Swanigan to return to boilermakers

 

 

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue forward Caleb Swanigan has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return to school for his sophomore season.

The Boilermakers made the announcement before Wednesday’s deadline.

Swanigan averaged 10.2 points and 8.3 rebounds and was named to the Big Ten’s all-freshman team last season. The 6-foot-9, 250-pound former Indiana prep star worked out this week with the Indiana Pacers and said then that he still had to meet with Purdue coach Matt Painter and others before making a final decision.

The announcement came a day after swingman Vince Edwards announced he would return to Purdue for his junior season.

Purdue was 26-9 last season and 12-6 in conference play.
