Star LSU wide receiver and defending Biletnikoff Award Ja'Marr Chase is totally "locked-in" on playing this upcoming season instead of possibly opting out to prepare for the NFL Draft, according to his father Jimmy Chase. Per 247Sports:

“He’s going to play the season out,” Jimmy Chase said. “He’s locked in with his team, and as long as everybody is healthy, he’s said he wants to play with his team and his teammates.

"He just loves the game, and he loves LSU. He wants to finish his career out in a positive manner.”

"When I bring it up, he's like, 'Dad, I don't even want to talk about it,'" Jimmy Chase said. "I have to respect his decision on it. He's the one that's playing"

"Everybody is looking at the position Ja'Marr is in with being a top pick," Jimmy Chase said. "That's fine and dandy, but they don't see the competitive juices that are in him."

Why would he opt out? This season is shorter than last year and won't be as hard on the body with season starting later to be out of the terrible heat in early September. Makes sense to play than to just say ah u know what I don't have to play since what I see the professionals doing. His draft stock would drop alot if would not play

Ever hear of COVID-19? That's what he is referring to more than fear of injury.

And no, his stock would not drop "a lot". Some? Maybe. A lot? No!

Every time I read one of your posts, I think “that guy really needs to take an English class”.
