The Longhorns added the big man out of Oregon after he took an unofficial visit to Austin this past weekend.
``I loved everything about Texas," Chapman said. "The facilities, the players, the coaches. Everything was great."
``I know it's going to be a challenge at Texas and it's going to be tough, but I think it'll make me the best player I can be in the long run."
The 6-foot-10, 240-pound Chapman skyrocketed up the rankings after a production and impressive summer. Chapman proved he can score in the paint and also showed the ability to step away from the basket and make shots from mid-range.
He took an unofficial visit to Arizona State on Thursday and then headed directly to Austin from Tempe for a couple of days.
``They are all great programs, but I just fell in love with Texas when I got there," Chapman said.
