Report: Recruit Caleb Swanigan commits to Purdue

The Detroit News

After rescinding his verbal pledge to Michigan State, Caleb Swanigan announced Tuesday he's going to Purdue, according to Scout.com.

Swanigan's mentor Roosevelt Barnes confirmed the prized recruit's choice with the website.

"I think he fits in great with their system," Barnes told Scout.com. "He's a very versatile player. I think he will always be a mismatch with (A.J.) Hammons and (Isaac) Haas; that means Biggie will have the second biggest guy on him."

The 6-foot-9 Fort Wayne Homestead (Ind.) High center is considered one of the top high school players in the country.

Arizona, Kentucky and California were among the school he considered after he backed away from MSU, according to the report. Purdue coach Matt Painter and his ability to develop players were the deciding factors in the final decision.
