Cline is headed to the Big Ten

One of the best long range shooters in the Midwest is off the board.

Some of the top shooters in the state of Indiana are continuing to come off the board. The latest is Carmel (Ind) product Ryan Cline. The 6-foot-4 shooting guard has a tremendous long range stroke, and now he is going to be taking his game to the Big Ten.

"At first we kept telling the guys at Purdue that we were going to wait, but over the weekend we talked a little bit but the more we talked to Ryan about it, I asked if he got 10 scholarship offers from any group of schools are you going to want to go there," said Cline's father, Mike. "He said no, and that he wanted to go to Purdue."

Cline continued, "I asked him what are we doing, because they could find someone else and you never know. I said this is where we feel comfortable, this is somebody that wants you, and thinks you can be a really good player, and they basically looked at Ryan as a player and said he fits what they want and how they feel he is perfect for their offense."

Over the past few seasons Purdue hasn't been one of the more efficient offensive teams in the country, but after adding a 2014 class full of shooters and a 2015 marksman like Cline, they are looking to change that in a big way.

Cline is the first commitment for Purdue in the 2015 class and one of the top players in the state of Indiana.
