Tight End Brandon Chapman Commits to Wake Forest

The 2016 class continues to grow.

Student Sports

Brandon Chapman, a 6'5" 250 pound tight end, has committed to Wake Forest University. Chapman is from Grove City, Ohio, which is near the Columbus area. He is 33rd best tight end in the 2016 class (797th best player overall), according to 247's composite ratings. He chose Wake Forest over a host of offers, including Kentucky, and Boston College.

Wake Forest is quickly becoming "Tight End U." Cam Serigne had an outstanding year last year, and Devin Pike and Bowman Archibald are also highly regarded prospects on the roster. As you will notice from his highlight video, Chapman is a very physical player and is known more for his blocking abilities than his receiving ability. It's interesting that Nick Tabacca, Wake Forest's offensive line coach, was the lead recruiter for Chapman. Does Wake have plans of developing him into a very athletic offensive linemen in several years? He has the frame to do it.

Either way, this is another solid addition to the 2016 class.
