A week after landing Dartmouth big man Evan Boudreaux, Purdue basketball is interested in another mid-major graduate transfer.
The Boilermakers are among a host of Power 5 programs to reach out to Fordham guard Joseph Chartouny, according to ESPN Basketball Insider Jeff Goodman.
Fordham grad transfer Joseph Chartouny has heard from Marquette, Louisville, SMU, Oregon, Arizona, UConn, Rutgers, Purdue, Butler and Nevada, sources told ESPN. Averaged 12.2 points, 5.6 boards and 4.6 assists this past season.

Purdue is losing four starters from a team that won 30 games and advanced to the Sweet 16 this past season. And its fifth starter, All-American point guard Carsen Edwards, could also be leaving. He declared for the NBA Draft but did not hire an agent, preserving his college basketball eligibility should he decide to return to school.
So, getting players with ample Division I experience will likely be helpful for next season. The Boilermakers already snagged Boudreaux, and now they’re going after Chartouny, a versatile guard who averaged 12.2 points, 5.6 rebounds and 4.6 assists this past season.
