Purdue All-American Caleb Swanigan announced on Twitter Tuesday afternoon that he'll announce his NBA plans — or presumably at least parts of them — Wednesday morning.

He'll do so, it would appear, on the Popular Nobodies, a hip-hop-focused podcast that originates out of Fort Wayne.

Swanigan, who averaged better than 18 points and nearly 13 rebounds for Purdue this season and has been named a finalist for every National Player-of-the-Year award that matters, is expected to declare for the draft. The question would be whether he ultimately remains in it.

Should Swanigan declare for the draft but formalize only that part of it, he'd have until May 24 at 5 p.m. to return to Purdue should he so choose.

Teammates Vincent Edwards and Isaac Haas may also declare for the draft with the option to return for their senior seasons should they so choose.
