According to his father’s Instagram page and ESPN, former BYU guard Jordan Chatman has chosen to continue his college basketball career at Boston College.
Chatman opted to transfer from BYU following his redshirt freshman year but he had already earned his bachelor’s degree. That makes him eligible to play right away under the graduate transfer rule.
Chatman is a 6-foot-4 guard who averaged 2.6 points per game while averaging 10 minutes per game off the bench. His father, Jeff Chatman, was an all-conference forward for the Cougars in the 1980’s.
Jeff Chatman indicated his son had received recruiting attention from Boston College, Chaminade, Davidson, Georgia Tech, Portland State, Minnesota, George Washington, Utah State, Idaho State, UVU and Weber State.
Jordan Chatman qualified to attend BYU Law School but wouldn’t have been able to play basketball at the same time. It’s not yet known what his course of study will be at Boston College.
Boston College finished just 7-25 last season and 0-18 in Atlantic Coast Conference play. The Eagles 2015-16 roster showed three seniors – including leading scorer Eli Carter — and nine freshmen.
Last week BYU managed to snag a graduate transfer to take Chatman’s place with Houston’s L.J. Rose, a 6-3 senior guard.
