Three offers and counting for Chapman

One of the top JUCO defensive backs over the past two years resides in the Bay Area and City College of San Francisco CB Allen Chapman (5-11, 185) has seen recruiting pick up over the past couple weeks. JCFootball.com caught up with the talented cover-man and he updated us on where things stand and which Big 12 school will get a visit from him later this month…

"Things have been going good as far as recruiting is concerned," Chapman told JCFootball.com recently. "I have offers from Kansas State, New Mexico State and Tulsa right now and Colorado, Utah and Utah State are all recruiting me as well.

"I'm all set to visit Kansas State on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, the 28th and I'm going to head out there with my teammate, Nigel Malone, to visit."

Chapman is a two-year starter for the Rams and totaled 47 tackles and led the team with five interceptions as a freshman in 2009. This season, he's been just as big of a playmaker, racking up 40 tackles and five more interceptions while helping CCSF to an 8-0 record.

"I'm a man-to-man player," Chapman noted. "I like coming up and getting in people's faces and shutting them down and that's what I've been able to do."

Chapman was all set to sign with San Diego State after he graduated from Oak Grove (San Jose) High School back in 2009, but was unable to get past the NCAA Clearinghouse.

"I was all set to sign there, but when I retook the SAT, the Clearinghouse said there were some irregularities, so I had to look for a JC to go to," Chapman said. "I had some family who had played here and they said it was a real good program to be a part of so I came and I've been really happy.

"I'd say, when I got here, I'd say I was a mediocre corner, but I've really improved a lot with my technique and how I play the ball."

In addition to his confident personality, Chapman also possesses outstanding speed, running a 4.32 in the 40-yard dash.

"I have speed and quickness and I like to be aggressive," Chapman said. "That's what I do best, play aggressively and shut guys down."

Chapman is on pace to graduate in May and he will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
