While it was really only a matter of time, Purdue joined the list of other Big Ten schools that have offered St. Charles East shooting guard Kendall Stephens. The 6-3 sophomore received an offer from the Boilermakers on Saturday, joining Northwestern, Illinois, Wisconsin and DePaul as schools that have extended offers.

Stephens blossomed this offseason, vaulting up the City/Suburban Hoops Report's player rankings in the Class of 2013. Prior to the start of the season, Stephens was a top five prospect in the class. And he's solidified himself with a terrific sophomore year, averaging 16.5 points per game for coach Brian Clodi's Saints.

Everette Stephens, Kendall's father, starred for coach Gene Keady and Purdue in the 1980s and is currently Clodi's assistant coach at St. Charles East.

Another big thing in 2013? You betcha

Some say, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree!
This is poetic justice, but it is also a sign of respect!
Kudos to Purdue University!
