Purdue has added a piece that could bolster their front court next season as Cornell transfer Errick Peck committed to play his final season as a collegian with the Boilermakers.
Peck, a 6-foot-6 forward and Indianapolis native, averaged 11.0 points as a sophomore in 2010-2011, but missed all of the 2011-2012 season with a knee injury. He came back to average 9.7 points and 4.8 boards last year, but with a degree in hand, he’ll be heading to the Big Ten to finish up his career.
Peck will provide a veteran presence for Matt Painter’s club. Purdue has just two upperclassmen currently on their roster — Terone Johnson and Travis Carroll.
