A top graduate transfer has reportedly made a new pledge.

Evan Boudreaux, a 6-foot-8 All-Ivy League forward for Dartmouth, was committed to Xavier, but backed off his commitment to the program in the wake of a recent coaching change.

Former Xavier head coach Chris Mack was sworn in as Louisville's new head coach after the program relieved interim coach David Pagett of his duties.

The Musketeers must search for a new coach, and new recruits.

Purdue, meanwhile, won't be looking for either.

After a trip to the Sweet 16, the Boilermakers started off the 2018-19 recruiting cycle with a bang, landing one of the top grad transfers available.

Boudreaux, a Lake Forest, IL native, averaged 17.5 points and 9.5 rebounds per game and recorded 15 double-doubles for the Big Green.

He'll have two years of eligibility left.
