"I'm just weighing my options, they've been recruiting me so I want to check them out,' Chappel said. "I'm still open minded."
Trotwood-Madison had a disappointing season by their standards (5-5), although Chappel had an outstanding senior season. On offense he produced more than 900 all-purpose yards and eight touchdowns. Defensively, Chappel has recorded 91 tackles, 14 passes defended, three interceptions, two forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, and one touchdown.
Chappel, who will arrive in Pittsburgh on Thursday, is being recruited by Pittsburgh recruiting coordinator/tight ends coach Greg Gattuso.
