdue.
On a press release, Keady praised the basketball pedigree of each player. "I like both of these guys because they come from winning high school programs," said Keady. "They are two class individuals, who we feel will fit in well with what we are trying to accomplish."
Keady on Nwankwo..."Ije is an unusual player in that he is only 6-foot-7, but will probably play down low for us," said Keady. "For his size he has great athleticism, and he possesses good strength. He's the kind of kid who likes the physical play that is involved in the post."
Keady on Liddell..."Adam is a very versatile player," said Keady. "He has the ability to post up, play the wing and shoot the three. He plays tennis and is pretty good, so his footwork is one of his strengths. We've talked with him about working on his strength and trying to bulk up a little bit."
