The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Chartouny averaged 12.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 4.6 assists this season.
Chartouny has also heard from Marquette, Louisville, SMU, Oregon, Rutgers, Purdue, Butler, and Nevada, per Goodman. He can play immediately and has one year of eligibility left.
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.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) April 5, 2018
Chartouny’s calling card appears to be his defense. The Quebec native averaged 3.3 steals per game and rated as Fordham’s best defender with a defensive box plus/minus of 3.3.
Chartouny appears to be a solid distributor, too, posting an assist-to-turnover ratio of almost 2 to 1.
His scoring ability is a little iffy. Chartouny shot just 37 percent from the field and 32 percent from 3 this season. But he did get to the line 4.6 times per contest, making 77 percent of them.
Plus, he shot 38 percent from 3 as a sophomore when he hoisted 4.7 per game, so there’s potential as a shooter.
Chartouny mostly played the 2 and the 3 this past season, per KenPom, but did spend some time at the point as well. And he was Fordham’s primary point guard in 2016-17 when he averaged 5.0 assists per game.
Arizona needs help at both guards spots, so Chartouny would provide the Wildcats with quality depth, and could maybe even compete for a starting job.
Other graduate transfers Arizona has been linked to are:
- Pitt forward Ryan Luther
- Evansville wing Ryan Taylor
- Idaho State center Novak Topalovic
- Albany guard Joe Cremo
- Texas A&M Corpus Christi guard Ehab Amin
- Old Dominion center Trey Porter
