Tyrese Chambers no longer with Maryland football

Wide receiver Tyrese Chambers is no longer with the program as head coach Mike Locksley expanded on his departure during Tuesday’s press conference.

“They’re all personal reasons. Tyrese is one of those great kids that joined our program for a year. He left for personal reasons. He has a few things going on in his life that he felt he needs to take care of. We’re in full support of him. Still in school finishing up classes. Still has access to the academic stuff that we do for him. As with anything, when guys leave the program everyone leaves for whatever their own personal reasons and we’ll support Tyrese as he continues to move forward,” Locksley said on Tuesday.

While the news became public ahead of the Penn State game, a source told IBG that Chambers left the program during the bye week. Quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa turned to his five primary receivers against Northwestern, while Roman Hemby added six catches this past weekend. With his college career now complete, Chambers is expected to begin training for the 2024 NFL Draft.

Chambers nearly joined the program ahead of the 2022 season but ultimately became one of two wide receivers to transfer to Maryland earlier this offseason, joining former West Virginia product Kaden Prather, as head coach Mike Locksley and wide receiver coach Gunter Brewer restocked the room.

“This is a dream come true, man. This has been my dream school since I was a child. It took me a couple [of] years to get here, but I’m finally here, man. I’m finally here. I’m blessed and thankful,” Chambers said in the spring.

Chambers announced his transfer to Maryland back in December.

“The message was simple. Just come in and do what I’m supposed to do and my dreams will come true. It’s a lot of opportunities there,” Chambers told IBG.

Chambers started one game in six appearances during his brief stint with Maryland, posting 51 receiving yards and one touchdown on seven catches as he battled turf toe and a hyperextended knee. Chambers ends his college career with 2,482 career receiving yards and 22 touchdowns on 153 catches.
