Derek Willis, a four-star power forward from Mt. Washington, Kentucky, is wavering on his commitment to Purdue. The Bullitt East product committed to the Boilermakers back in April but he could be looking to open things back up. However, one Purdue blog doesn’t see Willis leaving for his home state schools because Willis’ father doesn’t trust Coach Cal or Rick Pitino:
I do have reason to believe that Willis will remained committed to Purdue. Del Willis pretty much gave Kentucky Coach John Calipari and Louisville Coach Rick Pitino the verbal one finger salute with the statement,’I don’t know if I can trust a Coach (Rick) Pitino or Coach (John) Calipari. Their agenda is more for their benefit than the kid’s. They’re more worried about themselves.” This is great because we all know of Calipari’s and Pitino’s sparkling track records. Del Willis also reiterated how much of a comfort zone they had with Coach Painter and Coach Owens.
Not that we really care – Willis didn’t even hold an offer from UK when he committed – but how can someone in the state of Kentucky not like Coach Cal? Del Willis doesn’t get it.
I guess everyone is entitled to their own opinion though. Kind of like our opinion of West Lafayette, Indiana. Have fun with that.
