Skylar Chavez to Pepperdine: “Led the state of California in scoring, was one of three state JC players of the year and made the all-state first team in 2019 … Co-player of the year in Northern California … Averaged 27.8 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2.5 assists … Shot 53.2% from the field, 39.5% from beyond the three-point line and 86.9% on free throws … Had nine 30-point games and three 40-point games … Helped Santa Rosa win the Nor Cal Regional and reach the CCCAA state quarterfinals … Was the Big 8 Player of the Year as a 2017-18 freshman … Averaged 19.7 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists … In 58 career games with Santa Rosa, averaged 23.6 points … Attended Drake High School in San Anselmo, Calif.
Romar says: “Skylar is a complete basketball player. In my 25 years of coaching at the Division I level, he’s probably one of the half-dozen best shooters that I will ever coach.”
Santa Rosa Junior College head coach Craig McMillan says: “Skylar has a tremendous work ethic and is a very humble person. Because of his work ethic and talent level, he improved a lot in his two years, and he will continue to improve. He’s a phenomenal shooter. It’s a big adjustment from a JC to the WCC’s level but he definitely has the talent, in my opinion, to make a smooth transition.”
