Just last week, Trevon Bluiett scheduled a visit to Purdue. But first he made a trip west to UCLA, and whether he would even make it to his Purdue visit without committing was in doubt.
For the last month or so, Steve Alford and the Bruins -- who happen to feature Bluiett's former high school coach Ed Schilling on staff -- had been making a major run at the 6-foot-5 wing from Indianapolis (Ind.) Park Tudor.
On Monday, Bluiett did what had been expected and predicted by committing to the Bruins.
Ranked No. 46 in the 2014 Rivals150, the four-star prospect confirmed his commitment via Twitter.
"Blessed to have many schools recruiting me," Bluiett tweeted. "But in the end, there's only one school right for me. I'm officially a Bruin."
The first member of the Bruins' 2014 recruiting class, Bluiett is one of the nation's premier jump shooters.
While he has gained plenty of attention for his jump shooting, to label Bluiett as purely a shooter would be a mistake.
In fact, when Bluiett is at his best, he is a versatile inside-out guy. A smart and fundamentally sound player, Bluiett is as crafty a 6-foot-5 player as you will find when he decides to post up around the rim. He isn't a mega athlete, but he is smart and he has great touch to go with a well-developed arsenal of post moves.
Play him in the high post and his threat as a jump shooter or passer to cutters puts defenders at his mercy as a driver.
Bluiett will need to work on his lateral quickness and his ball handling.
The addition of Bluiett is one that the Bruins hope to use as a selling point to recruits left on their board such as point guards Jordan McLaughlin and Quentin Snider (who visited with Bluiett), along with bigs Thomas Welsh and Michael Humphrey.
