SALT LAKE CITY – Farmington High star Collin Chandler added another accomplishment to his decorated prep career, Gatorade Player of the Year.

This is the 37th year Gatorade has presented the player of the year recognitions. It’s the first Gatorade Player of the Year award for Chandler, who averaged 21.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.7 steals per game for the Phoenix.

Chandler will continue his basketball career with the BYU Cougars. He’s the second Gatorade Player of the Year from Utah in three seasons to sign with BYU since Mark Pope took over as head coach. The other is Fremont High’s Dallin Hall. Hall won the award in 2020.

Last November, Chandler picked BYU over offers from Utah, Stanford, Arizona, Gonzaga, and others. He plans to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints before enrolling at BYU.

Chandler is rated as the No. 33 prospect in the nation by the 247Sports Composite ratings for the class of 2022. At 6-foot-4, 170-pounds, Chandler rates as the No. 6 combo guard in the country.
