It’s been two days since Harvard’s big recruiting weekend, and the Crimson have now picked up two commitments.

Siyani Chambers committed to Harvard on Tuesday afternoon, a source told

"I felt that it was the right fit for me and I got along with the players and coaches really well," Chambers said. "Also, they have great academics." 

His decision comes only one day after Georgia big man Mike Hall picked the Crimson over plenty of high-major programs. Chambers was no different – major-conference teams from Washington State to Nebraska to Georgia Tech were interested in him. The finalists for his services, though, were UC Davis and UC Santa Barbara.

Chambers, a 5-foot-11 prospect from Hopkins (Minn.), is a pure point guard. The lefty knows how to find teammates in transition or in a half-court setting and is a very solid passer. Chambers can get into the lane to create opportunities for himself or teammates, and he has quick hands defensively.

"I feel that I can help lead and provide energy to and for the team," Chambers said. 

In addition to Chambers and Hall, Harvard also owns a commitment from Northfield Mount Hermon (Mass.) product Evan Cummins.
