WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Purdue men’s basketball head coach Matt Painter has announced that Matt Haarms has entered the transfer portal.
Haarms, a 7-foot, 3-inch from Amsterdam, averaged 8.6 points, 4.6 rebounds, 0.9 assists and 2.0 blocks per game while shooting 52.4 percent from the field, 31.3 percent from 3-point range and 63.4 percent from the free throw line a year ago for the Boilermakers.
Haarms finished his career fourth in Purdue history in blocked shots with 210.
“Just believe I needed a change of scenery to take my game to the next level, don't have anything but positive things to say about Purdue but I just felt like it was time to move on," Haarms told ESPN college basketball insider Jeff Borzello.
According to Borzello, over 25 teams have reached out to Haarms including Kentucky, Louisville and Gonzaga.
