Purdue men's basketball coach Matt Painter on Friday landed a commitment from graduate transfer Jahaad Proctor.

As a grad transfer, the 6-foot-3, 205-pound guard is immediately eligible to play his final season of eligibility in 2019-20.

Proctor announced his decision on Twitter. The Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, native will help fill the Boilermakers' need for perimeter scoring following the departures of All-American Carsen Edwards and Ryan Cline.

Proctor played the last two seasons at Big South school High Point. As a junior in the 2018-19 season, he averaged 19.2 points and 3.2 assists per game. He made 26 of 52 3-pointm attempts over High Point's final eight games to raise his season percentage to 31.8. The previous season, he shot 38.2% from 3-land.

He played one season at Iona before transferring to High Point where he was a two-time second-team All-Big South selection.

"I cannot thank everyone enough for making me into the player I am today," Proctor said in a Twitter post announcing his decision. "I promise that I will be even more dedicated and I will work even harder to fulfill my other childhood dreams."
