Five-star recruit Caleb "Biggie" Swanigan committed to Purdue on Tuesday, and the school decided to celebrate the occasion by tweeting out a photo of another famous Biggie.

Swanigan, a native of Fort Wayne, Indiana, had originally committed to play for Michigan State before backing out, giving the Boilermakers one more chance to snag the highly touted recruit.

The tweet features the iconic photo of Biggie Smalls with a crown sitting atop his head, along with the phrase "No Dream is to B1G" which was also the tagline for the Notorious B.I.G. biopic Notorious.
