Former Pitt QB Chapman enrolls at Ashland University
Quarterback Tra'Von Chapman, who was dismissed from the Pitt football team after serving three days in jail on an attempted assault charge, has enrolled at Division II Ashland (Ohio) University and will be eligible immediately, according to school spokesman Al King.
Chapman, a freshman, was one of the prized recruits of Pitt's Class of 2013 and participated in spring drills before he was arrested April 26. A four-star recruit, he started practicing with Ashland's team Wednesday and will be the backup to starting quarterback Austin Bruns, also a freshman.
Chapman and Ashland coach Lee Owens were unavailable for comment. Ashland plays at Wayne (Mich.) State on Saturday.
