Canyon del Oro lineman Chase Randall announced today he has de-committed from the University of Sioux Falls in order to continue pursuing his goal of playing for a Division 1 football program.
Randall, 6-foot-1 and 255 pounds, has been assessed by CDO coach Dustin Peace as a player who can play at the highest level of college football.

Peace has coached the likes of Blake Martinez (Stanford), Ka’Deem Carey (Arizona) and Jared Tevis (Arizona) as CDO’s coach. Stevie Rocker Jr., the Dorados’ standout running back the last three seasons, also signed with Arizona in December.
“Chase is one of the best defensive linemen I’ve ever coached as far as his motor and his physicality,” Peace said. ” It’s kind of funny when we had Blake I always called him my ‘Go Get ‘Em Guy.’ If we needed to be physical on a player — not targeting or anything illegal — I would say, ‘Hey Blake, run that dude over.’ It was a matter of this is what’s going to happen and Blake had to get it done. That’s exactly what Chase is — he’s a ‘Go Get ‘Em Guy.’ He’s just a physical, physical kid.”
Sioux Falls is one of the more competitive Division II programs.
“I’ve had one dream and I’m willing to do whatever it takes to achieve that,” Randall mentioned in a text message today.
