SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Another local college star is set to audition for the Utah Jazz in a pre-draft workout.

Former Weber State big man Brekkott Chapman has been listed among 11 other draft prospects for two sessions of workouts to be held on Saturday at the Jazz’s practice facility.

Chapman came to Weber State after transferring from the University of Utah in 2016. In two seasons with the Wildcats, he started in 59 of 60 possible games. He ranks second in program history in blocks per game averaging, is third in 3-point percentage and is fifth in career blocks with exactly 100 rejections.

Coming out of Roy High School in 2014, he was considered a top 50 recruit by ESPN.

Chapman is the latest local star to work out for the Jazz. Utah State’s Neemias Queta and Utah’s Donnie Tillman both auditioned earlier for Utah, but ultimately decided to withdraw from the draft. Tillman has since taken a leave of absence from the Utes.

The Jazz will also work out Luka Asceric from Austria, Terry Harris from North Carolina A&T, Sagaba Konate from West Virginia, Martin Krampelj from Creighton and Nick Weiler-Babb from Iowa State in the first session on Saturday.

The second session of the day will feature Jarrell Brantley from Charleston, Moses Brown from UCLA, Luguentz Dort from Arizona State, Bruno Fernando from Maryland, Talen Horton-Tucker from Iowa State and Jalen McDaniels from San Diego State.

The NBA Draft will take place on June 20 in Chicago. Currently the Jazz hold the 23rd and 53rd overall picks.
