Class of 2015 Conant standout Jordan Hughes of All In Y&R has signed to play his college basketball for head coach Billy Wright and Western Illinois University.
Hughes, a 6'10 center, helped his recruiting stock greatly this spring with his play on the travel team circuit with All In Y&R to earn his Division I scholarship.
Hughes is continuing to make great strides with his game and seemingly got better every time he hit the floor this spring. His best basketball is in front of him and he could ultimately pay off big for WIU.
Hughes was offered and signed while on a visit to the school.
Hughes joins a 2015 WIU class that also includes DeAngelo Bruster, James Claar and Brandon Gilbeck.
Former Glenbard East standout Johnny Hill, who last year played for Texas-Arlington, will transfer to Purdue as a graduate student to play out his final year of playing eligibility.
Hill, a 6'3 guard, averaged 9.6 points and 3.4 assists and 1.2 steals per game last year at UTA.
Hill began his playing career at Illinois State ahead of transferring to UTA.
Hill fills an immediate need for a starting point guard.
Purdue returns twin towers A.J. Hammons and Isaac Haas inside, with Kendall Stephens and Dakota Mathias providing a pair of big-time distance shooters. Do-it-all Raphael Davis also comes back.
