Chapman Aiming for Spring Graduation

He played for one of the most talent-laden JC programs in the country, yet because of his size, El Camino CB Ray Chapman (5-7, 159) is still waiting to see if he can garner a D-1 offer. caught up with the gifted cover-corner and he updated us on things...

"This year I started every game and I had three picks," Chapman, who also posted 34 tackles, told recently. "I can play over the slot or out wide. I played over the slot alot because of my quickness, but I can play both."

Chapman said he used his speed (4.42) and surprising physicality to surprise opponents.

"I loved it when a big receiver came up on me," Chapman said. "You could tell they thought they just had to be physical with me and they could run right over me, but I would get into their chest and really bother them a lot because of how physical I was."

On the recruiting front, Chapman was hearing from New Mexico State before signing day, but that interest has since waned.

"They said they liked me a lot, but I haven't talked to them for a while," Chapman said. "I've got a few D-1AA schools looking at me, but they haven't offered yet."

Chapman is on pace to finish his two-year degree in May and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
