One of the most talked about wide receivers in the 2016 class is Cameron Chambers. The rising sophomore who already has offers from Purdue, Rutgers, Temple and Toledo just transferred to Sicklerville (N.J.) Timber Creek team up with a four-star receiver committed to Rutgers.
"For me, this is like I'm coming home," said the 6-foot-3, 195-pound Chambers. "I'm originally from southern New Jersey and I always wanted to play high school football in south Jersey. Obviously, some great talent has come out of Timber Creek. I'll get to work with Adonis Jennings at receiver and learn from him. We have an opportunity to build on a relationship that started in little league football. (2015 stand out cornerback) Kareem Ali is a good player and I can go against him and guys like him in practice. We can both fine-tune our skills."
Chambers' father, a well-known coach in the area, is an administrator at nearby Atco (N.J.) Winslow Township.
"My father is a long time football, basketball and track coach," he said. "These past couple of years he has moved to the administration at Winslow. He coached some great athletes and it was great for me to sit right next to my dad and see what it was like for great athletes to make it to the next level."
As for his recruitment, Chambers is still getting his name out there.
"What helped me a lot was when I went on the tour with Next Level Nation," said Chambers. "I got a chance to see the schools and the coaches could see me and evaluate me. I would say Rutgers, Penn State and Ohio State, Purdue Indiana and Michigan State all liked me."
More than a few Timber Creek alumni have played college football at Rutgers and, with that early offer from the Scarlet Knights, Chambers will continuously be linked to Rutgers.
"This move is going to allow me to continue to build my relationship with Rutgers," he said. "I have a chance to step back and look at everything and say I've really been blessed with an offer from Rutgers, Purdue, Temple and Toledo. At the Rutgers camp I got a chance to meet the coaches and see what Rutgers is all about. It's a school I like right now."
Chambers does not have any visits planned right now.
