Ewing is listed at 6-feet-8.5, 215 pounds and will give the Boilermakers some frontcourt depth next season. He’s the third member of the Boilermakers’ 2017 class, which does not lack height.
Also in Purdue’s 2017 class are 3-star SF Aaron Wheeler (6-feet-8) and 3-star C Matt Haarms (7-feet-2). Together they give Purdue the 10th-best 2017 class in the Big Ten and 57th-best in the nation, says 247 Sports. Players can sign their National Letters of Intent during the early signing period between Wednesday and Nov. 16.
