Has workouts scheduled right up until Wednesday, the deadline to pull out of the draft.

Big, BIG moment for Matt Painter. If Swanigan returns, he has (on paper, at least) his best team since he’s been in West Lafayette IMO and a legitimate Final Four contender. If he stays in the draft, Purdue’s still an NCAA Tournament team but almost certainly not a deep March run candidate. With new energy coming into the state via Archie Miller, there’d be no better time for the Boilers to really make some big noise than this upcoming season.

Put this together with the two Michigan kids and you’ve got a big 3 days for the conference as well. If all 3 of Swanigan, Wilson and Wagner return, I think the league will have five preseason Top 25 teams (those two, MSU, Minnesota and Northwestern) and potentially two in the Top 10 (MSU and Purdue).
