The DePaul Blue Demons under Coach Oliver Purnell should embrace a bright future. Coach Purnell has a series of turnaround seasons on his resume and could do the same for DePaul faster than expected. That is why he received the job as Head Coach.
He was a part of Old Dominions seven post seasons runs. We give credit to Purnell for turning around Radford and making them a 20-plus win team. Clemson and Dayton have also felt the Purnell effect.
The DePaul Blue Demons will feel it sooner or later. Coach Purnell has the opportunity to make one of the biggest acquisitions in the history of DePaul. This would transpire if Anthony Davis Jr. elected to accompany the Blue Demons in '11-12.
If that does not fall into place, the Blue Demons could acquire another newcomer in the 2012 class that could avail the turnaround causes. Kyle Anderson the 6-foot-7 guard-forward from St. Anthony High School has shown a lot of interest in DePaul.
While, in Chicago for an Adidas Nation Event, Anderson took an unofficial visit to the program.
Anderson enjoyed himself a lot, while catching up with old friends, as well. According to ESPN's Eric Angevine, Anderson seems remarkably enthusiastic about the Blue Demons program.
He has an exceptionally close relationship with Billy Garrett that dates back to when he first touched a basketball.
DePaul will be a suitable player in his recruiting trails. The 6-foot-7 forward connection with Garret and Brian Ellerbe could sway him away from questionable schools and favor DePaul.
The DePaul program is making a lot of strides towards bringing in elite talent. The Blue Demons will not be the Big East’s worst team any longer.
