Skinny: Bullock is still new to the game of football but has tremendous potential.
“Chase has only played organized football for less than two years,” said Northern coach Gary Merrill. “He works very hard and is a student of the game. Football is a new sport for Chase so he focuses very hard and is able to absorb information like a sponge. He really shows a strong desire to learn and wants to do well.”
Bullock has already received a couple of offers in writing.
“He has a scholarship offer in writing from Maryland and was got called the other day and offered by assistant Coach Rychleski,” said Merrill. “Maryland and Wake are the only offers so far.”
Bullock is also interested in North Carolina, Clemson, Virginia and East Carolina. His coach feels that whatever program Bullock selects will be getting a terrific player and person.
“He’s a quiet kid that is very humble and doesn’t realize how good he is,” he said. “The longer he plays the more confident he’ll get. He’s just a tremendous prospect that has a lot of potential.”
