Former Dallas (Tex.) South Oak Cliff standout Kyron Chambers left TCU after one season with the Horned Frogs, entering the transfer portal. Now, he’s transferring to SMU, the 6-0, 195-pound defensive back announced.
Defensive back is a position SMU wanted to address this offseason. The Mustangs did that with Chambers, a boost long-term at the position who officially visited this weekend.
In 2022, Chambers played in five games as a true freshman, but did not record a tackle. Chambers was squarely in the two-deep this spring with TCU, earning some reps with the first team.
SMU has a revamped secondary with numerous transfers added to the fold. Chambers brings another jolt of talent and even versatility in the secondary.
Coming out of high school, Chambers helped SOC advance to and win the 2021 State Championship game. He was a Texas District 6-5A Division II first-team selection at cornerback as a junior. He owns a personal best 11.03 100-meter time as a senior.
According to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies, Chambers was a three-star prospect, ranking as the No. 441 overall prospect and No. 45 cornerback nationally.
On3 was extremely high on Chambers. On3 ranked him as the No. 275 overall prospect, No. 30 cornerback and No. 50 prospect in Texas. He held offers from Arizona, Indiana, Oklahoma State, South Carolina and others.
SMU continues strong transfer portal run
SMU’s landed one of the best transfer hauls in the country this offseason. Chambers is the latest addition that elevates that group even more.
Chambers joins an impressive SMU transfer class. A large Miami contingent is headed to the Hilltop, including offensive lineman Jakai Clark, wide receiver Key’Shawn Smith, defensive lineman Jordan Miller, defensive lineman Elijah Roberts, running back Jaylan Knighton and wide receiver Romello Brinson.
Texas State tight end Micah Hilts, Texas punter Isaac Pearson, Colorado defensive back Keyshon Mills, North Texas defensive end Cam Robertson, Temple linebacker Kobe Wilson, Texas offensive lineman Logan Parr, Texas A&M offensive lineman PJ Williams and running back LJ Johnson, Liberty transfers Chris Megginson and Ahmad Walker, Fresno State transfer defensive back Cale Sanders, Missouri transfer offensive lineman Hyrin White, Iowa quarterback transfer Alex Padilla, West Virginia transfer defensive back Charles Woods and Stanford defensive back Jonathan McGill are the other transfer additions for SMU.
