Why UW? “It was my dream school, the school I wanted to be part of since I was a little kid, so when I was there (on his official visit), I just knew I wanted to commit. When I was in sixth grade, I actually wrote a paper on what I was going to do when I grew up and one of the things was that I was going to play football for the University of Washington, so when coach (Bush) Hamdan and coach (Jonathan) Smith were down here for my in-home visit and they offered, it was my dream coming true.”
Other Suitors: Chin was committed to San Diego State for a few weeks and he also had offers from Eastern Washington and Wyoming.
Scouting Report: “Chin could be a real late steal for the Huskies. He has nice length and can really run. He's one of the fastest receivers out west and ran on Chaminade's state contending 4X100m relay team last year. He wasn't the featured player in the offense but has shown he can catch the ball and definitely stretch the field. He's a very smooth athlete and can surprise a defender with just how explosive he can be. As he becomes a more natural pass catcher and route runner, he has a chance to be a very solid player at the next level.” – Greg Biggins (Scout.com)
Quotable: “I feel like I am at my best getting down the field and making plays that way. I run good routes and I can make plays when the ball is in the air. I have enough speed to get deep, but I can run any route my coaches need me to run.”
Projection: “With his weight being just 170 pounds, Chin needs to focus for at least a year on getting stronger and adding size to his slender frame. He's got natural receiver skills, he spots the ball well and he catches the ball with his hands. I don't expect him to see the field for at least a year, probably two, but he can be a sold receiver once he adds the requisite size to his frame.” – Scott Eklund (Dawgman.com)
