Things are coming down to the wire for some commits and they are in the process of finishing up visits. This is the stage for Whiteland's Thomas Purdie. The 6'5 forward is looking to finish things up this week if all goes well.
However, there are a few things still left to do including a pair of visits. He took a trip to Trine on Tuesday and he has a visit to Marian set for Thursday. Following these trips, Thomas thinks he might be ready.
“Narrowed it down to a few schools and hopefully after my visits this week I'll be 100% positive of where I'm going,” Purdie said.
There are five schools he is looking at. Marian, Cincinnati Christian, Trine, Franklin College, and MacMurray are the contenders and one should have good new sooner rather than later.
“A school where I can fit in the system,” Purdie said of what he is taking into consideration. “Have an impact my freshman year and a place where we can compete for championships every year. Also, a school that can maximize my opportunities in the classroom.”
Of the five schools Thomas is considering, only three will have visits, Trine and Marian which he is doing this week and he had already taken a visit to Franklin.
