Sy Chatman

Illinois State University men's basketball adds forward Sy Chatman for the 2021-2022 season, from the University of Massachusetts. Chatman is set to sit out the 2020-2021 season due to the NCAA's transfer rule residency requirement.

ISU head coach Dan Muller announced the addition to his team on Monday by stating, "Sy is a young man who has incredible potential."

"He is an athletic forward who has great skill. Sy won a State Championship in Minnesota and we believe his best basketball is in front of him. I'm very excited to be a big part of the next chapter of Sy's life as a Redbird."

In his sophomore year, Chatman averaged 5.7 points per game with 3.5 boards per contest. Chatman was also present on defense, averaging 1.2 blocks in six games played. Chatman's career-high of 16 points came against Rutgers on Nov. 29, 2019, before deciding to enter the transfer portal.

In a full season as a freshman, Chatman averaged 3.7 points per game and 2.2 rebounds. 

During his time in high school, Chatman attended Cretin-Derham Hall in Saint Paul, Minnesota, where he won a state championship in his senior year. During his final season, Chatman averaged 17.7 points per contest and pulled down 8.1 rebounds.
