Men’s basketball adds transfer student Brekkott Chapman

On Wednesday, June 22, Weber State men’s basketball head coach Randy Rahe announced the addition of Brekkott Chapman to the Wildcat basketball team. Chapman transferred to Weber State after playing two seasons at the University of Utah.

The 6-foot-9-inch, 205 pound forward was recruited by the University of Utah out of Roy High School in 2014. In high school, Chapman averaged 19 points and 8.6 rebounds.

As a freshman at the University of Utah, Chapman played in all 35 games and averaged 5.7 points, with a shooting percentage of 48 percent from the field.

His sophomore season, Brekkott helped advance his team to the second round of the NCAA Tournament by averaging 4.4 points and 2.8 rebounds per game.

While Chapman only played 13 minutes against Fresno State in the NCAA first round, he knocked down four points and grabbed two rebounds, helping his team advance to the second round where they were beaten by Gonzaga.

Chapman had a career-high of 15 points against Arizona State on Feb. 25, 2016.

According to NCAA transfer rules, Chapman is required to sit out the 2016-17 season, but will have two eligible years with the Wildcats, beginning in the 2017-18 season.

Young has many accomplishments, including assisting the Bradley women’s basketball team in winning five of the final 12 regular-season conference games.

In his first year with the Braves, Young also helped guide Bradley to its best conference record of 8-10, with a sixth place finish in the 2009-10 season.

“We are excited to have Skyler as a part of our Wildcat family,” head coach Bethann Ord told Weber State Athletics. “He’s going to be valuable to the development of our athletes who love to work.”
