Montana State will be adding an FBS transfer quarterback familiar with head coach Brent Vigen to compete with Tommy Mellott.
University of Wyoming QB Sean Chambers announced his commitment to MSU on Twitter Sunday, one day after they lost to North Dakota State 38-10 in the FCS National Championship title game.
Chambers has two seasons of eligibility left, has started at least one game in all four years at Wyoming. He was the starter through the first seven games in 2021, including their season opener against Montana State. Chambers threw a 21-yard touchdown with 47 seconds left to beat the Bobcats 19-16.
After struggling for four straight starts, Chambers was replaced by Levi Williams, who recently transferred to Utah State. Chambers finished the 2021 season with 1,125 yards, six touchdowns, and seven interceptions. He also added 198 yards and three touchdowns on 72 carries.
Montana State's current QB is true freshman Tommy "Touchdown" Mellott. Mellott played amazingly well in his first three starts, which were all FCS playoff games, leading the Bobcats to their first FCS National Championship title game since 1984.
Bobcat fans look at Tommy Mellott as a hero, being from Butte Montana as well as taking over for FBS transfer QB Matthew McKay. McKay announced he would be transferring from Montana State right before their playoff opener.
Wyoming and Montana State run similar offenses due to Brent Vigen being their Offensive Coordinator prior to becoming Montana State's head coach. The Bobcats' QB room is going to be packed, at the time of writing this, Tommy Mellott, Tucker Rovig, Sean Austin, and Casey Bauman are all set to return. If Chambers' can stay healthy during this QB competition, he might be able to give Mellott a run for his money.
