HEAD COACH DAVID FAULKNER
"I'm new to the program and only had Chase one year, but he was a tremendous defensive player for our squad, a team that tied a school record for wins.
"After starting two years at safety, Chase was really productive when we moved him to linebacker. He can really run and has excellent athleticism. As his senior tape began circulating, a lot of schools showed interest. He brings a rare blend of intelligence, speed and toughness to the field.
"He is definitely a SEC-caliber player, and a great prospect for the Vanderbilt coaches. Once Chase is in that college weight room environment, he is going to be much bigger."
