Four-star WR Cam Chambers has big plans for Michigan State


Four-star Michigan State wide receiver commit has big plans for his time in East Lansing.

As Michigan State Spartan fans know, head coach Mark Dantonio loves his wide receivers. Starting to churn out NFL-caliber wide outs every year, Dantonio has brought guys like Devin Thomas, Keshawn Martin and now Tony Lippett to the NFL. Next up? How about four-star wide receiver commit for the class of 2016, Cam Chambers.

The 6-foot-3 wide receiver from New Jersey has the size, speed, route running abilities and a high football IQ to make it at the collegiate level and beyond.

Chambers was the first big-time recruit for the 2016 class and the best receiving prospect since Aaron Burbridge in the 2012 class. While he has plans to record over 1,000 receiving yards, stay healthy and win a state championship.

Once he gets to East Lansing in January as an early enrollee, he has big plans for his MSU career.

“As a Spartan, I want to have a whole lot of fun,” Chambers said. “I want to get my bachelor’s in three and a half and get my master’s after. I want to be able to be the best that I can. I want to crack the lineup freshman year.”

Those are just the individual goals and just a tidbit of what he brings to the table. As an excellent route runner and with a top-end football IQ, Chambers knows he will have a lot of work to do in order to accomplish the team goals.

When asked if a national title was the ultimate goal, Chambers responded, “Without a doubt. The first time I get on the field I’ll be thinking about it. National championship is the ultimate goal. We [the incoming recruits] are definitely trying. The recruits right now are thinking it. We definitely want a national championship.”

As for beginning his collegiate career with a first-year starting quarterback, Chambers isn’t worried.

“All the quarterbacks are good,” he said with a laugh. “They all throw tight spirals and the passes are so precise.”

He’s right. Michigan State is bringing in four-star Messiah deWeaver, who Chambers has a great relationship with already, along with already having Brian Lewerke for 2015, Damion Terry and Tyler O’Connor.

Worried about his relationship with the coaching staff? Don’t be. “[The relationship] has grown so much since the time I committed until now,” he said.

When asked if Dantonio and the rest of the staff have talked about early playing time, he seemed pretty excited. “They have. One reason I chose MSU is because I’ll have a chance and come in and play right away.”

As a kid who gets professional advice from NFL guys like Mohamed Sanu and Shonn Green, Chambers has a pretty good chance to succeed.

In fact, Sanu has become a good friend of Chambers and they even text back and forth, exchanging tips and going over game film.

It’s safe to say this kid has a bright future in the Green & White. What about the rest of the 2016 class in which the young receiver has vowed to be a top-10 group?

“I would say right now the chances [of being a top-10 class] are getting stronger and stronger. It’s all been word of mouth. Right now, we are bringing in an incredible class. If the guys who say they’re coming are actually coming, it will be a top-10 class.”

Chambers also mention trying to lure four-star DE Josh King as well as four-star DE Auston Robertson to kick off the defensive side of the things for the class.

Not many kids are as humble and as hungry to succeed as Cam is, but one thing is for sure, he will succeed at Michigan State and five years down the line, we will be talking about one of the best receivers in school history, on and off the field.

If that doesn’t get Spartan Nation excited, I don’t know what will.
