National Signing Day: West

10:12 p.m.

Hamilton High School (Chandler, Ariz.) three-star wide receiver Chance Brewington has signed his Letter of Intent to play football at Northern Arizona University.

Brewington, who spoke to The Left Bench’s Alex Murphy in November, had received seven FBS offers, but picked the Lumberjacks at the end.

“Personally, I thought that was the best decision for me,” Brewington said. “The way their offense is run, the way [wide receivers coach] Aaron Pflugrad develops receivers, seeing guys like Emmanuel [Butler] and Elijah Marks and… how they’re going to be in the league soon.”

247Sports ranked Brewington as the 16th best prospect in the state of Arizona and the nation’s 107th best wide receiver. According to the 247Sports Composite Rankings, NAU’s Class of 2017 is ranked No. 4 in the Big Sky conference.

“I’m hoping [this season] will challenge me,” Brewington said. “I want to grow as an athlete and as a person as well. Personally, my goal is honestly to start. I know they’ve got some veterans, but I’m willing to challenge them for their spot.”
