Electric LSU WR Ja'Marr Chase reportedly makes decision on 2020 season
If you look around the country, some top college prospects are opting out ahead of the 2020 season, and you really can’t blame them.
The latest came Tuesday night in Penn State linebacker Micah Parsons, as he’s projected to be a top pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
However, LSU wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase won’t be one of them. Chase’s father, Jimmy, told 247Sports’ Chris Hummer that his son will play his junior season.
“He’s going to play the season out,” Jimmy Chase said. “He’s locked in with his team, and as long as everybody is healthy, he’s said he wants to play with his team and his teammates.
“He just loves the game, and he loves LSU. He wants to finish his career out in a positive manner.”
That’s obviously great news for LSU. In 2019, Chase caught 84 passes for 1,780 yards and 20 touchdowns en route to winning the Biletnikoff Award as the nation’s top receiver.
Chase combined with Terrace Marshall should create a dynamic duo for new quarterback Myles Brennan.
