Isaiah Thompson (6-foot, 165 pounds) is the first commit in the Boilermakers’ 2019 class. Out of Zionsville, Ind., Thompson also had an offer from Butler.
Thompson is considered the No. 7 recruit in Indiana, the No. 42 point guard and No. 212 overall recruit in the 2019 class in the 247Sports composite ratings. Purdue has signed three recruits — centers Trevion Williams and Emmanuel Dowunoa and shooting guard Eric Hunter — in its 2018 recruiting class.
Thompson is hoping to have some of the same success as his brother in West Lafayette. P.J. Thompson has been a factor in all four of his seasons at Purdue, and he is averaging 9.1 points per game and has started in all 17 contests this season.
