Top-10 Profiles of 2020: No. 10 Chase Jans

As the year starts to unwind, our staff will start to highlight the top-10 most viewed profiles from 2020 - starting at 10 and counting down.

Today, we’ll highlight Blue Valley OF Chase Jans, the fifth ranked prospect in the Kansas’ 2021 class and 361st overall nationally. A former PBR Future Games participant, Jans is one of the toolsiest prospects in the Midwest. He’s a 6.45 runner in the 60-yard dash, boasting a game-changing run tool that will certainly play at the next level. He also has some sneaky power potential harnessed within a rather compact stroke that stems from that high-end athleticism of his.

Jans is committed to attend Kansas next fall and his run tool should make him a weapon for the Jayhawks in the Big 12.
