BYU men’s basketball head coach Dave Rose announced on Thursday that guard Jordan Chatman will be transferring from the program.
“Jordan is a great student-athlete,” Rose said. “We’re proud of what he achieved on and off the court. We wish him and his family the very best.”
Chatman is a 6-foot-5-inch guard from Washington. He redshirted his freshman season and averaged 10 minutes per game in 36 games last season for the Cougars.
He graduated from BYU in April with a degree in Asian Studies after only two years on campus.
“I would like to thank Coach Rose for the opportunity to play at BYU,” Chatman said.
Chatman’s father, Jeff, is No. 8 on BYU’s all-time scoring list.
Jordan will have three years of eligibility remaining.
