2014 Review
After enrolling as a quarterback, Chambers moved to wide receiver and appeared in four games for a total of just over five snaps per contest.

*****

2015 Preview
When he enrolled Chambers believed his future would be at quarterback, but that didn’t work out. So, three years later, he’s now putting his considerable gifts to work at receiver. And he may still be a season away from finding a consistent role at that position as he’s the third string option behind a pair of seniors (Max McCaffrey and Ryan Smith).

*****

TDD Projection
While he’s waiting on a clearer depth chart a season from now, Chambers will likely still get an opportunity to put his athleticism and size (6’3, 220) to good use in the redzone in the early season. What he does with those early - and likely sporadic - opportunities will go a long way to determining his effectiveness and continued climb up the depth chart in the spring of 2016..

How he ended up in Durham
Chambers was the first commit from the class of 2013, picking Duke back on March 17th, 2012. Before picking Duke, he was recruited by North Carolina, NC State, East Carolina, and UNC Charlotte.
