Remember the Name: Chaz Ah You

Chaz Ah You has a name to remember, and that's good since he has a chance to be a nationally elite prospect for the class of 2017...

Chaz Ah You may only be a freshman, but he is already on the radar of over a dozen D1 programs. BYU and Utah have extended early offers to the 2017 standout, and there's a good chance more come this summer.

"It's awesome to have offers from BYU and the U," Ah You explained. "Both coaching staffs have showed a lot of interest in me and are both great places. I know those programs inside and out, this summer will be about checking out other schools to see how they stack up. I will be camping with both schools this summer, along with Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, UCLA, and USC. My uncle CJ played ball at Oklahoma, so I am definitely drawn there. Outside of the Sooners, I love Oregon, UCLA, and USC. With that being said, it is so early in the process and I am 100% open to everyone. I am hearing from Stanford, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Oregon State, Utah State, Colorado, and Hawaii. I like all of those schools too."

Ah You isn't content being one of the best in the state of Utah, he wants to see how he stacks up with the best of the best.

"I went to the NFTC early this month, and that was eye opening," Ah You said. "I saw some of the nation's best, and I am on a mission to get to where those guys are at. I want to be considered one of the best when playing against kids from Florida, Texas, California, wherever. Playing at Oklahoma or a big time Pac-12 school will put me to the test every week."

Ah You is currently 6'1 175 and is one of the best young safeties out West. There's a good chance he continues to get bigger and stronger eventually turning into an outside linebacker or rush end.

"I've been growing a lot lately," Ah You claimed. "When you look at my family, there are a lot of really big and strong guys, so I feel like I may end up changing positions a few time. I haven't really got into the weight room much yet, but I think I may start this summer."

Ah You is one of the most well rounded freshman in the region. He lettered in three sports this year, got straight A's in school, and is very involved in the community. It's rare to find such a talented athlete at such a young age, but it's even more rare when that athlete is grounded and mature. Along with Tayler Katoa and Sione Heimuli-Lund, Ah You is a 2017 prospect that will be bringing a lot of attention to Utah these next few years.
