Purdue nabs a big one
In stunning fashion Monday, Purdue got its big man.
Alabama center Isaac Haas, who previously committed to Wake Forest only to not sign on Wednesday as originally planned, announced on Twitter that he'd switched his commitment to Purdue and he'll sign with the Boilermakers, joining fellow signees Vince Edwards, Dakota Mathias and Jacquil Taylor.
The four-star Rivals.com recruit tweeted the following early Monday morning.
After a gruelling week of no sleep, and constant wars within myself. I've come to a decision!
#BoilerUp and I'm excited to play next year in the Big Ten and make my mark on history!!
Thanks to all the UAB, Purdue, and Wake Forest fans for supporting me in my decision to becoming a Boilermaker
Haas completes, presumably, Purdue's search for a Class of 2014 big man, coming full circle to one of the targets the search began with.
The Hokes Bluff High School star is ranked 64th overall nationally by Rivals.com. He chose Purdue in the end over Wake, UAB - which he visited this past weekend - and many others. Virginia and Texas A&M were also finalists prior to the Wake Forest commitment.
The Boilermakers have looked for a post recruit to strengthen its ranks up front and cover it in the event A.J. Hammons should leave school early.
