The Stats: Sadat Chambers was an all-state and all-region performer as a junior at Central High School. He had 13 carries for 202 yards and two touchdowns in the state championship game and compiled 1,031 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns as a quarterback and running back. Chambers was recruited to Clemson by Dabo Swinney and he chose the Tigers over South Carolina and Virginia Tech.

Strength: Chambers is a punishing defender that has experience both as a defensive back and as a quarterback. He has excellent speed, and he isn't afraid to deliver the big hit on wide receivers going across the middle of the field. Just ask his future teammate, Clemson signee Rendrick Taylor, who was crushed by the smaller Chambers when Central faced off against Marlboro County during the early part of his senior season.

Why Clemson? "I really like Coach Bowden and Coach Swinney," said Chambers. "Coach Swinney told me at the time that I was taking a gamble if I didn't go ahead and commit when I did, so I went ahead and did and never really looked back after that. I think like me as a defensive back, but I could get a look at running back first. Either way, it doesn't really matter. I'm just happy that I got the whole process over with."

Tidbit: Clemson was the first school to offer Chambers a scholarship, and in the end that was one of the biggest factors in his decision to sign with the Tigers on signing day. "They were always there with me," said Chambers. "Coach Swinney was always straight up with me and I really liked talking with the coaches on my official visit. After my official visit, there were never any doubts."

High School Coach Says: "Pound for pound, you won't find a tougher football player than the Sadat Chambers," said Central head coach Joey Mangum. "He did just about everything for us while he was here. Clemson got a good player when they signed him."
