In the days leading up to Western Michigan’s Cotton Bowl appearance, coach Fleck and his staff received some positive news on the recruiting trail. Just days after landing a 3-star defensive end, they add yet another 3-star defensive lineman to their recruiting class.

DT Tyrone Chambers announced his commitment on Tuesday evening via Twitter.

The 6-foot-5 325 pound recruit resides in Cleveland, Ohio where he currently attends Brush high school.

He chose the Broncos over reported offers from Cincinnati, Akron, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Iowa State, Miami, Ohio, Toledo, and Purdue.

This is now the third school that Chambers has been verbally committed to throughout his recruiting process. Originally he committed to Toledo on November 2nd, 2015. He ultimately flipped his commitment to Cincinnati this past June. His intent was to enroll at Cincinnati, however that plan was flipped upside down when Tommy Tuberville was relieved of his duties. Chambers announced his de-commitment from Cincinnati earlier this month.

Chambers shows great tenacity in his highlights especially for his size. His ability to clog up running lanes quickly will give him the opportunity to develop into one of the MAC’s most feared defensive tackles. He also has shown prowess on special team in block field goals which should help him see the field early in his career.
