Name: Will Chapman

Position & Size: Linebacker, 5-11, 215 Pounds

Hometown: Indianapolis, Indiana (Cathedral HS)

2019 Outcome: Redshirt

2020 Prediction: Deep Reserve at Linebacker.

I will be real honest, I do not know much about Will Chapman.

I do know that he comes from one of the best high school programs in the state with Cathedral High School.

Will is a bit small for a college linebacker, but you can be any size you want to be as a walk on. You show some grit and hard work and you will make the team. That is exactly what he did.

Will is a body for practice right now, but that doesn’t mean he will never find the field. Brohm has shown many times he doesn’t care who you are, if you can play you will get on the field.

During his senior season at Cathedral, Will had over 60 tackles and recorded a sack as well.
