Practices for many of the teams in the state of Texas start today, and for Corpus Christi (Texas) Calallen three-star quarterback Jordan Chambless it’s finally time to hang the baseball spikes up for the summer and strap on the helmet.
“I just got back from California,” Chambless, who is ranked as the nation’s No. 16 dual-threat quarterback, said. “I was out there for the Area Code games in front of 400 scouts. I think I really impressed some scouts and coaches. When I got back, I had a letter from Houston with a scholarship offer in it for baseball.”
Houston, one of the nation’s top baseball programs, has now offered the 6-foot-2, 200-pound Chambless a scholarship in both football and baseball. He has gridiron offers from Houston, Kansas and Rice, but interest might be starting to pick up from one of his major favorites.
“I heard that Texas was trying to get Rhett Bomar, but he’s now going to Oklahoma,” Chambless said. “Texas told me that I’m back on their list. I’ve talked to their coaches and I would love to get an offer from them. That’s kind of where I would like to go.”
Chambless did camp in Austin this summer and said he did a good job of impressing the Longhorn staff.
“That was my best camp,” he said. “I did a good job. I’m hopefully maybe back on their list. I just need to keep doing what I do.”
Chambless is also getting interest from Colorado, LSU, Nebraska, Penn State and Stanford. Calallen opens the season in the HEB Classic against San Marcus.
