Chloe Chapman, a five-star point guard out of Mitchellville, Maryland, has signed a national letter of intent with the Georgia Lady Bulldogs basketball team, head coach Joni Taylor announced on Thursday.
Chapman is widely regarded as one of the top prospects in the nation. She is the No. 28 overall recruit and No. 7 point guard in ESPNW’s 2019 class rankings and is the sixth-best point guard prospect nationally according to Prospects Nation. Chapman is the first signee of the 2019 class and will be an eligible freshman during the 2019-20 season.
“We are thrilled that Chloe has decided to be a Lady Bulldog,” Taylor said.“She is a poised and confident point guard who has a chance to be a very special player at this level. Chloe is an elite athlete who excels defensively and in an up-tempo style of play, which is what our team is built on and what we want to be as a program.”
Chapman is in her senior season at Our Lady of Good Counsel High School and has been one of the most sought after prospects in both basketball and soccer. She will be a two-sport athlete at the University of Georgia as a member of the Lady Bulldog basketball team and the soccer squad.
On the court, Chapman averaged 12 points, 10 assists, eight rebounds and three steals per game last season at Good Counsel on her way to being named to the Washington Post All-Metro Team. In soccer, Chapman has been a part of two state championship teams and was an all-state selection.
Chapman is Georgia’s first signee of the early signing period, which runs from Nov. 14-21.
