When the time comes for Clint Chapman to make a final decision about his future, it appears that he is going to have an almost unlimited amount of options. The 6-foot-10, 245-pound power forward from Canby (OR) High School is being recruited by a large number of schools from different locations around the United States.
"My recruitment is going good right now," said Chapman. "School wise, I am hearing from USC, Portland, Portland State, Gonzaga, Pepperdine, Arizona State, Purdue, Utah, Loyola Marymount, Colorado State, Wyoming and Virginia. I don't have any scholarship offers yet, but there are a lot of schools expressing an interest in me.
"I have not taken any unofficial visits yet, but there is a chance that might happen," he added. "I have a lot of family that lives in California, so I could get out and visit schools like USC and Pepperdine. I also plan to use all five visits before I decide. Virginia, Utah and possibly Wyoming are the schools that I would like to visit. I don't know about the final two visits."
Until the time comes for Chapman to dedicate more time on his recruitment, the Oregon native is going to focus on the remainder of his junior season at Canby High School. Since his brother was lost for the year because of tear to his meniscus, Chapman has been the focal point of the offense.
"The season is going great for us," said Chapman. "We are undefeated in league play and only have two games left. My brother tore his meniscus and is out for the year, so I have been playing a lot better recently.
"I have been scoring about 20-points per game since my brother went down with the injury," he added. "I have been getting a lot more touches and have been able to show my stuff on offense."
