Jordan Chatman is headed to Boston College. His father, Jeff Chatman, dropped the news to ESPN and Jeff Goodman announced it Tuesday on Twitter.
Boston College has landed BYU grad transfer Jordan Chatman, his father told ESPN.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) June 28, 2016
Chatman announced his decision to transfer a couple of weeks ago just hours after his father announced he was accepted into BYU's J. Reuben Clark Law School, via social media.
Jordan Chatman graduated from BYU in April with a degree in Asian Studies after just two years in Provo.
Boston College is located in the ACC alongside basketball power-houses Duke and North Carolina and looks to be a good landing spot for Chatman. Being a graduate transfer, he will not have to sit out a year and will contribute immediately.
Boston College went 0-18 in ACC play last year and currently has a roster with only one senior and one junior. It appears that Chatman will be able to focus on his education and have a huge impact for the basketball team.
Chatman averaged 2.6 PPG and 1.0 RPG in 10 mins of action per game last year. But, with guards Kyle Collinsworth and Chase Fischer both graduated Chatman was in-line for a huge increase in minutes. Rumors swirled that BYU's law school would not allow him to also play basketball. Either way, best of luck to Jordan Chatman at his new school.
BYU still has one available scholarship for this upcoming season. Coach Rose and his staff are actively searching for junior college and graduate transfers. BYU needs another caliber player like recently signed LJ Rose, to bolster their roster this fall.
