    RB STEELE CHAMBERS
    2019 in review: Chambers was on the field for 33 snaps, playing running back in three games against Cincinnati, Miami (Ohio) and Rutgers. He also played special teams in the blowout victory versus Nebraska. He had 19 carries for 135 yards and a touchdown.

    A look toward 2020: As Eleven Warriors’ own Dan Hope wrote on Tuesday, Chambers has a chance to secure carries – or even start – if he has a strong offseason. Without J.K. Dobbins, the Buckeyes have a gigantic question at running back. Master Teague, Marcus Crowley, Demario McCall and Miyan Williams will be in the mix. But none of them are sure things. Chambers, the No. 231 overall prospect in 2019, has a chance to break through in the next seven months.

    Long-term outlook: Much of Chambers’ long-term outlook will be determined by his role in 2020. As a June enrollee, he’s getting his first full offseason as a Buckeye. Should he take advantage of that and either start or split carries, his college career would take off at a rapid pace. If not, he wouldn’t have to fret. Ohio State isn’t exactly teeming with depth at running back, meaning Chambers wouldn’t have to wait long for his time.

    STEELE CHAMBERS (REDSHIRT FRESHMAN)
    With Teague getting hurt the first practice of March, Crowley already on the mend, Williams not yet enrolled and Sermon not yet in the plans, Chambers expected to get a host of carries in the spring. Instead, the coronavirus pandemic sent everybody home prematurely.

    Still, as the one returner without injury concerns, Chambers is an under-the-radar pick to ascend up the depth chart in the preseason. Once recruited by Clemson as a linebacker, he's a bit of a different type of athlete than those in the running back room with him. In his redshirt season, the Georgia native played 33 offensive snaps, rushing 19 times for 135 yards and a touchdown.

    Chambers, provided he stays healthy, should get a chance to have a significant uptick in touches in 2020, potentially setting himself up well for the following year, too.

    RB: STEELE CHAMBERS
    Chambers isn’t as under-the-radar as he would have been before Master Teague got injured this spring, as that put the spotlight on him as Ohio State’s only healthy scholarship running back at the time. But Chambers lost his chance to really take advantage of that opportunity when the Buckeyes’ final 12 spring practices were canceled, and the spotlight quickly shifted to Trey Sermon when Sermon announced his transfer to Ohio State from Oklahoma.

    Sermon will likely sit atop the Buckeyes’ running back depth chart when they return to the practice field, and Teague and Marcus Crowley could potentially be ahead of Chambers in the running back pecking order too if they have recovered from their injuries. But Sermon has never practiced in an Ohio State uniform, and Teague (Achilles) and Crowley (ACL) are both coming back from serious injuries. Chambers still has a very real chance to earn a substantial role in Ohio State’s running back rotation this season, and if he can do that, he could be a key contributor in the Buckeyes’ offense for years to come.

    Fifth-year senior Demario McCall is also a sleeper candidate to make an impact at running back this year, potentially in a situational capacity as a passing-down back, but he began the spring practicing at slot receiver.

    • Says Steele Chambers "ran with good pad level." He continues: "I thought he flashed a little bit."
