Out of Palo Alto (Calif.) High School, Chryst has one of the biggest arms in the class of 2014, and combined with that polish, Chryst has been rated as a consensus five-star recruit. The 6'3, 215-pound Chryst has been compared by some to Andrew Luck, formerly of Stanford.
Chryst threw for 2,489 yards as a junior with 28 TDs and 11 interceptions and off the field has a 3.7 GPA. His offers include Alabama, Arizona, Arizona State, Pittsburgh, Stanford, USC and Utah. Many believe he will eventually end up with the Cardinal. Chryst was selected to the Elite 11 Finals based on his film and his performance at the San Francisco Elite 11 Regional.
