Chandler senior running back Chase Lucas, the first of the top-rated 2016 football prospects in Arizona to narrow his list of colleges, has both Arizona and Arizona State among his top seven.

“It was tough to narrow down the list because I have a real special bond with all the college coaches,” Lucas told me. “But I feel like the schools I picked have a better future for me than the others.”
Lucas is one of the more electrifying players to come through Arizona in recent years with his ability to shift gears and pop loose quickly up the middle.
He is also one of the best kick returners the state has seen in a while.
He had a half for the ages against Phoenix Mountain Pointe early last season before he wasn’t able to go in the second half, suffering from dehydration after being sick most of the day.
“I don’t think I will be committing any time soon, because I’m still open to colleges that haven’t offered yet,” Lucas said. “We will see after my senior season who may come in.”
