"One of the most explosive athletes in this national recruiting class. He has rare speed from a guy with his size. He was 200 pounds as a high school senior. Chuba is mature, comes from a great family and support system at Bev Facey High School. He’s as disciplined and competitive as an athlete as I’ve seen in the last 15 years. High-character kid who wants to be the best all the time and is willing to put in the work."
