MOREHEAD, Ky. – Alonzo Chatman, a 6-foot-7 forward from Morgan Park High School (Ill.), will join the Morehead State men’s basketball program for the 2016-17 campaign.
“Alonzo (Chatman) is one of the most underrated players to come out of Chicago in a long time,” said head coach Sean Woods. “I think we got a steal because he fits the mold of what we are about here. He’s hard-nosed, he’s the ultimate competitor, he plays with a great motor, and he’s a great kid off the court.”
Chatman, a native of Chicago, helped Morgan Park win back-to-back 3A State Championships during his freshman and sophomore seasons. As a senior, he led the Mustangs to a top three ranking in the state and to a state semifinal appearance.
The Eagles are coming off of one of the best seasons in program history, posting a 23-14 record, along with an appearance in the College Basketball Invitational Finals.
