Fresno State gets signing day surprise in commitment from Merced defensive back Earl Chambers

Merced College defensive back Earl Chambers is Fresno State's one National Signing Day surprise so far.

Fresno State has received signatures from 18 recruits so far today, only one of which came unexpectedly.

Merced College defensive back Earl Chambers accepted a scholarship offer to stay in California and play for Fresno State. Chambers committed to UAB in the 2016 class, but ended up waiting until 2017 to make the jump to a four-year college. He fielded offers from the likes of Cincinnati and Eastern Carolina. Chambers is expected to join the Bulldogs as a safety.

Other changes in Fresno State's expected commits include quarterback Mark Salazar who made a last-minute flip to sign with San Diego State. Three Fresno State commits, Pesa TupaNate Jones and Clive Truschel remain committed but are expected to sign at a later date.

Fresno State is waiting on two more known recruits to make their decision today. Pullman (Washington) three-star tight end Ben Moos will decide between Fresno State and Cal at 11:30 a.m. PT and four-star Fresno (Calif.) defensive back Jaylon Johnson will decide at 3 p.m. PT.
