Former NBA player and Purdue Boilermakers standout Caleb Swanigan has died at 25.
The Purdue men’s basketball program said Swanigan died Monday night, but it did not provide further details.
Indiana’s Mr. Basketball in 2015, Swanigan was a highly sought-after recruit who elected to stay home and play for the Boilermakers after originally committing to Michigan State.
Swanigan had a standout sophomore campaign at Purdue and was named the Big Ten Player of the Year and was a consensus first-team All American. He was also a finalist for the Naismith Award. Following the season, he entered the NBA draft and was selected No. 26 overall.
