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.

Read Davis' full message above.

Davis isn't the first departing star to hit social media to show his appreciation, as Michigan State's Denzel Valentine and Indiana's Yogi Ferrell recently did the same.
