It’s Purdue. Isaac and Trey Kaufman going to split minutes at shooting guard.

Yeah I still can’t get over the fact Painter told Kaufman he was going to be a 3 and then recruited not one but two small forwards (Waddel and Heide) right after.

And they have Caleb Furst too. The old Justin McKoy trick

I have a strong feeling he will be in the portal after this season.

I don’t think he will be because he is prolly the best of the bunch. I am thinking Furst

You could be right but I don’t think Kaufman will see the three!

Might as well post Traudt highlights.

If either Kaufman or Furst transfer after this year, I wouldn’t be shocked to see Indiana U as the next stop. Woodson is building a bit of momentum in Hoosier land.

I was thinking the same! If we get Traudt, I’m not sure we would be an option. I hate to compare but Traudt could be our Christian Laetner!

Bite your damn tongue!

But you’re not COMPLETELY wrong.

He could be “that persons” identical twin and it’d still be gross to compare the two.

No pressure, Traudt. We’re expecting four Final Fours and two national championships out of you (and an embarrassing inclusion on the next Dream Team).

I meant the 4 Final Fours and a period that cemented their rep! :grimacing::rofl::rofl: Nothing more my friend!

I watched highlights sent here recently and Traudt has soft hands like Laettner for sure. And he kind plays upright the same way. Agree on the comparison low key

I agree but to my eyes Traudt has a much better perimeter game and handle at this stage. CTB should have a blast designing an offense with what he’s potentially bringing in! Add Sheppard and Dunn, we will be a handful!

Lets not push it Chief. Laettner could catch and shoot- face up- or back to the basket. But agree they are similar with soft hands

True! Laetner, like him or not was a special player! Especially in college! Tough to defend! Traudt’s handle just looks a little stronger and perimeter shot a little more proficient. Laetner’s mid-range and back to the basket game looked stronger.
