The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Chambers — who hails from Roswell, Georgia, Blessed Trinity Catholic — is considered the 16th-best athlete and No. 243 prospect overall in the Class of 2019, though he's expected to play running back at the next level. He committed to the Buckeyes in mid-April over more than two dozen offers from programs such as Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Penn State, Stanford and Tennessee.
Chambers will be joined on the East Squad by five-star center pledge Harry Miller, four-star offensive guard commit Doug Nester and four-star safety pledge “Rocket” Ronnie Hickman, while five-star wide receiver commit Garrett Wilson will play for the West.
Ohio State continues to be well-represented at the All-American Bowl, having led the nation in commits invited to the game the last three years running. This year's rendition will be held at the Alamodome in San Antonio on Jan. 5 and be broadcast live on NBC at 1 p.m. EST.
