Former Dartmouth forward Evan Boudreaux announced in December that he would attend Xavier next year.
Now he’s set to become a Boilermaker instead.
Boudreaux announced Thursday on Twitter that he would attend Purdue next season, having reopened his recruitment after Xavier coach Chris Mack left for Louisville:

Boudreaux ranked second in the Ivy League in scoring, first in rebounding and second in minutes played as a sophomore in 2016-17. The 6-foot-8 Lake Forest, Ill. native has two years of eligibility remaining.
“First and foremost, it was about winning,” Boudreaux told GoldandBlack.com of his move to Purdue. “Getting the chance to play in the NCAA Tournament was a big part of why I left Dartmouth in the first place.”
Illinois, Wisconsin, Butler and N.C. State also showed interest in Boudreaux after he reopened his recruitment, per GoldandBlack.com.
Boudreaux will now get to play for Purdue coach Matt Painter and a program that has made four straight NCAA Tournaments and boasted the second-highest adjusted offensive efficiency in the country this season, according to KenPom.
