Scout Updates the Recruitment of 2019 LB Chance Cover

Scout takes a look into the recruitment of 2019 linebacker Chance Cover, who is already on the radar of some top-tier college programs.

Chance Cover, a 6-foot-, 225-pound linebacker from Fort WOrth (Texas) Nolan Catholic has emerged on the radar of quite a few college programs.

He has most recently been on unofficial trips to see schools like ArkansasOklahoma, and Texas Tech, who all have him on their 2019 lists. He broke down those trips and the interest. 

Arkansas - "The visit had a lot to show. The facilities were really good, especially the academics center being the nicest one in college. They are showing a good amount of interest. When I got on campus all of the coaches knew me. I talked to coaches the whole time during the visit and spring game."

Oklahoma - "This was my first ever visit and it went great. The academic advisers were really easy to get along with as well. I talked with coach (Bob) Stoops and (Tim) Kish a lot of the visit. The facilities were still under construction, but they blew me away."

Texas Tech - "The visit to Tech went amazing! The coaches and staff were really easy to connect with. The facilities were great and academics were a huge priority. They are showing top interest in me and also talked to me about playing early."

Of the trio, Cover feels like the Red Raiders in the Big 12 Conference may be closest to offering him a scholarship. 

"Texas Tech," Cover answered when asked who could pull the trigger on an offer first. "They have shown the most interest and talked about playing early there."

Cover assembled a strong sophomore season with 125 tackles, one interception, and one forced fumble. Cover played his sophomore season for Class 6A Trophy Club (Texas) Byron Nelson. 

"My biggest strength is how I can get downhill really quickly and lead," Cover said. "I also am very explosive and run my feet through the tackle all the time. I also have very quick hands and shed blockers quite well."

Cover is also hearing from programs such as BaylorColoradoLouisiana Tech, and Texas A&M. He has plans to take an unofficial visit to TCU after spring practice has concluded.
