Kerman High quarterback Sean Chambers needed only a weekend visit to decide which college he wants to play for.

Chambers, who de-committed from Big Ten school Rutgers on Monday morning, has verbally committed to play at Wyoming.

Chambers took an official visit to the Laramie, Wyo., campus over the weekend. He will be the second central San Joaquin Valley quarterback to play at Wyoming. Ex-Firebaugh High/Reedley College standout Josh Allen has led the Cowboys to a 3-2 record and 1-0 in the Mountain West and is a potential first-rond pick in next year’s NFL Draft.

“I like Laramie a lot, and the coaches,” Chambers said. “They have a long history developing quarterbacks and Wyoming has a really good program going right now.

“Seeing a Valley guy getting that much publicity from the NFL is a big thing for me. I thought it was pretty cool and maybe I can follow his footsteps and do the same thing.”

In five games for the Lions this season, Chambers has completed 31 of 77 passes for 634 yards and three touchdowns against three interceptions. On the ground, the senior has 57 carries for 580 yards and seven touchdowns.
