- "Chans had an opportunity to go anywhere in the country and he came here," coach Graham said. "I think that has a lot to do with what our program is about. He's big, fast, strong and versatile, and he's going to be a guy that will be impactful to our program in a hurry. We signed DJ (Foster) and Jaxon (Hood), who were two of the best players in the state last year, and then to add Chans, who is one of the top guys in Arizona this season, is something we're very proud of. His size, his speed and his character are things that really separate him, but it is the leadership that we think he can provide that really gets us excited."
