Lehi- Chase Berry of the Skyridge Falcons is one of the most underrated forwards in the state. Standing 6’6 and 210 pounds with a 36” verticle, he is a lethal weapon playing passing lanes and running in transition. He may be one of the strongest forwards in the state and has great athletic ability.
Chase might be best suited in a college system that plays at an up-and-down fast pace. Trapping and pressing are where his talents could be most utilized and taken advantage of at the college level. He really excels when he is able to use his length and athletic ability to force turnovers and get into the open floor and finish with powerful dunks or unselfish plays to his teammates.
Chase is a team first player that can lead his team in assists or go get a triple double on any given night. Berry is a solid ball handler and could be an elite rebounder from a wing position with added work on technique and getting stronger physically.
Chase said, “I feel like I can get better, I come to work everyday in practice and want to improve as a player”. Chase has a great attitude and is very coachable. He plays for Utah Basketball Club in the AAU circuit and is currently being recruited by SUU, Salt Lake Community College, College of Southern Idaho, Dixie State, Central Wyoming, and Dawson Community College. Chase plans to serve a 2 year LDS mission and will be eligible to start college in the 2019-2020 season.
