Second to last palindrome day. That means we are getting closer..
We're just 22 days from the season opener, so today we''ll take a look at #22 on the Boise State roster—Chanceller James
#22, Chanceller James, RS Sophomore, Safety
Height: 6'2" (+1")
Weight: 208 lbs. (+3lbs)
High School: Steele Canyon High School, Spring Valley, CA
How'd he get to The Blue™?
Chanceller had a stellar career at Steele Canyon High where he was teammates with fellow class of 2012 recruit Mario Yakoo. James improvement each year at SCHS was evidenced by his movement up the all-conference ladder. He was an honorable mention All-Grossmont Hills League performer as a sophomore after making 50 tackles and 2 picks—a 2nd team all-conference performer as a junior, after racking up 70 tackles and 7 forced fumbles (and recoveries) and finally a first-teamer last season, when he made 80 stops and 5 INTs. Along with James' Bronco offer, he held offers from Air Force, Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, New Mexico, and San Diego State.
If you want to remember what James looks like on the field, take a look below:
Chance... real creative, I know.

Special Teams Scout Player of the Year in 2012. All-Grossmont League first team in 2011. All-Academic team in 2011. All-Grossmont League 2nd team in 2010. All-Grossmont League honorable mention in 2009.
Coming off a Scout Team Player of the Year honor in 2012, the world was James' oyster at the start of fall camp last year. Unfortunately, his knee bent how knees aren't supposed to.and his season was lost before it started. Coming into this season, James is more or less back at square one. To start, after missing spring ball recovering from the injury, the almost entirely new coaching staff has little more than recruiting videos to judge who James is as a player. Additionally, it looks like he may have lost some ground to some fellow players. Now that he's healthy and back on the field, I expect him to resurrect the skills that brought him to The Blue. He has excellent size for the secondary; although, I've always wondered how he'd fit in at corner rather than safety. Can't wait to see him progress through camp.
Is he on Twitter?
Not sure. Probably not. Meh.
Completely made up fact
He is a frequent browser/lurker on this site. Hi, Chance!
