Zach Edey waited until nearly the last second to decide whether he should leave for the NBA or return to Purdue for another season.
Not completely sure what he wanted to do, the reigning national player of the year picked up the phone to talk with his mother and agent. Their response: do what’s going to make you the happiest.
“It was a no-brainer that I’d come back to Purdue at that point,” Edey said. “I get to come back to great teammates, a university that loves me, to compete for every championship that’s out there. That’s something you don’t get very often and something I didn’t want to pass up.”
