Trip Report - Chaz Ah You

2017 Timpview (Ut.) S Chaz Ah You, the 10th-ranked safety in the country, was in Seattle this weekend the check out Washington and he updated on how things went during his time in the Emerald City...

"It really opened my eyes to Washington," Ah You said shortly before flying out of Sea-Tac. "Coming up here, my mind was sorta closed to Washington, but I really respected the coaches and wanted to see it for myself, so I came up and it really blew me away. 

"I loved everything about the trip and it really made a huge impact on my decision."

Ah You's host on his trip was Husky linebacker Kyler Manu and that two spent quite a bit of time together.

"I'd never met him before, so it was cool just hanging out and getting to know each other," Ah You said. "We spent pretty much every moment together and we also hung out a lot with the other players -- Jake Browning and all those guys -- and they were really welcoming to me and they made me feel at home.

"If I chose to go there, I know it will be a place that will treat me like they are family and they will make me feel like it's home."

Since this was his first trip to Seattle, Ah You used the time to see everything that both Seattle and the University of Washington had to offer, but, while there were many things that stood out, one aspect in particular left a huge impression on him.

"Coach (Chris) Petersen's 'Built For Life' program was just amazing," Ah You said. "When he was there talking about stuff, he basically showed us what it was about and how it not only set you up for success on the football field, but it also set you up for life after football.

"Like I said, it all just blew me away."

Ah You said he still has visits planned with Stanford (1/13) and BYU (1/27) and then he will sit down with his family and make a decision.

As a senior this past season, Ah You had 32 receptions for nearly 600 yards and four touchdowns on offense while racking up 56 tackles, one tackle-for-loss and two interceptions.

He said he still plans to take his LDS mission after his senior year is completed in June and he will then enroll at whichever school he signs with in the summer of 2019.

We'll have more on Ah You in the coming weeks and months and we will update news on him as it happens. Top Stories
