Was this the guy who said it was down to Michigan & Purdue and was probably going to go to the one who 'showed him the most love'? Or is that someone else

Recently Bluiett had said it was around 24 schools and he was looking to narrow it to 5-10 around the beginning of August. This is the guy that most thought for sure would have gone to Butler if Jordan had been hired. 4* SF out of Indianapolis.

"I probably have the best relationship with their coaches," he said. "Me and (assistant coach) LaVall Jordan talk or text almost every day and coach (John) Beilein is in contact about once a week.
