Purdue will have another All-American banner in Mackey Arena in time. I assume the only reason it did not have one this year is because you cannot have one for an active player. Last season Carsen Edwards was on multiple All-America teams and won the Jerry West Award as the nation’s best shooting guard. Today he was named as a Second Team AP All-American, giving him Consensus All-America status:
Edwards becomes Purdue’s first two-time All-American since Glenn Robinson in 1993 and 1994, while being named Purdue’s second consensus All-American in the last three years (Caleb Swanigan – 2017). Edwards is the 12th Purdue player in school history to be named a two-time All-American and just the sixth in the last 60 years.
