As the July evaluation period begins, Purdue's coaches' whereabouts will be guided largely by those of their top Class of 2018 (and beyond) priorities.
Here's a look at some of the most notable of those players, with the understanding that prospects can join this list — or fall from it — at any moment this month.
No particular order.
Note: Purdue already holds a commitment from big man Trevion Williams and will follow him closely, but he'll no longer be listed as a "target," per se.
Purdue's front-burner center target, the Miami Westwood Christian big man and native of Ghana officially visited West Lafayette in June, and the Boilermakers seem to be out in front of the field with this one.
Academically, Purdue has struck a chord, and it's pitch to big men has resonated too for a player who's only really played for two seasons now and could use some development, particularly offensively. As is, though, he's an effective defensive player and has offset his experience gap to some extent with sheer effort.
