A Big Ten rookie has signed a multi-year deal with Nike.

Former Purdue standout Caleb Swanigan has agreed to an apparel contract with Nike, ESPN's Nick DePaula reports.

Swanigan, a rookie for the Portland Trailblazers, showed a ton of promise this summer.

Swanigan's ascension to the NBA is one of the most-motivating we've heard. He weighed 360 pounds at the age of 13 and had since worked himself into tremendous shape. Swanigan is expected to play serious minutes for the Blazers this season.
