Shortly after revealing his top three schools, Roy High (UT) 2014 forward Brekkott Chapman tweeted today his verbal commitment to the University of Utah.
I am proud to say I've committed to the University of Utah! #Ute :)— ALPHA (@BrekkottChapman) July 29, 2013
Chapman recently surprised at least a few by telling Utah newspapers his top three were Utah, BYU, and UCLA. Common sentiment was that BYU was no longer in consideration among a slew of new Pac-12 offers as well as pursuit from Gonzaga.
But a source very close to Chapman, who said prior to most of the Pac-12 offers that Utah had the advantage, told Vanquish The Foe: "No one will ever know how hard it was for him to say no to BYU. [BYU was] second."
Chapman joins recent in-state commits Jordan Loveridge and Parker Van Dyke, marking a bright future for Larry K and the Utes. Chapman is ranked in ESPN's Top 50 for the 2014 class.
