Early years

Chung is of Chinese Jamaican descent, his father being half-Han Chinese, half-Afro-Jamaican and mother Afro-Jamaican. He has four brothers and three sisters. Chung's mother, Sophia George-Chung, was a top Jamaican reggae artist in the 1980s. Her song, "Girlie Girlie," released in 1985, was a number one hit in Jamaica and made it into the Top 10 in the United Kingdom.[1]

Chung attended Rancho Cucamonga High School in Rancho Cucamonga, California, where he played football as a safety and wide receiver and was a two-time All-League pick.

College career

Chung enrolled at the University of Oregon in 2004 at age 17. After redshirting in 2004, Chung took over at the "rover" position in 2005, ranking second on the team with 91 tackles (5 solo), as he caused a fumble and deflected five passes. He earned Pacific-10 Conference honorable mention honors, and a spot on the Sporting News Freshman All-American Team. In 2006, Chung once again earned Pac-10 honorable mention, finishing third on the team with 84 tackles, two sacks, and four interceptions.

As a junior, Chung was named Second-team All-American and First-team All-Pac 10 Conference. He received the Gordon E. Wilson Award, given to the team's top special teams player. He averaged 22.3 yards on nine kickoff returns while leading the Ducks with a career-high 117 tackles (71 solos), adding 7.5 stops for loss. He broke up nine passes and was credited with a pair of interceptions.

Chung garnered Third-team All-American accolades in addition to making the All-Pac 10 Conference First-team for the second consecutive year in 2008. Along with offensive lineman Max Unger, the pair set the school record with 51 consecutive starting assignments. He had 92 tackles (58 solos) in 13 games, coming up with two sacks among his 6.5 stops for loss. He caused and recovered a fumble, batted down seven passes and returned his only interception 31 yards for a touchdown.

Chung holds the distinction of starting more games than any other defensive player in Oregon history, having started 51 straight games during his collegiate career.[2]
