Earlier in the day, it was reported that Nebraska football offered FIU wide receiver Tyrese Chambers. Now, it appears as though they visited him Friday.
Chambers was a productive receiver for FIU last season. As a sophomore, he recorded 45 receptions for 1,074 yards and nine touchdowns last season. He was one of 30 players in the country to go over the 1,000-yard receiving mark.
His career has been a little bit of a whirlwind. He began his career at Fort Scott Junior College in Kansas. He did not see action until he took his talents to Sacred Heart in the fall of 2019. He recorded 50 catches for 811 yards and eight touchdowns for the Crusaders.
Now, it appears he is looking at coming to Nebraska. Sean Beckton appears to be the primary coach in contact with him.
Measuring in at 6-foot-1, 175 pounds, Chambers appears to be a very shifty player and is a good route-runner. In addition to that, his athleticism will be something that Nebraska football would be able to utilize.
Particularly when you look at the builds and skill sets of receivers that Mickey Joseph has worked with in the past, he could develop Chambers into a game-changing receiver in the Nebraska offense.
That playmaking ability is something that Nebraska football is going to need to have at the wide receiver position. Especially with Mickey Joseph in the fold now, that gives them the opportunity to really go out and get some weapons. One has to wonder if Joseph coming here will influence Chambers’ decision to do so as well.
I’m going to watch his recruitment closely, as I believe he could definitely be an impact player for Nebraska football. That’s the beauty of the transfer portal. Now, coaches can get a player who is often well-developed and one who is ready to make an impact on the program. Chambers has obviously shown that he can make an impact, and this would be a major get for a Nebraska football program looking to turn the corner.
