The 61st-best player in the country in 2017, per ESPN, McLaughlin took a visit to Purdue the last weekend of March, which sealed her feelings about the program. "I feel like it'd be really awesome to play in your home state," she said. "I think that's it's something special, definitely. "... To be able to say 'Boiler Up,' that's exciting in it- self." McLaughlin was an outstanding shooter for Home- stead, scoring nearly 2,600 points in her career, with a 46-percent mark from three-point range as a senior. ESPN ranks her as the No. 10 point guard in the coun- try, and she feels better about the position after playing there as a senior. "I think that was really beneficial," she said. "I'm comfortable in both positions, so wherever Coach Ver- syp needs me at the time, I'll be willing to go in and do that for her." McLaughlin is the fifth member of the '17 class, join- ing Léony Boudreau, Fatou Diagne, Tamara Farquhar and Dani Lawson. j It's All On The Best Purdue Sports Information On The Web • Real-time recruiting • Game stories, analysis and blogs • Premium message boards • Video, audio, live stream events and more • Exclusive access to premium information Part of the network Note: is a separate subscription than your subscription to Gold & Black Illustrated/Gold and Black EXPRESS.
