Read Rapheal Davis' Instagram post to Purdue fans
Dear Purdue, From last place in the Big10 two seasons ago to where we are now is really something to be proud of. Through everything, the time I've had in Mackey Arena has been the best time of my life! This ride was truly amazing and it saddens me that my career at Purdue is over. My teammates and coaches have this train on the right tracks. From the Paint Crew to the John Purdue Club I appreciate each and every one of you! Boiler Nation embraced me with open arms when I committed at 15 and almost 8 years later the love has only grown. So for that, I thank Boiler Nation, Coach Painter, and Baby Kyndal for turning a boy into a man.
Rapheal Davis committed to Purdue as a freshman in high school.
Needless to say, the Boilermakers have held a special place in the 2015 Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year’s heart for a significant portion of his life, a fact he referenced in his senior night speech earlier this month at Mackey Arena.
Late Monday night, Davis went to Instagram to offer one last “thank you” to Purdue nation.
