Since announcing his top five earlier in the week 2016 Rivals100 wide receiver Cameron Chambers has gone underground. Today the Sicklerville (N.J.) Timber Creek star chose Michigan State over Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio State and Alabama.
"I'm going to pick Michigan State," said the 6-foot-2, 201-pound Chambers. "I decided to pick them because I felt at home with the coaching staff and I feel like it was the right fit for me. After being on campus and getting to visit with them I just felt at home. I love the coaching staff and coach Samuel, the receivers coach. I really like the tradition behind Michigan State and once I got done talking to the academic staff I felt like it was a school I could go to, get on the field and pursue my master's degree. That's important to me."
Chambers visited East Lansing last week and clearly enjoyed his time there.
"I liked their stadium," he said. "I got a chance to check it out. Once I stepped on the field I felt like it was a stadium I would be happy doing work in. I liked the campus too. It's a good size and it had everything that I was looking for as far as academic buildings in comparison to the football facilities. Everything wasn't too close or too spread out. I got a good feel just walking around campus. It felt like the right place.
The coaching staff and their ability to develop bigger wide receivers impressed Chambers.
"I think that coach Samuel is a phenomenal receivers coach," Chambers said. "When I get there I feel like he's going to help continue to work on my craft and take my take it to a high level. I know they were thinking about playing on the outside, inside and both sides. For me that sounded good."
Chambers is excited to move forward with this season while trying to recruit for the Spartans.
"I'm excited to help get some more people to join the program and build a relationship with the guys there," he said. "From here on out it is about attacking this season and getting a state championship while maintaining my relationship with the coaching staff.
"I'm very solid. I had good criteria of what I was looking for and I selected certain schools to visit," said Chambers. "I used that to find the right place in Michigan State so I'm very solid. It was a tough decision, with out a doubt."
Chambers was one of the few underclassmen to participate in the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge presented by Under Armour.
