TALENTED Corowa-Rutherglen teenager Will Chandler has signed with Glenelg.
The former Murray Bushranger is hoping the move will help keep him under the notice of talent scouts as he pursues his AFL dream.
Chandler relocated to Adelaide last week and has already trained several times with his new teammates.
"I just want to keep improving as a footballer and give myself every chance I can to play at the elite level," Chandler said.
"I had a few discussions with Glenelg who are keen to give me every opportunity to develop and play at the highest level possible.
"There is still a bit of uncertainty surrounding the VFL and the NEAFL next year and the make-up of the competition.
"The SANFL is regarded as one of the strongest competitions outside the AFL, so it was enticing from that aspect to move to Adelaide and give it a crack.
"My sister Sarah is attending university over here as well so I have moved in with her."

Chandler was widely touted as a future draft prospect after an outstanding season for the Bushrangers as a bottom-age prospect.
He underlined his undoubted talent after creating history and becoming the youngest debutant at Corowa-Rutherglen in 2017, aged 15 years and seven months.
The left-footer booted five goals on debut.
He also kicked six-goals last year against North Albury in his second senior match for the Roos.
Chandler turns 19 this weekend and is the son of Jeff who played 50 matches with North Melbourne.
He is also the nephew of Sydney Swans premiership coach John Longmire.
Glenelg won the flag last year under coach Mark Stone.
Stone is the brother of Wangratta premiership coach Dean.
Glenelg is on the lookout for a new coach after Stone recently accepted the senior assistant position under Brisbane Lions coach Chris Fagan.
