Couple thoughts, based on this article
1. His decision has been sort of under the radar because I think most expected him to leave. The fact that he’s still enrolled in school and taking classes makes a return a legitimate option. If he came back, I still think MSU is your Big Ten favorite but Purdue would be 1A and a certain preseason Top 10 team nationally.
2. Say what you will, but the kid has taken his conditioning seriously. He looks fantastic in the photo and video in that article. All the private chef stuff aside, whatever was done at Purdue put him in position to max out and he’s taken advantage. Good for him.
