An athletic, successful starting quarterback at the Football Championship Subdivision level has decided to walk on at NC State. Charleston Southern’s Jack Chambers has already enrolled and a source confirmed to The Wolfpacker that he would be joining the team.

Chambers is already listed in the NC State student directory.

NC State football is set to host Charleston Southern for its home opener Sept. 10 at Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh.

Chambers, 5-foot-10, 180 pounds, was named second-team All-Big South in 2021.

One of Chambers’ most noteworthy performances came at East Carolina, the same opponent and venue that NC State will open its 2022 campaign on Sept. 3. Against the Pirates last season, Chambers completed 38 of 61 passes for 405 yards and two touchdowns and also ran for 67 yards and a score.

That was a season-high in passing yards. His best rushing output came when he rushed for 110 yards at North Alabama, one of a pair of 100-yard rushing performances for Chambers during the season.

Overall, Chambers completed 230 of 417 passes for 2,490 yards and 17 touchdowns with 10 interceptions and ran 135 times for 477 yards and seven more scores in 10 games last season.

Chambers was a two-year starter at Charleston Southern and is a product of Parkview High in Lilburn, Ga.

Jack Chambers Adds To Quarterback Room

At NC State, Chambers will hope to enter into the competition to be star redshirt junior quarterback Devin Leary’s backup this season. Coming out of spring, that job belonged to third-year redshirt freshman Ben Finley.

On3 Consensus three-star quarterback signing MJ Morris from Carrollton (Ga.) High will join the equation when he arrives in the summer. Morris signed with NC State after also considering offers from Georgia Tech and Nebraska.

Redshirt freshman Aaron McLaughlin transferred to Jacksonville State, entering the portal prior to the start of spring practices, leaving NC State with three scholarship quarterbacks on the roster for next season.

NC State has not been active in the transfer portal this year due to tight scholarship numbers. The Wolfpack is pressed up against the 85 limit.

The Pack did add Maryland receiver Darryl Jones and Towson punter Shane McDonough. Both are super seniors this coming fall.
