Purdue guard Carsen Edwards plans to test the draft waters without hiring an agent, Gregg Doyel of the Indianapolis Star tweets. The 6’1” Edwards averaged 18.5 PPG and 2.8 APG as a sophomore for the Boilermakers, who were knocked out in the Sweet Sixteen by Texas Tech. Edwards will get some feedback and likely return to Purdue unless he gets some sort of draft guarantee, Doyel adds. Edwards is currently ranked No. 72 on the prospect list by ESPN’s Jonathan Givony.
