Wisconsin Latest to Offer 2016 Receiver

Erial (N.J.) Timber Creek class of 2016 receiver Cameron Chambers added a Wisconsin offer Thursday, and he spoke about its significance with Scout.com.

Cameron Chambers was yet to speak to a member of the Wisconsin staff when he learned the program offered, but it certainly gave the Erial (N.J.) Timber Creek class of 2016 receiver the desire to learn more.

The 6-foot-2, 190-pound Chambers added the Badgers to a list of offers that include Temple, Rutgers, Arkansas and Purdue.

"Coach (Rob) Hinson pulled me to the side and broke the news to me," Chambers said. "For me, I was excited. It's a nice offer to have."

Chambers has 17 catches for 374 yards and four touchdowns in his first season at Timber Creek, and he likes Wisconsin's offensive style.

"Pro-style is definitely something I'll take a look at,' he said. "It's, ‘Ok, run the football and block and then that opens up play-action pass down the field, or run a dig or a curl, or a post.' But I know I may change next year what I'm looking for in an offense."

Chambers doesn't know much about the Badgers, but like so many other high school prospects in South Jersey, one thing is common knowledge.

"I know (running back) Ron Dayne went there, was an All-American there and played in the NFL," Chambers said. "He's from down in this area. I know they have good tradition, they run the football a lot, but they also have opportunities for receivers in their offense. It's definitely a school I want to get to know more about."

The offer from the Badgers came a few days after Arkansas extended one, and Chambers is still trying to grasp what it happening with his recruitment.

"It happened so fast," he said. "I just got Arkansas, and now I got Wisconsin. It gives me the extra motivation to keep working hard in the classroom, on the football field. It makes you feel good inside and make you want to keep doing what you're doing."
