The Tale

Don't let the offer sheet deceive you. Based on his performance this weekend at the annual Peach Jam Championship, this is a solid pickup for Chambers and crew. Dread went on an unofficial visit on June 15, and has been in contact with the coaching staff constantly since. In his own words, Dread stated that Chambers and staff have been in constant contact with him since, and it all culminated this weekend when he finally committed to the Lions.

At 6-4, Dread is projected to be a combo guard who can space things out on the wing with his shooting abilities, but is also capable of banging bodies down low. Coming out of DC, Dread's commitment could help Chambers in his recruitment of the DMV in the future. While he is the first player to commit to PSU from Gonzaga High School, he is the second commitment from Team Takeover (with Josh Reaves being the first).

With Myles' commitment, there are now three remaining scholarships for the 2018 class. Welcome to Penn State, Myles!
