Scout's take: Edwards to Purdue

Purdue coach Matt Painter received some good news on Saturday when ESPN 100 small forward Vincent Edwards (Middletown, Ohio/Middletown), ranked No. 83 overall, committed to the Boilermakers over offers from Dayton, Michigan and Xavier.

"I picked Purdue because it feels like home and I am very comfortable here," wrote Edwards via text from Saturday's Notre Dame-Purdue football game.

This is a great pickup for Matt Painter, landing the second-best player from the state of Ohio. Only Ohio State commit Jae'Sean Tate ranks higher.

Why did he pick Purdue? And what will he bring to the Boilermakers? Let's break it down.

This week wasn’t quite as busy as last week in the Northeast region, but there was still plenty of action. Here’s a look at a few commitments that have gone down in the last seven days:

• Robert Morris landed a commitment from Jamesville-Dewitt (N.Y.) guard Jafar Kinsey, a quick, attacking style guard. A combo guard with a college ready driving game, Kinsey gets wherever he wants on the floor and also has the potential to become a very good defender at the next level.

• Albany added a commitment from Christian Brothers Academy (N.Y.) big man Greg Stire. The local product is tough and rugged, defends the post and has a solid motor. He’ll be solid but unspectacular offensively and able to contribute some both around the rim and facing the basket.

• Fairleigh Dickinson landed a late commitment in the Class of 2013 from Canisius (N.Y.) guard/forward Matt MacDonald. The 6-foot-3 swingman is a master role player who will bring toughness and leadership to the FDU locker room. He’s also a gym rat who has worked his way into a consistent shooter over the years.

And here’s a look at some of the notable offers and visits to come across the wire this week:
