The state of Utah has been on a nice run when it comes to producing high school talent over the last couple of years. On Monday, Utah landed the state's best player in the class of 2014, Brekkott Chapman.
Ranked No. 57 nationally in the Rivals150, the 6-foot-8 combo forward from Roy (Utah) decided that he would stay home and help to rebuild the Utes program.
While the Utes have struggled, they have shown significant improvement under head coach Larry Krystkowiak. After going 6-25 overall and just 3-15 in the Pac-12 in Krystkowiak's first year, the Utes improved to 15-18 and 5-13 in the second.
Much of the nucleus is young players, and the best of the bunch is sophomore-to-be Jordan Loveridge, who will still be around when Chapman lands at Utah.
When Chapman lands on campus, Utah fans can expect a versatile player. He shoots the ball with range, he can have the offense run through him in the high post, and he's a fluid transition athlete who can really run from rim to rim.
Essentially, all the tools are there for Chapman to make a significant impact as a freshman. Additionally, he's huge because he is the second Rivals150 player whom Krystkowiak has been able to keep in state. It will help send a message that Utah is a legitimate option for the state's and region's top players.
