Former Cornell guard Errick Peck, a potential fifth-year graduate-student transfer, visited Purdue on Wednesday, according to a source.
Peck, a native of Indianapolis and former standout at Cathedral High School, would be an important answer to the Boilermakers' many issues. He is a proven veteran scorer with NCAA Tournament experience.
Peck is expected to visit Xavier next week and will make a decision shortly after. A source believes Purdue is the front runner to land his services.
As a senior -- his third year of eligibility -- Peck averaged 9.7 points in 24.5 minutes per game. He missed his entire junior season due to a knee injury.
Purdue lost three players -- Sandi Marcius, Anthony Johnson and Jacob Lawson -- to transfers after the season, leaving the program along with departing seniors D.J. Byrd and Dru Anthrop. The Boilermakers do have three freshmen entering the program, but must add depth for next season.
Boiler Sports Report will offer an update on Errick Peck when new information is made available.
