Purdue Recruiting: Isaac Haas to Purdue

Sandra Dukes-USA TODAY Sports

The 7'2 center changed his mind on Wake Forest and has committed to Purdue.

Purdue added their fourth commit to it's 2014 class, picking up a verbal commit from Isaac Haas. Haas had originally committed to Wake Forest, but didn't sign his letter of intent when the signing period started. Haas's recruiting appeared to open up again, but Purdue was still seen as a long shot for Haas. Painter made a stop recently to watch Haas play and Purdue ended up picking up a verbal commitment earlier today.

Haas joins a class that already included Vince Edwards, Jacquil Taylor and Dakota Mathias, all of which have already signed their letters of intent. Haas will be the highest ranked recruit in Purdue's 2014 class, a four star center out of Alabama that Rivals lists as the 64th best prospect. 247 Sports lists him as the tenth best center out of the 2014 class.

Picking up Haas will be important for the Boilermakers as there's the possibility A.J. Hammons could depart early for the NBA. The Boilermakers had some options at the five already, with Jay Simpson being a possibility and the addition of Jacquil Taylor, but Isaac Haas is a true center and will bring plenty of size down low. The addition of Haas solidifies the frontcourt for Purdue down the line, even without Hammons if he chooses to depart early.

The addition of Haas bumps Purdue's recruiting class for 2014 up to 29th, one spot ahead of Michigan (per 247 Sports). As of now only Ohio State and Indiana have better rated recruiting classes.
