Bluiett takes one visit another upcoming

Trevon Bluiett had a good visit to Purdue mid-week, and at least one and potentially two big games over the weekend are on tap for him as well.

His season ended a bit prematurely, but Indianapolis (Ind.) Park Tudor small forward Trevon Bluiett is using the extra time to make some college visits. The four-star forward is hitting up some of the top games in the country with another big one coming up.

On Wednesday night Bluiett and his father Reynardo made the trip north from their home in Indianapolis to West Lafayette to watch Purdue take on Michigan. Both schools are heavily involved in Bluiett's recruitment, and according to Reynardo the atmosphere at Purdue was impressive.

"The atmosphere is always great," said Bluiett. "The fans come out and support them no matter what is going on. It was very loud, the crowd was in it, and the team thrived off of it."

Bluiett has been up to Purdue several times this season, and the relationship being built with the staff is a good one.

"We talk to Jack (Owens) pretty much weekly, and talk to Matt (Painter) at least once or twice a month and just basically keep in touch," said Bluiett "We just see what is going on up there with the school and how hard the team plays. Really it is quite impressive."

Along with Purdue, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Butler, Xavier, Cincinnati, Louisville, and a few others remain in consistent contact with Bluiett.

In fact this weekend could be a busy one for Bluiett. On Sunday he is definitely going to Ann Arbor to check out Michigan against Indiana, and it is possible on Saturday he will stop by Butler as they take on Xavier.

The trip to Michigan has been one that has been planned for a little while, and it is a game that the family is really looking forward to.

"We had no idea so much would be on the line when we set the date up," said Bluiett. "It should be a good game with two of the top teams not only in the Big Ten, but in the country going at it. It should definitely be a good game. We are going up there to get in that atmosphere and see everything in person."

The weekend games, as well as the Purdue game, featured teams that Bluiett is considering playing against each other. According to Reynardo the outcome isn't a big deal, but it is good to see the coaches in action against each other

"It's a little surreal at times," said Bluiett. "Of course the outcome of the game will have no impact on the school he will eventually decide on, but it is good to see guys and how they operate and how the teams respond. It is kind of good to get him in there and watch the coaches and players, so it makes it a little easier."

For now Bluiett is still a ways away from making his decision, but the family is trying to gain as much information as possible both during visits and when talking to coaches.
