Former Evanston Township High School basketball star Gordon Watt has been dismissed from the Purdue University basketball team following his arrest for suspicion of operating a vehicle while intoxicated. Watt was one of the top Class of 2004 prospects in the state of Illinois as a high school senior.
Watt, a 6-6 forward, began his college career at Boston College ahead of transferring to Purdue after his freshman year. Watt was a starter for Purdue last season, and was again expected to be a major contributor this year.
Watt had previously been disciplined in 2005 following an arrest for suspicion of public intoxication.
