Film Study: Cameron Chambers

Michigan State has its 2016 class under way with Chambers. We look at his game off his film as a sophomore. Spoiler: We like him.

Michigan State is busy putting together a solid 2015 class, but got its 2016 class started Friday.

Erial (N.J.) Timber Creek wide receiver Cameron Chambers got the ball rolling for the Spartans, as he picked them over offers from Alabama, Ohio State, Michigan and more.

SpartanDigest.com takes a look at the talented wide out and what he brings to the Spartans as he gets the class started:

The Good

The first thing to notice about Chambers is his size. He is every bit of 6-foot-3 and 200 pounds and you see it as he moves down the field. He looks like a college wide receiver already and has the skill set to match.

He is fluid, long and athletic and gest down the field with ease, getting off the line with good burst and being tough to press on the line because of his strength and size. In space, Chambers is good at breaking away from defenders, being elusive, but above all is good at breaking through tackles and working for extra yards.

He shows good hands and ability on short, intermediate and deep routes. Impressively, he plays with good awareness on the sideline and does a good job making plays all over the field.

Chambers uses his size well down the field, pinpointing the ball high and catching it over defensive backs – again, thanks to his size.

The Bad

There is not a lot that Chambers is not good at, but his routes are going to need some refining. The routes used are pretty basic as are the concepts, which is to be expected at the high school level.

A question with most high school receivers is how willing are they to get into the blocking game. With his build, Chambers should have no issue being an effective blocker in the run game, but will be do it? That always is something to wonder.

While Chambers’ size is ideal right now, with two more years of high school, he will need to be careful not to get too big.
