WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Purdue men's basketball program held its final team camp on Thursday.

Several high school recruits were on campus including Mishawaka Marian's Jaden Ivey.

Ivey became the first commitment in the Boilermakers' 2020 class on April 24. He chose the Gold and Black over offers from Butler and Notre Dame.

Ivey is no stranger to Notre Dame. His mother, Niele, was an All-American point guard for the Fighting Irish and won a national championship over Purdue in 2001.

Ivey wants to follow in his mother's footsteps and bring a national title to West Lafayette.

He believes Purdue is more than capable of achieving that goal, but it was Niele's belief in Ivey that that helped him get to where he is today.

"She's meant a lot to me," said Ivey, "She's been there since day one. She's always been around in my corner and I can truly thank her for that because without her I don't think I'd be committed to Purdue. She's helped me along the way and without her I don't think I'd be here right now."

Thursday's team camp provided a sneak peak of what's to come for Ivey. He said it was surreal playing in his future home.

"Whoa," said Ivey. "It was kind of early today. We had an early drive up here. When I was driving listening to my music I just saw Mackey Arena and I just had to smile because I'm going to play here in two years."
