The Rutgers search for a hungry, 2018 quarterback took offensive coordinator Jerry Kill to California. When Kill arrived this morning at Kerman (Calif.) High, he instantly liked what he saw.
A few hours and a phone call later and 6-foot-4, 205-pound quarterback Sean Chambers has his first scholarship opportunity.
“I talked to coach Kill on the phone, and he just said he was going to offer me a full ride,” Chambers said. “It was pretty cool. It means a lot. I had him (at my school) today, and when I called him, he offered me. He said he likes how I move and my body and size.”
Chambers has been in touch with Kill since before spring evaluation started.
“We didn't talk about my performance (this morning) because we can't talk in person but I like Jerry Kill a lot. He's a great coach. He turned around the Minnesota program quickly. We talked about his offense a while ago, and it's some spread and some two by two stuff. That's what I run in high school. It feels like the perfect offense.”
With the offer less than two hours old, Chambers admitted his knowledge of Rutgers as a school is limited. He has interest in a campus visit.
“I can tell you I'll definitely learn a lot more in the next few days,” he said. “I know Rutgers is a great school, and that's important. I'm looking for schools that have my major of kinesiology.”
Rutgers was the first offer for Chambers. His other schools of interest include Fresno State, Army, Nevada and Utah.
“My biggest strength is running the ball,” Chambers said. “I would describe myself as someone that would do whatever it takes for the betterment of the team. I'll do anything I need to do for a team to win. If a play breaks down on third and five, I will run to get that first down or make the throw I always like going into games prepared. I like knowing coverages before I go to the line of scrimmage.”
