Early yearsEdit

Chandler grew up in Camden, New Jersey and attended Brimm Medical Arts High School, which did not offer sports teams; as such, under district policy, he played football for Camden High School,[2] where he was named the Philadelphia Inquirer Defensive Player of the Year in 2013 after accumulating eight interceptions as a senior. [3]

College careerEdit

Chandler was considered a three-star recruit by Rivals.com and chose Temple over an offer from Rutgers.[4]

At Temple, Chandler played his freshman and sophomore seasons as a starting cornerback before becoming Temple's starting safety as a junior and senior. Chandler was an all-conference selection in 2015, 2016 and 2017. During his time at Temple, Chandler had 264 tackles, 13 tackles for a loss and 10 interceptions in 49 games.[5]

Professional careerEdit

Coming out of Temple, Chandler was invited to the NFL Scouting Combine and was projected to be either a late-round or priority undrafted free agent selection in the 2018 NFL Draft[6]
