Brekkott Chapman, who spent the last two years at Utah, is transferring to Weber State, the school announced Wednesday evening.

The 6-foot-9 forward was a top-50 recruit in the class of 2014, and averaged 5.1 points and 2.5 rebounds in his two years with the Utes.

“We are very excited that Brekkott has decided to join our program and the Weber State family,” Wildcats coach Randy Rahe said in a statement. “We’ve known Brekkott well and have watched him throughout his high school years and his time at Utah, and we feel very strongly that he has tremendous potential to become a very good and impactful player, as well as a great person and student in our program.

“We feel very strongly that Brekkott will fit our culture well and be a great fit with our players and the University, He has a very exciting future ahead of him and we’re glad he has entrusted us to help him develop in all areas of his life.”

Chapman will sit out the upcoming season under NCAA transfer rules, and will have two seasons of eligibility remaining starting in 2017-18.

The Wildcats went 26-9 and advanced to the NCAA tournament last year with just one senior, potential NBA Draft pick Joel Bolomboy, on the roster.
