Purdue basketball is starting to become a landing spot for talented big men prospects.
Caleb Swanigan, who tore up the Big Ten last season, is now in the NBA after being drafted in the first round, and current Boilermakers big Isaac Haas is truly a man among boys, standing at 7-foot-2.
You can now add Emmanuel Dowuona, a 6-foot-11 center in the Class of 2018, to that list.

Dowuona, from Miami, is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 6 center in the country and the No. 127 ranked recruit overall in his class. With his Dowuona’s commitment, he now joins 3-star center Trevion Williams as Boilermakers commits for 2018.
Coach Matt Painter has had big, talented bodies to work with in the recent past, and that looks to be continuing in the very near future thanks to both Dowuona and Williams.
