PURDUE MENS BASKETBALL:
Marcus White transfers to Purdue

    The Purdue coaching staff has announced the transfer, in this time, of former Connecticut forward Marcus White. White will be eligible to begin practice with the squad as soon as his enrollment for spring semester is complete.

    "Marcus is a tremendous rebounder and a blue collar-type player," said associate head coach Matt Painter in a press release this afternoon. "We feel we're getting a guy who has all the qualities of what we want our student-athletes at Purdue to possess."

    White officially has logged 1 and 1/2 seasons of playing time at Connecticut, but sat out a year in between due to a bulging disc in his back that required surgery. NCAA regulations give a player five years to complete four years of eligibility from the time of his first enrollment. While White would technically have 2 and 1/2 seasons of eligibility remaining, he loses a year for the medical redshirt plus the year he will have to sit out for transferring. If he gets enrolled at a new program this spring, he would have to sit out until late December of next season, then have 1 and 1/2 seasons of eligibility remaining.

    White will be looked at to provide an experienced post presence for Purdue in the 2006-07 season, when the only player on the Purdue roster taller than 6'7 will be forward Adam Liddell. That will prove important since coach Painter will likely be bringing in a couple of green freshmen post players in that class yet to be announced.
