It's never too early to talk about players, who are seeing their stock shoot through the roof, and that's the case for class of 2009 defensive end prospect Justin Chaisson (6-5, 255, 4.8) from Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman. He's been going on a very productive camp circuit where he already has three offers.
Recruitneks first became aware of Chaisson when he was timed with a 4.7 40-yard dash at the US Army combine last January. He runs a 4.8 consistently.
The one thing that has been a constant when talking about Chaisson is he's obviously very legit.
Legit indeed, he has been very busy in the early summer going to one camp after another.
"I've been to Oklahoma, Nebraska, Florida and LSU," Chaisson said. "I'm at Nevada's camp with my team and then I'm heading to USC and UCLA camps next week."
Chaisson has been very impressive at the camps he has attended because he has received offers from Oklahoma, LSU, and Florida. Iowa and hometown UNLV also have offers on the table. Nebraska will offer him officially in September.
Though it is early, Chaisson already has a top three schools, but it appears he's going to one of the most sought after players in 2009 so that list could easily change.
The early leaders are Florida, Oklahoma and Nebraska.
The scouting report on Chaisson is he has outstanding speed off the edge, but what makes him even more valuable is his strength and power. If his quickness doesn't beat his opponent then strength and power will.
Chaisson earned all-league as a sophomore after accounting for 60 solo tackles and 15 sacks. He was an all-state selection as a freshman.
What is Chaisson looking for in a college?
"I'm looking for a good fit with me and the coaches, plus the atmosphere of the school," Chaisson said. "Also academics will be a very important consideration."
