One of the Peach State’s top 2019 athletes returned to Clemson on Saturday night for the Auburn game.
Roswell (Ga.) Blessed Trinity Catholic’s Steele Chambers (pictured left) made his first visit to Clemson since 2015 and left very impressed by what the Tigers have to offer.
“I visited Clemson as a freshman but this was my first visit with the new facility,” Chambers told The Clemson Insider.
Chambers took a liking to the Tigers’ $55 million Allen N. Reeves Football Complex.
“I love the new facility,” he said. “It is state of the art and very comfortable.”
Chambers (6-2, 215) carries offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Mississippi State, North Carolina, Stanford, Tennessee and Wisconsin among others.
He had the opportunity to speak with Clemson co-defensive backs coaches Mickey Conn and Mike Reed while on campus.
“I think they are showing a lot of interest,” Chambers said of Clemson. “It’s an amazing program and it would be an honor to play for coach Dabo.”
Along with Clemson, schools such as Alabama and Penn State are showing interest.
Chambers is looking to make his college decision next summer.
Clemson would be well positioned in his recruitment should it move on an offer in the future.
“A lot stands out about Clemson,” he said. “I love their aggressiveness, the coaching staff is very personable, and they are committed to winning. Academics are extremely important to me and they seem to be committed to that as well.”
As a sophomore last season, Chambers recorded 74 tackles and six interceptions from the safety position. He also ran for 1,486 yards and 21 touchdowns on offense.
