Clint Chapman, the 6-foot-10, 245-pound center from Canby (OR) High School is still a work in progress, but there is no doubt that he has a great deal of upside and potential. As it stands right now, several schools are beginning to express a serious interest in Chapman.
"We were 20-7 on the year and lost to the eventual state champion," said Canby head coach Dan Walker. "We faced some adversity along the way because Clint's brother went down with an injury. Clint is still a work in progress, but the growth he made was outstanding.
"This was Clint's first year of varsity experience and he showed tremendous progress along the way," he added. "He averaged a double-double for the year and really took his game to another level after his brother went down with the injury. I believe that he finished the year averaging 15.6-points and 10.8 rebounds."
As far as his recruitment goes, it appears that Chapman is going to have quite a few options to consider when the time comes to make a decision. It should come as no surprise that the 6-foot-10, 245-pound center is wide-open at this time, but quite a few schools are seriously interested in him.
"A lot of schools are calling about Clint," said Walker. "Colorado State, Wyoming, Pepperdine, Nevada, Leigh and San Deigo are the schools that I know of. I am sure that Clint has some other schools that he has talked with, but those are just some of the schools that have been in contact with me.
"Clint's ceiling is so high right now," he added. "He is definitely a work in progress right now, but he is starting to come around and has already shown a lot of improvement and growth."
