A former UCLA commit, Chris Steele is one of, if not the, best cornerbacks in the nation for the 2019 class. His film is so good, I’m not sure what more he can do to earn a 5-star rating.
The California native also has his head in the right place. When asked what advice he would give to other high schoolers seeking attention from scouts, Steele offered a well thought-out response:
“One thing I would tell guys that are trying to get recruited is to work hard, keep your grades high, and to always watch who you hang around and what you post on your social media. So many people lose opportunities over social media.”
When deciding where to play college ball, many recruits look for opportunities to play in their first year. Similarly, Steele told Armchair he, “definitely wanted to be on the field his freshman year.” He recognizes that being able to get attention and build film from a younger age could be the difference between being a day one or day three NFL Draft choice.
The 2019 defensive back currently has four offers from SEC schools (Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Alabama and LSU), but expect more of them to start rolling in as the season comes to an end. Florida is one of the schools Steele said he wanted to hear more from, and he mentioned that Alabama is currently up near the top for him.
Steele already knows a few requirements for his future school.
“A good education and good tradition is huge for me. Along with a great staff.”
The top-50 recruit doesn’t have any visits set in stone yet. However, he expects to take a couple unofficial visits this season. A big, physical and smart cornerback, Steele is the type of player that coaches want to get on campus. If he continues his hard work, he has a very bright future ahead of him.
