PLAYER BIO

Gene Keady liked what he saw in the lanky, 6'7 forward from Dekalb, IN. So much so he offered one of a precious two scholarships for the 2003-2004 season, even when the team needed a center, not a forward. But the Purdue staff saw Liddell's versatility as something they could use. In high school, the 6'7 long-armed post player is an intimidating shot blocker and post defender. In the summer he gets to show his perimeter game a little more and his ability to hit the three. He's a good leaper and possesses a nice, high release.

Adam verbally committed to Purdue on April 9, 2002. He officially signed with Purdue during the early signing period in November of 2002. Both parents are Purdue grads.

    6-20-02...Adam Liddell bounced back from a two-point performance in the first Junior All-Star scrimmage to score 14 points in the second game at Wawassee High. The Juniors lost 81-75, but were in the game until the final minutes, in stark contrast to getting blown out by forty points by the Seniors just one week earlier. Liddell hit all of his points in the first half, plus added four rebounds and three assists. Peyton Stovall led the Juniors with 15 points.

    4-10-02...Keady has received his first verbal commitment for the Class of 2003. Dekalb junior forward Adam Liddell, who averaged 11.2 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2.5 block shots this season. Dekalb lost to eventual state champ Gary West in the Lafayette Semistate, finishing with a season record of 23-2.


    SCOUTING REPORTS

    Scouting report by Dekalb head coach Cliff Hawkins..."He plays the game so hard. He’s not shy about playing the game above the rim. There’s nothing reserved about his play. When he puts the uniform on, there’s something special about how he flies around offensively and defensively. (11/14/02, Dekalb Evening Star)

    Scouting report by Gene Keady..."Adam is a very versatile player. 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." (11/15/02, Purdue SID)

    Scouting report by Bob Richards from 2002 Spiece Tournament..."You see the stats and think he must not have had significant minutes. More accurately, he's just not much of a scorer for No Excuses. Actually I can describe 80% of No Excuses' offense. Give the ball for Todd Abernathy and let him create. Liddell's offense wasn't much to speak about. However, he provided a considerable amount of post defense, playing low post to Justin Cage's power forward/high post game. He blocked what would have been the game-tying shot on Friday night, and had a late block on Saturday. No block stats were kept, but I'd guess he averaged four to five per game. Potential, potential, potential. Athletic, with very long arms, and a developing perimeter shot." (5/8/02, Old Gold Free Press)

    Scouting report by Fort Wayne Boiler..."Defense: Had four blocked shots and nine boards. When he played Carroll would not take the ball inside. He definitely was a threat. His opposing player didn't score. He used his board well to get good positioning. Adam did pick up two quick fouls in the first half. However, they just came in the flow of the game - not bad decisions. Offense: He really looks to pass the ball first. I think he had six assists. He is definately an unselfish ball player. Dekalb had some good three point shooters to make the defense pay for collapsing down on him. Adam really didn't dominate the game until Dekalb need baskets in the 4th period. Up to that point he just took what ever the defense gave him. Again he used his body well to his advantage. Free throws: He was 1-1 but shoots flat footed. Three pointers: He was 0-2. He took good shots and squared up. They just didn't go in. I'd let him keep shooting them. Running the floor: He hustled back on defense but didn't necessarily trail the fast break with much energy. He didn't lead too many fast breaks either. Dominance: Adam did throw down two dunks early in the 4th when his team needed to open up the game. One was a nice baseline drive. The other was an alley-oop. Neither time did he sky above the rim. I think Adam can dominate if his team needs him too. Leadership: Adam plays post so the team didn't look to him for much floor control. Late in the 4th, when it was an eight point game, Adam did direct some traffic and make sure people were on the right page. Adam remained in control the whole game - played within his element and emotions. Body: Adam has broad shoulders and stands 6-7 (according to the program). He will need most body mass and strength. However, his frame will handle it easily. Overall, I enjoyed wathcing him play and look forward to seeing him next year. He has a lot of up side potential with hard work and strength conditioning."
