Brian Waddell hadn't heard all that much from Purdue the past few months, making the call he received from Matt Painter earlier this week a bit of an eye-opener. Just days after the senior from Carmel High School led the Greyhounds to a state championship, Painter was calling the son of former Boilermaker teammate Matt Waddell to offer a scholarship. "I hadn't really talked to Coach Painter much over the past year, maybe a few text messages here and there," Brian Waddell said.
