Purdue has offered 6'9" 2016 power forward Nick Rakocevic, from Westchester, IL. Rakocevic is not yet rated on the 247Sports Composite Index. Nick has offers from Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Creighton, Miami, and Northern Illinois to date. He has also has interest from schools such as Duke & Florida. Rakocevic is the 8th player offered by Matt Painter in 2016. The Boilermakers currently have 2 openings for that class assuming no one on the current team leaves early for any reason and also assuming they fill up the 2015 roster with freshman.
Here was Rakocevic's reaction to receiving the offer on twitter:
It is still too early in this recruitment to figure out who has the upper hand, but there is certainly a lot of tough competition here for this highly sought power forward. The crystal ball currently has him at 75% Illinois and 25% Duke (who has not even offered yet) based on 8 predictions. If Duke does offer, I have to believe that is who will be favored to land Rakocevic's services, but crazier things have happened so Boiler fans shouldn't give up hope just yet.
