Cornell fifth-year transfer Errick Peck will join the Purdue program, a source confirmed to Boiler Sports Report.

Filling scholarships was a top priority for Purdue this offseason. It made a key addition on Wednesday with Cornell transfer Errick Peck. A source confirmed the forward picked Purdue over Xavier.

Peck, an Indianapolis native and former standout at Cathedral High School, joins the Boilermakers as a fifth-year graduate transfer, making him eligible to play immediately this season.

A 6-foot-6 forward, Peck first visited Purdue on May 1 and got a glimpse of what the program offers. He spent this past weekend at Xavier while his mother visited West Lafayette.

As a senior -- his third year of eligibility -- Peck averaged 9.7 points in 24.5 minutes per game. He missed his entire junior season due to a knee injury.

Purdue lost three players -- Sandi Marcius, Anthony Johnson and Jacob Lawson -- to transfers after the season, leaving the program along with departing seniors D.J. Byrd and Dru Anthrop. The Boilermakers do have three freshmen entering the program, but must add depth for next season.

Boiler Sports Report will provide further updates as they are made available.
