NorCal RB To Walk-On At Boise State
"I'll grayshirt my first year and enroll in January," he said. "Boise State stuck with me through those injuries and I knew it was the perfect place for me," he added.
"Coach Strausser recruited me," he stated. "He's a very understanding person and wants to give me an opportunity. He's straight up with me. He told me it's going to take a lot of hard work and I'm ready for that."
"I have a lot to prove," said Chapman. "I led the league in rushing my sophomore year. I had a lot of hype going into my junior year before that first ACL injury and then I tore it again early in my senior year. I've had to work twice as hard since then."
The future Bronco can play RB or DB and says he was recruited as an ATH.
"They recruited me as an ATH," he said. "I'm thinking that they'll put me at DB first, but I was told I could be moved to RB as well."
"One thing I noticed is that Boise State plays a lot of DBs," said Chapman. "That means even if I wasn't starting I'd still get a chance to play."
He went on to say that he'll be working in the weight room and out on the field between now and January when he arrives in Boise.
"I'll definitely be in the weight room and out on the field," he said. "I'll also continue running track since that helps me with football. I want to get a lot faster and keep my routine going."
So, what does Aaron Chapman (6'0, 185, 4.45) bring to the gridiron?
"I'm physical and I like to hit," he said. "I also bring a lot of intensity and speed to the field," he added.
