Is Louisville an option for Lee Chambers?

Mississippi State commit Lee Chambers is keeping his options open and has two other SEC visits scheduled. The three-star running back is interested in Louisville and is considering making a visit to see the Cardinals. Can Louisville get Chambers on campus?

Is Coffeeville, Mississippi three-star running back Lee Chambers an option for Louisville?

Possibly, but Bobby Petrino and his staff clearly have their work cut out for them to get the current Mississippi State commit on campus for a visit.

"I'm still committed to Mississippi State but I made a commitment to them very early and I'm still keeping my options open to make sure I made the right decision," Chambers explained Sunday night.

Louisville assistant Reggie Johnson keeps in frequent contact with the 6'0, 190-pound Chambers and the Cardinals recent success has piqued his interest. "They're undefeated right now and ranked real high in the polls," Chambers said. "I want to go to a big time program and their success interests me."

Chambers has set up two official visits. He'll visit Tennessee (Jan. 12) and South Carolina (Jan. 19) and he's considering Southern Miss, Miami and Louisville for his final two visits. While Johnson and the Cardinals have been pushing to get an official visit from Chambers, who has rushed for nearly 1,500 yards and 14 touchdowns this year, it's clear Louisville has their work cut out for them.

"It's not looking very good for Louisville that I will visit there," Chambers said. "I'm leaning towards visits to Southern Miss and Miami. I think Louisville started recruiting me a little too late."

Chambers said he's looking for a program that likes to run the ball a lot.
