D.J. Byrd Commits To Purdue

D.J. Byrd, the 6'5, 200 lb shooting guard out of North Montgomery High School in Crawfordsville, IN., has committed to Purdue University to play basketball for the Boilermakers in the 2009-10 season. D.J. is a good shooter with deep range, I'm talking beyond 22 feet. D.J. does not do much off the dribble but can get by a defender that feels that they can pressure him too close. This kid is a big guard that has the ability to play multiple positions on the floor. As you can see, he already has a Big Ten ready body, and to match that he has good athleticism and he plays hard all of the time. Byrd is a player that should be somewhat familiar with Purdue's basketball program, being from Indiana. Head coach, Matt Painter should feel very fortunate to get a guy of his physical stature that can slide in and fit with what they do on both sides of the ball.
