4-star wideout Ja’Marr Chase spurns his home-state team for a SEC rival Twitter/@10jayy__

Ja’Marr Chase has a new home, and he made his announcement on his Twitter account — he’s going to Florida.

Chase is a 4-star recruit in the class of 2018 who goes  6’2, 195 pounds.

In choosing Florida, Chase, who plays his high school ball at Archbishop Rummel in Metairie, LA., spurned the LSU Tigers.

Chase committed to Kansas in February, but decommitted 10-days later, citing a change of heart. At the time, the 247 Crystal ball had him pegged to go to LSU, but clearly, that didn’t happen. He was also a major target for TCU and Tennessee.
