A top graduate transfer has reportedly backed off his pledge.

Evan Boudreaux, a 6-foot-8 All-Ivy League forward for Dartmouth, was committed to Xavier, but has now re-opened his recruitment.

Former Xavier head coach Chris Mack has accepted the Louisville men's basketball job, leaving the Musketeers searching for a new head coach.

They'll be looking for other top recruits as well.

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 is a two-time All-Ivy League second team selection. His scoring was actually down from his freshman season, when he averaged 17.7 points.

He'll have two years of eligibility left. Will he join Chris Mack at Louisville? Only time will tell.
