Report: Decision looming for ex-Purdue center Matt Haarms, who has narrowed his options to three schools
Matt Haarms has been one of the most sought-after players on the transfer market this offseason. Nearly 30 schools reached out to the 7-foot-3 former Boilermaker as soon as he made the decision to leave Purdue.
After a few weeks of consideration, Haarms has narrowed his list down to three schools: Kentucky, Texas Tech and BYU. He is expected to make a decision sometime this week, according to Evan Daniels of 247Sports.
Haarms will have one year of eligibility remaining and will be immediately eligible for the 2020-21 college basketball season.
Haarms was been a key big man for Purdue over the last three seasons. This past season, he averaged 8.6 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 0.9 assists per game. He also totaled 210 career blocks, which ranks fourth in Purdue’s history.
According to Stadium’s Jeff Goodman, Purdue was “blindsided” by Haarms’ sudden decision. It was unclear what Haarms’ transfer plans are or if he has any specific schools in mind. He will have one year of eligibility remaining.
Purdue finished last season with a 16-15 record.
