2019 ATH Steele Chambers talks Michigan

Multi-sport athlete Chambers likes what he sees with Michigan

NCAA Football: Florida at Michigan Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Steele Chambers, the 2019 athlete out of Roswell, Georgia, has had a terrific start to his junior campaign.

Chambers has had limited carries, since he plays both ways, but has 42 carries and 6.7 yards per carry with 7 touchdowns in three games. Chambers plays linebacker on defense and has 15 tackles and 2 forced fumbles.

Since Chambers is only a junior, he still has plenty of time to make a decision. But he really likes what he sees with Michigan, one of the many schools he holds an offer from.

“So far I like Michigan, Stanford, Clemson, Ohio State and USC,” Chambers said. “But Stanford and Michigan have the upper hand right now.

“Michigan has recruited me really well, I have contact information for every coach and they answer any question I have or my family has,” Chambers said on what sticks out with Michigan. “I also communicate with some 2019 commits and I am not going to lie, Chris Hinton committing there sways things in their favor because I really respect Chris and his family.”

Even though Stanford and Michigan have the upper hand, Clemson also stands out to Steele.

“Clemson is close and they are the defending champs, I love the energy Dabo brings and they have kept close contact with me,” Chambers said.

Chambers also excels on the baseball field. He recently got moved to center field and is ranked in the top 10 for outfielders in the southeast. He also recently played in the Perfect Game National Showcased and excelled.

“If I did get drafted for baseball I would weigh my options, but it would take a lot to take me away from college football,” Chambers said.

Chambers wants to make a college decision by May or June. Things that will factor into his decision include the football program, coaching staff, recruits, depth chart, where teams see him playing and being able to play baseball.

Chambers plans to visit Stanford, Michigan, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Auburn and Wisconsin this fall.
