USC secondary coach Torrian Gray has become a major player for CB Kyron Chambers (6-0 195) of Dallas. Gray offered Chambers last week and since then he and his defensive staff have been on him hard. That has put the Gamecocks in a position of prominence with Chambers who is planning to make a visit in the next two to three months.
“I like South Carolina, really,” Chambers said. “I like their culture and I’m getting to know about South Carolina. I’m waiting until the restrictions are up so I can visit. I like it so far. Everything is going good and as of right now they are a top one with me. My top five basically is South Carolina, Indiana, Oklahoma State, Cal and Arizona.”
Gray has not yet done a virtual visit with the Gamecocks but that will come at some point. He has done several Facetime calls with Gray. From those, Chambers has gotten a clear read on what the Gamecock coach things of him as a player.
“He likes my physicality, the way I can run, the way I show my expression in my style of play in my film,” Chambers said. “He feels I can play all three positions physically and mentally. We’ve been talking more about technique. And he’s seen that I can run also. That’s one thing he loves about me. He just loves everything about me, him and his whole coaching staff. He said I was a great football player.”
Chambers also has been judging Gray thru their conversations, and he sees a coach who he could play for, and someone who would be more to him than just a coach.
“One thing that stood out was me actually talking to him about football,” Chambers said. “He talked to me about the experience he had coaching in the league (NFL) and everything he did in college. He’s just done a lot of things that I’m actually looking for. I’m looking for a school with a coach like him, a coach that’s going to be over me, a mentor, like a father but as a coach. He’s real. He’s kind of similar to the coach I have now. I know that he’ll look out for me in the long run in college.”
Chambers said he’s looking forward to his first conversation with head coach Shane Beamer and defensive coordinator Clayton White. He’s also working on taking an in-person visit with USC once the dead period is lifted.
Some of his other offers are Georgia Tech, Texas Tech, Washington State, Cincinnati, San Diego State, Liberty, Houston, SMU and Syracuse. Chambers is rated as a three-star prospect in the 247Sports Composite and is ranked the #45 cornerback nationally in the 2022 class. Last season he had over 40 tackles with 3 interceptions.
