6-2, 180-pound wide receiver Chance Luper, the son of Missouri running backs coach Curtis Luper committed to the Tigers on Thursday, January 30, 2020 to give this year’s 2020 class a late boost.
By DT Yates
Luper is an athletic receiver from Forth Worth Christian in Texas who returned kicks and is physical, going up strong for balls with high jumping track skills. Luper was originally committed to Boise State and held offers from similar offensive minded schools due to his explosive speed (he also ran track in high school). He was listed one of the best available players in the Dallas area and was expected by many to strongly pull towards the ‘Zou after the hiring of his father in December.
As shown from the first play from the video below, saying Luper adjusts well to balls is an understatement. His speed gives him enormous playmaking ability and there are multiple signs he’s an intelligent receiver as well. Luper well waiting until the last moment to make a play on the ball leaving defenders with even less time to react. This shows in his route running as well as he abuses opposing secondaries with his speed getting them turned the wrong way to easily make himself even more open.
