Purdue's week ended on a high note, as head coach Matt Painter told Jeff Goodman of ESPN that Caleb Swanigan had been cleared by the NCAA.

On Monday, reports surfaced that Swanigan, a consensus five-star recruit in the Class of 2015, had not yet been cleared to play this season. The NCAA's investigation centers around Swanigan and his adopted father, Roosevelt Barnes, a sports agent in Indiana.

Swanigan will be an integral part to one of the best frontlines in the country, as it returns A.J. Hammons, Isaac Haas and Vince Edwards. 

Purdue opens the season on Nov. 13 against North Carolina A&T.
