WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — It's a new era of Boilermaker basketball.

Following the departure of the winningest class in school history, Purdue finds itself in a transition period.

Isaac Haas, Vincent Edwards, Dakota Mathias and P.J. Thompson — all starters for the Boilermakers a season ago have graduated.

Haas, Edwards and Mathias have participated in NBA workouts ahead of Thursday's draft.

While the foursome has departed, one starter returns to West Lafayette: Carsen Edwards. 

The standout guard tested the NBA draft process but decided to return for his junior year.

Edwards is coming off a sophomore season in which he led the Gold and Black in scoring at 18.5 points per game.

The Texas native also earned the Jerry West Award, which is given to the nation's top shooting guard.

With just two seniors on this year's squad in Ryan Cline and Grady Eifert, one would assume Edwards will pick up more of a leadership role.

But Edwards plans on letting his play lead the Boilers.
