Chance Amie and Family Visit Texas for JR Day

Head coach Tom Herman and the rest of the Texas coaching staff hosted their first official Junior Day with the Texas Longhorns this weekend, and 6-foot-4, 200-pound athlete Chance Amie and his family made the trip to Austin.

Athlete/Quarterback Chance Amie and his family made the trip from Tyler (Texas) Lee High School to Austin for the Texas Junior Day and walked away impressed.

 

“I went with my parents, and we went to the tent and registered and greeted most of the coaches,” Chance Amie said.  “I met almost all, and they all seemed happy for me to be there. Everyone seemed very comfortable and energetic.  I stand good with Texas. Coach Tim Beck wants to invite me back for a spring practice and wants to come visit me in spring.”

Chance Amie is a talented athlete who could project as a dual-threat quarterback at the next level, the same position he plays for his high school team. Amie possesses a great frame (6-3, 190) for his position. He plays instinctively and makes plays with his arm and his legs. He flashes functional straight-line speed as a runner in zone-read situations and scrambles. Amie shows the ability to throw on the run, especially running with his body to the right. He has enough arm strength to push the ball downfield vertically. He can improve his arm angle and release quickness, as well as his lateral mobility. That said, Amie is an impressive prospect with high production who competes in Texas high school Class 6A against stiff competition. -- Gabe Brooks

Amie holds offers from Bowling Green, Colorado State, Iowa State and Syracuse to name a few.
