With heavy hitters from across the country including Michigan, Northwestern and Creighton recruiting Aaron Wheeler for his services, he could only choose one.
The 6-foot-7 Brewster Academy forward and Stamford, CT native had the mindset of doing just that by choosing Purdue. I came down to one school and it was the only official visit that Wheeler took during his recruitment process.
Purdue Head Coach Matt Painter lands his third New England Prep Product in the past three seasons. Wheeler joins previous New England Prep player Jacquil Taylor (Beaver Country Day), and Michigan transfer Spike Albrecht (Northfield Mt. Hermon).
Wheeler announced his decisions via his twitter fresh off an official visit to the Boilermakers campus.
Coach Painter is getting a versatile forward who runs the floor well and really gets out on the break. Has a smooth touch when attacking the rim and a fluent face up game that extends beyond the arc.
Wheeler has yet to scratch the surface and there’s no question at first glance you can see the potential he has to make a big impact at the collegiate level.
Aaron Wheeler is the second Purdue 2017 commit joining Matt Haarms.
