Maryland football senior wide receiver Tyrese Chambers is no longer with the program, it was confirmed Tuesday.

He made his decision to leave the program during the bye week, according to the team. Head coach Mike Locksley said at his weekly media availability that Chambers’ decision was made for personal reasons.

Chambers’ journey to College Park was a circuitous one. A Baltimore native, he began his collegiate career in 2018 at Fort Scott Community College in Kansas. He then attended Sacred Heart before thriving at Florida International during the 2021 and 2022 seasons. He transferred to Maryland in the offseason.

Chambers had struggled in his first season with the Terps, managing just seven catches for 51 yards and a touchdown.

“We’re in full support of him,” Locksley added, noting that Chambers is still enrolled at the university and finishing his classes. “... We’ll support Tyrese as he continues to move forward.”
