Desert Vista High School's gifted 6-foot-2 junior point guard prospect Tyrek Chambers is a superb talent that recently ventured to the state of Arizona via Brooklyn, New York, where he attended acclaimed Christ the King High School. Since moving to the state of Arizona, Chambers has quickly blossomed into one of the state's unique talents and among the elite overall prospects in the state, regardless of class.
Chambers recently was regarded as the top overall performer from the recent West Coast Elite Showcase organized by Ryan Silver and his staff.
Chambers is a budding star prospect that is a big-time scorer of the basketball from all 3 levels, and also is an excellent ball handler and passer. He is a complete offensive performer that is fundamentally sound and makes the game look easy. He makes players around him much better - an amazing attribute. He has a superb future ahead of him, and is worthy of serious college recruitment.
On Monday, Chambers officially received an offer from UNLV. He advised me that he also currently has offers from Cincinnati, Providence, UAB, New Mexico, Murray State and Oakland.
Chambers has not indicated any leaders at this point in his young career, so it will be very interesting to continue to see how his recruitment continues to develop over time.
Chambers has had to overcome serious obstacles in his life to get to this point. Chambers was shot several years ago and overcame a bullet wound to return to the basketball court, and dominate his competition. While a product of the city streets, Chambers was able to utilize his skillset in basketball to make a better way for himself - making him a very tough competitor, mentally and physically.
We will continue to follow the college recruitment of Chambers, and also his play very closely this high school season, as he looks to lead Desert Vista to a 6A State title.
Arizona Hoop Review Scouting Report: A native of Brooklyn, New York where he attended acclaimed Christ the King HS, Chambers is a very skilled and electric guard prospect that likes to make plays off the dribble, while also possessing an excellent shooting stroke with serious range. He likes to handle the basketball as much as possible, and create scoring opportunities for himself and others, also as often as possible.
