Last week Purdue added their first commit for 2023 with the news that guard Myles Colvin has committed to the Boilermakers.
If that name sounds somewhat familiar that’s because Colvin is the son of former Purdue football standout Rosevelt Colvin. While Myles played both basketball and football when he was younger, he gravitated more towards basketball, especially after Purdue started showing interest in the legacy.
The 6’5” Indiana native also had offers from Butler and Indiana before deciding to go with Purdue. As a sophomore Colvin averaged 18.5 points and 6.2 rebounds per game and is a member of the 2023 Indy Nets Basketball Elite Club. The junior is currently unranked by recruiting sites, though that could change in the near future. Even more so after a productive summer in the AAU circuit. Colvin brings plenty of length and athleticism as a wing and should prove to be a solid fit in Painters style of play.
Purdue’s family connections and being the first school to offer Colvin before anyone else seemed to notice has seemingly paid off for Matt Painter.
