2019 ATH Steele Chambers out of Roswell, Georgia, was offered in April, by the Wolverines. “I was shocked, I didn’t visit Michigan yet, but Coach Partridge said they wanted to offer me, so I immediately scheduled a visit.”

“I really enjoyed my visit at Michigan, they have a really nice school, plus their education is second to none,” Chambers told MnB. “I got to speak with Coach Jim and Jay Harbaugh and also Coach Partridge.”

Chambers has offers from: Michigan, Michigan State, Tennessee, South Carolina, Wake Forest, Pittsburgh, USC, and others.

“I really want to narrow my school list down, after my season, and then make a decision next summer,” Chambers said on his recruitment status.

“Right now I really like Michigan, Stanford, Clemson, Florida State, Tennessee, and South Carolina. I’m still keeping my options very open, I haven’t taken many visits yet.”

Chambers named Stanford and Clemson as teams that really stick out to him along with Michigan.

“Stanford, the education is incredible and a strong football program, Clemson isn’t too far from home and I really enjoy the coaching staff, Michigan was just very impressive, it felt like home.”

Chambers ran for 1,486 yards and 21 touchdowns on 213 carries during his sophomore year. On defense Chambers had 74 tackles from the safety position, and 6 interceptions.

“My coaches tell me I am very patient running the ball, and you always need to be patient as a running back, also they say my pass catching is very good, and I think baseball really helps me with that.” Chambers on what his strengths are.

“I can get better in many areas, but I want to get, bigger and faster in my last two seasons.”

Chambers not only excels athletically with football, he also excels in baseball, too. He is in Fort Myers for a Junior National Showcase with top underclassmen in the nation. Adding to that, Chambers gets it done in the classroom, Chambers has a 4.0 and hopes to go into Finance and Business in college.
