It always puzzles me that a kid can claim his favorite team is Ohio State but mentions scUM as a place he possibly would like to play for. Just seems strange to me :shake:

Chambers Lists Four Offers
By Duane Long
Date: Jul 29, 2004

WR Mike Chambers of Cuyahoga Falls (Oh.) Walsh Jesuit has four solid offers so far. He also has his eyes on Ohio State for a visit.

One of Ohio's more underrated prospects is WR Mike Chambers of Cuyahoga Falls Walsh Jesuit. Chambers currently lists offers from Michigan State, West Virginia, Bowling Green, and Miami (Oh.). He camped this year at Penn State Nike and the Michigan senior camp.

"It went pretty well," he said of the Michigan camp. "I ran a 4.52 adjusted."

Unfortunately, he didn't know exactly what that meant.

"I really don't know," he said. "The guy just told me I ran a 4.52 adjusted."

At Penn Sate, he didn't run as well, but it wasn't his best day overall.

"I ran a 4.7, but I just didn't have it that day," he said.

All the schools that have offered are recruiting him as a receiver. He hasn't decided yet where he will take visits.

"I am really not quite sure where I will visit, but likely Michigan and Ohio State," he said.

Do any schools stand out?

"Michigan State so far," he said.

Duane really likes Chambers but it doesn't seem like the Bucks are showing much interest.

Stats not enough for Walsh Jesuit senior

Warriors' Chambers ranks victories at top

By Tom Gaffney

Beacon Journal staff writer

Walsh Jesuit's Mike Chambers is a highly recruited wide receiver whose most vital concerns are not statistics and fame.

``Getting a win is better... that's the best,'' said Chambers, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound senior. ``This is the year all the seniors have been waiting for. I want to win games and work to get us into the playoffs. Hopefully, we can get to state (finals).''

Chambers has received firm scholarship offers from Michigan State, West Virginia, Miami and Bowling Green as a wide receiver.

Yet he is not afraid to mix it up as a starting safety for the Warriors and to spread his talent around by serving as the backup punter and backup long-snapper.

``Mike is such a pleasant, team-oriented kid who does a lot of things for us,'' Warriors coach Gerry Rardin said.

``He has schools looking at him, but he does anything we ask him to help the team.''

That being said, there can be no doubt that his primary contributions to the team come as a wide receiver. After a solid sophomore season as a starter, he blossomed as a junior by catching 44 passes for 823 yards to help Walsh go 6-3.

His 2004 debut was more of the same, as he caught five passes for 179 yards and two touchdowns in a 34-7 home victory over Stow last Friday.

``He is amazing, the way he can get open,'' said senior quarterback Doug Snider, who has been throwing passes to Chambers for four years. ``He always seems to be able to beat his guy and he has such sure hands. I know if I have to throw it up and it's a `grab ball,' he is going to come down with it.''

Chambers, who is a third cousin of Miami Dolphins star Chris Chambers, relies on fundamentals as well as front-end speed (he runs the 40 in 4.5).

``He does all the little things,'' said Rardin, whose team plays Parma Padua at home tonight. ``He is so crisp on his routes and can get separation from defenders. He knows how to position his body on catches and can adjust to the ball while it is in the air.''

Chambers, who grew up in Ravenna and lives in Stow, said his biggest thrill as a receiver comes before the catch.

``I like the open field and having a kid one-on-one,'' Chambers said. ``I like to line up and see the reaction (of the defender). I like doing what I have to do to get open.''

Scoring touchdowns comes next in the progression -- and he knows the feeling of being on the other side of the ball as a starting safety on the Walsh defense.

``You are the last guy back there,'' he said. ``If someone breaks through or gets open deep, you have to stop them.''

Chambers went to Walsh in 2001 intending to be a running back, which he played in middle school.

But he asked to be moved to wide receiver as a freshman, because he did not think he had the build for running back.

His development at the position allowed him to start there on the varsity just one year later. Since last season, he has been attending football summer camps to work on his skills and showcase his talents.

The scholarship offers have come, but he said his decision is not immediately forthcoming.

``It was nice to get them (college offers),'' he said. ``I told them I wanted to wait a little bit. There is a lot to think about.''

Just as there is a lot to think about by defensive backs trying to contain him.

THE DIFFERENCE MAKER: Walsh Jesuit's Mike Chambers

Receiver knows importance of facing Bengals
Thursday, October 14, 2004
Tim Rogers
Plain Dealer Reporter
It is the biggest game of the season for Walsh Jesuit, which means it will need a big game from senior Mike Chambers.

No one knows that better than Chambers himself.

"We all need to play as well as we can," said Chambers, a standout wide receiver and defensive back. "This is the biggest game the seniors have played in during our careers here."

The opponent is reigning Division III state champion Benedictine, the top-ranked team in the Division III, Region 9 computer ratings. While Walsh Jesuit leads the all-time series, 5-4, the Bengals have won two of the last three meetings.

"From what we've seen on the videos, they don't have the running game that they had last year, but I think they are more well-rounded as a team," said Chambers, a cousin of former Bedford star Chris Chambers, who is now with the Miami Dolphins. "And that means we won't be able to concentrate on stopping one aspect of their team."

Now, perhaps, Chambers will get an idea of what it's like to be the other shoe. For the last two years, teams have tried to deal with Chambers' performance on both sides of the ball. He has victimized several teams with his pass-catching and pass-defending abilities.

"One of his biggest attributes is that he runs precise pass routes," said Walsh Jesuit coach Gerry Rardin, whose team has won five of seven games but probably can't afford another loss. "He has learned how to avoid the bump-and-jam tactics. He comes off the ball real well and he uses his body to shield the ball away from the defender."

Chambers, who said his cousin has proven to be an invaluable resource, has caught 41 passes for 981 yards and 10 touchdowns this season. He also has returned 13 kickoffs for a 21.5-yard average and 13 punts for a 14.5-yard average.

Chambers said he has received offers from Bowling Green, Kent State, Miami and Michigan State, which wanted to make him a defensive back. He has no interest in that and is hoping recruiters from West Virginia and Purdue see it the same way.

We missed out on Chris Chambers and look how he turned out! Hopefully we get one of the top-notch WR's we're looking at right now, but if not this kid sounds pretty explosive and I would love to have him.
