What makes you say he isn't a team guy? I don't know but it sounds like a lot of rationalizing on your part as to why he wouldn't have been a good fit, when in reality no one knows. What we do know though, is that he has a lot of talent in an area we desperately need it. And I'm not trying to get on you, because you're one of the very few posters here who can handle a differing opinion without turning into an overly emotional teenage girl, and immediately going to insults.Losing him sucks from a talent standpoint, but, this guy was not going to be a fit...and, that became clear unfortunately.
Purdue was a better team from a talent standpoint certainly, but, he is not a team guy...and, in reality, there is a chance that he would not have handled playing with Colvin well (despite them being individually ultra-talented).
There are some valid concerns with respect to recruiting...time will tell if it will persist...and, whether or not Purdue genuinely solves the NIL matter...or, can actually figure the portal out (in conjunction with NIL).
