Rutgers may be new to Kerman (Calif.) quarterback Sean Chambers, but the relationships go back farther than a May 3 verbal scholarship offer.
Chambers has been in touch with offensive coordinator Jerry Kill for months and running backs coach Lester Erb for more than a year.
“I've actually been talking to coach Erb since he was at Nevada,” Chambers said. “That was kind of my foot I the door but now I'm getting recruited by coach Kill. We still talk a lot, just about how my day is going and how I'm doing as a person.
Chambers celebrates the end of his junior year at Kerman with the beginning of a college tour. After a trip to San Diego State this weekend, it is wheels up to New Jersey for his first sight of Rutgers football.
Rutgers offered Chambers in May, and remained aggressive after Jalen Chatman's commitment at the position.
“They've been loyal and honest with me,” Chambers said. “They've said they wanted me since day one. Coach Kill told me the plans for their class on the same day Chatman committed. I'm totally fine with competing.”
Chambers will be on the Rutgers campus all day Thursday.
“I just want to see the atmosphere around Rutgers and the school itself and the town around it,” Chambers said. “I'm looking forward to speaking with coach [Chris] Ash for the first time in person. We've spoken on the phone but never in person.”
