2013 Heritage Christian guard Basil Smotherman, who had an early scholarship offer from Indiana, has committed to Matt Painter and Purdue, according to Eric Bossi of Rivals.com.

Smotherman visited Indiana this past fall for the Michigan football game and was also in attendance for Hoosier Hysteria.

ESPN.com ranks Smotherman the No. 26 prospect nationally in the 2013 class.

The 6-5, 180-pound guard also had offers from Illinois, Notre Dame and Xavier.

Here’s what Smotherman’s AAU coach, Matt Green of the Eric Gordon All-Stars, told us about his game last summer: “Basil is a perimeter threat. At any point in time he can get it going and start killing you from the outside. His mid-range game is getting a lot better.”
