El Camino corner says yes to Utah

Good cover-corners are tough to come by and El Camino has one of the best in the state of California this year in Lamar Chapman (5-9, 170). He's loaded with confidence and today he made the decision to commit to the school who was the first to step forward with an offer.

"I did it just earlier today," an excited Chapman told JCFootball.com. "It was cool because the Utah coaches were out here watching our practice and afterwards I just talked to them and told them I wanted to make my official commitment.

"They were really excited and relieved that I committed. They said they think I can come in and play right away for them."

Chapman received his offer from the Utes a few weeks ago, but didn't make his commitment because he wanted to see what else was out there. However, after getting some counseling from his coaches at El Camino he decided to commit to the Mountain West school.

"My coaches here told me they thought this was the best thing for me to do," Chapman said. "I'm mainly a man-to-man guy and they play a lot of that out there where it's just man up and cover a guy. "I still have a redshirt available, but I want to go in there and show I'm ready to go right away so I don't have to sit."

Chapman claims a 4.46 forty time, but will be in attendance at Saturday's JC combine that will be held at Citrus College.

"I'm going to show up there and show that I'm one of the best guys out there," Chapman said. "Tell everybody to get ready because I'm there to prove things to some people."

Chapman will graduate in March of 2008 and will have three years to play two when he arrives on campus.
